WAGS at war Coleen Rooney and Becky Vardy are both being eyed up for major telly roles.
The feuding footballers’ wives and former friends both look set for screen comebacks.
TV executives believe they will be huge ratings draws after “Wagatha Christie” — when Coleen publicly accused Becky of leaking details of her private life to the media.
ITV’s Dancing on Ice is desperate to sign up Coleen, 34, in a big money deal after it has faced criticism in the past for securing low-rent celebrities to take part.
Meanwhile, producers at the channel’s daytime show Loose Women are keen to recruit mum-of-five Becky, 38, as a regular panellist after the impending court clash between the pair is over.
I’m A Celeb star Becky, wife of Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy, 33, looks to be heading for an expensive legal battle with his ex-England team-mate Wayne Rooney’s missus to settle their dispute.
The women held their first arbitration meeting this month during a video call with lawyers but it ended in deadlock.
An industry source said: “Both women have been absent from TV screens for over a year and there is a lot of interest in their comeback.
“Dancing on Ice bookers have made it clear Coleen is number one on their list as they think she’ll bring star quality to their line-up and interest from football fans.
“It’s been a long time since she has done anything on TV, but they are hoping she might be ready to return to the limelight.
“Loose Women producers already have a great track record with Becky and really love how opinionated she is, plus, as a mother, she is relatable to viewers.
“They’d love to sign her as a regular but feel it would be better once the legal matter is out of the way.”
The pair’s row exploded last autumn when Coleen went on social media to accuse Becky of leaking stories from her private Instagram account.
Coleen explained she turned detective by planting bogus stories only one user at a time could see to find out who was responsible.
Becky, heavily pregnant at the time, angrily denied it and rang Coleen to tearfully ask why she had accused her.
She later gave an interview on Loose Women talking about the strain the incident had caused her.
