‘I forgive him’: Coleen Rooney appears in first trailer for documentary about husband Wayne


Coleen Rooney has appeared in the first trailer for a documentary about her husband Wayne Rooney's life, where she says "I forgive him, but it wasn't acceptable".

The 35-year-old and the former England captain, also 35, were childhood sweethearts and got married in 2008, at the age of 22.

The couple have four sons – Kai, Cass, Klay and Kit, and Coleen has enjoyed success as a businesswoman and author.

However, their relationship has not been without problems and they have in the past appealed for privacy following allegations about Wayne's private life.

In 2004, the former Manchester United star responded to tabloid claims that he had been to a brothel in his home city of Liverpool, by admitting he had visited massage parlours and had sex with prostitutes.


In the trailer for the upcoming film, titled Rooney, Coleen says: "I knew groups Wayne was hanging around with – together with alcohol – not good."

She later says: "I forgive him, but it wasn't acceptable."
