The Wag has signed a mega-bucks deal to take part in a documentary about the infamous Wagatha Christie showdown.

It is set to air on Discovery+ in the coming months.

A source said: “Becky has been inundated with offers ever since the trial ended.

“She has made no secret she believes she has been hard done by and is keen for her voice to be heard.

“Right now she is facing the prospect of a hefty legal bill and sees this documentary as a way to recoup some of the costs.

“Obviously her fee won’t be anything like the cost of her lawyers but it will help.”

The Sun told earlier this week how Becky, who is married to footballer Jamie, and Coleen, wife to Wayne, are once again locking horns despite the latter winning their libel case in July after Coleen accused Becky’s Instagram account of leaking information about her.

Becky is said to be furious once more after Coleen revealed her court costs had doubled to a £1.5million.

She had initially estimated £750,000. Speaking to TalkTV after losing her case, Becky explained she had been approached by a string of different companies with job proposals.

She said: “There’s been quite a few offers on the table for lots of different things already.

“For me, it’s important to find something that inspires me and something that’s meaningful and that I really, really want to do.”

She added she had considered quitting life in the public eye but changed her mind, saying: “I did go through stages of thinking that, and then I thought, ‘I don’t know, no — probably not.’

“You’ll probably see me doing things that are different.

“I want to concentrate on the horses and the kids, rebuilding the lost time I’ve had dealing with all these stresses.”

Referencing lyrics from the musical’s song Dancing Through Life, Jon tweeted: “He’s perfect, they’re perfect. They’d be perfect together.

“Born to be forever . . . I am too excited to pretend this hasn’t been happening.

THERE has been plenty of drama surrounding new film Don’t Worry Darling but director Olivia Wilde isn’t letting it get to her.

She looked in good spirits in this low-cut white dress while promoting the movie in New York on Wednesday, when she denied she was having a feud with lead star Florence Pugh.

Addressing the fact Florence skipped a press conference for the movie at the Venice Film Festival – which many believed was a result of drama between the cast – Olivia said: “I have nothing but respect for Florence’s talent

“She’s fantastic. She’s on the set of her movie Dune right now. There’s nothing cooler than a busy actress. I have nothing against her for any reason.”

Olivia also laughed off a video clip which appeared to show her boyfriend Harry Styles, who stars in the film, spitting on co-star Chris Pine at the premiere.

She insisted: “No, he did not. But I think it’s a perfect example of people will look for drama anywhere they can.

“Harry did not spit on Chris.”

LILY Allen hasn’t released new music for years but an old song has just come back to bite her.

She looked every bit the pop star as she attended Milan Fashion Week on Wednesday – and although she famously had a hit called Smile, she didn’t have much of a grin on her face.

But given where she was seated, perhaps she had a good reason.

The singer, sporting an oversized coat, was one of a handful of celebs at Fendi’s fashion show, and she sat alongside model Jourdan Dunn, who she badmouthed on 2014 song Insincerely Yours.

On that track, she sang: “I don’t give a f**k about The ­Delevingne, that Rita girl, about Jourdan Dunn.”

If she ever gets around to making another album, she will have learnt her lesson not to drop names.
