A source told The Sun: "Her foot got caught in the stirrup and she was dragged along the ground while it was spinning in circles.

"Becky was taken to hospital and after X-rays was told she’d broken the heel on her left foot. Other bones in the foot are fractured too and she’s got a bit of ligament damage.

"Becky is a confident rider but this accident left her pretty badly shaken."

Rebekah apparently saw the funny side in her ending up in the same boot Coleen Rooney wore during their famous Wagatha Christie libel trial.

The accident happened shortly after Rebekah returned from a holiday with children.

Coleen, 37, underwent a two-year investigation in a bid to find out who was leaking details of her life to The Sun newspaper. She has recently opened up about her side of this story in her new Disney+ docuseries, Coleen Rooney: The Real Wagatha Story.
