IT may have been dubbed a bit of fun, but Wigan-born Tanya Bardsley was livid after her husband Phil knocked Wayne Rooney out.

A video was leaked of Phil, a Stoke City defender, punching Wayne during a friendly boxing bout in Wayne’s kitchen. Wayne then appeared to fall unconscious on the floor.

Real Housewives of Cheshire star Tanya was reported to be angry at her husband, as it would scupper her chances of becoming friends with Wayne’s high profile wife Coleen.

A source revealed: “Tanya’s really annoyed about the whole thing. She can’t imagine Coleen was too impressed by it and that’s a shame as Tanya’s been keen to befriend her for a long time.”
