Born to a happy and close-knit family in Croxteth, Liverpool, Coleen was first snapped by the paparazzi on her way to the school she shared with her boyfriend, football star Wayne Rooney. Since then, Coleen has become darling of the glossy magazines and tabloids who love her for her chic and up-to-date fashion sense and her happy, grounded attitude. Coleen's adopted sister Rosie suffers from a rare genetic disorder, and in 2006 Coleen presented a Tonight with Trevor McDonald programme on the role of children's hospices in helping the families of disabled children. Coleen has also written a magazine column and is the face of many high-profile brands.
