Coleen McLoughlin says she doesn't need to rely on Wayne Rooney for money

Coleen McLoughlin may be best known as Mrs Wayne Rooney but she doesn't want to be thought of as just another WAG.

The 22-year-old points out that she has her own income and will never be found dipping into her footballer husband's pocket.

'People think I'm just a footballer's wife and that I spend all his money,' she says.

'Actually, I only spend my own money. I have a career and my own celebrity and I don't need Wayne for that.'

Her personal fortune is thought to be around £8 million, earned from her perfume deal, George At Asda campaign and TV presenting.

But since getting married in June, she now hopes to expand in another area.

'Hopefully we can start a family,' she tells S Magazine. 'That's something I've always wanted.'
