The picture came following a weekend where Coleen hit back at Twitter users who had criticised her appearance and Wayne's performance in England's World Cup opener against Italy.

Responding to one user's criticism of Wayne, she said: "You take his place then! Let's see how you get on!"

To another similar comment, she said: "Phone [England coach] Roy [Hodgson] up then!"

But in responding to other users, she did get a bit of criticsm herself for describing one follower as "chunky". "No need to be rude to him," said another user. "He's allowed his opinion. Calling someone chunky is just nasty."

Coleen replied: "Who asked you?"

Today, the fashion designer and her sons will travel to Brazil to support Wayne, with Coleen, 28, explaining: "I don't want the boys to grow up and say, 'How come you never took us to watch my dad play in the World Cup?'"

According to the Daily Star, the family will say in a separate hotel to Wayne and the England team, and travel by private jet to England's remaining group stage matches.
