THEY stole the spotlight in 2006 with their skimpy outfits, insanely bouncy blow-dries and deep mahogany fake tans.
The England Football WAGs caused more excited than the players, and were even blamed for the team’s shocking World Cup defeat.
Sven Goran Eriksson’s side got knocked out in the quarter finals on, yes you’ve guessed it, penalties.
Victoria Beckham, Cheryl (then Cole) and Coleen Rooney were at the forefront of the exclusive tribe, who rocked the sleepy town of Baden-Baden with their lavish shopping trips and party antics.
Who can forget Elen Rives – the then-girlfriend of Frank Lampard – belting out 70s classic, I Will Survive, on a bar table?
But it seems the era of the Super WAGs is officially over.
Wayne Rooney quit the England team yesterday, meaning wife Coleen’s reign as Queen WAG is officially over.
So, who are the NEW wives and girlfriends cheering our lads on from the sidelines? It’s time to meet the England WAGs 2.0…
The most well-known member of WAG 2.0 is Rebekah Vardy, the 35-year-old wife of Leicester City striker Jamie.
Born Rebekah Nicholson, the star met her future husband after she was hired to organise his birthday party in January 2014.
After a two-year relationship and the birth of their first child, Sofia, the couple tied the knot at Cheshire’s Peckforton Castle in May 25, 2016.
In addition to the two children she has with Jamie, they welcomed son Finlay in January, Rebekah has two children, Megan, 11, and Taylor, six, from previous relationships.
Jamie, 30, also has a five-year-old daughter, Ella, from a relationship with Emma Daggett, bringing their combined brood up to five.
The family live in an eight-bedroomed mansion in Lincolnshire, where they try to grow their own healthy fruit and vegetables as much as possible.
Former Page 3 girl Sam Cooke, 30, got engaged to long-term boyfriend and Man United ace Chris Smalling in July 2016.
At the time, she said she was “ridiculously happy” that the defender had popped the question.
The model, who has graced the pages of The Sun in the past, now works as a photographer.
Sam’s luxury hen do saw her jet to Barbados with a bevvy of Page 3 girls including Rhian Sudgen.
The couple tied the knot in Italy’s stunning Lake Como, the same place George Clooney wed wife Amal, in June – and the footballers and WAGS were out in force for the big day.
The couple live in in Bowdon, Altrincham, an area of Trafford dubbed “millionaire’s row”.
Emirates air hostess Annabel Peyton has only been dating Stoke City goalie Jack Butland for a year – but she certainly thinks he’s a keeper.
The Sun exclusively broke the news that the 23-year-old was dating Butland, who previously dated high school sweetheart Steph Parsons for nearly nine years.
The couple met when the Stoke team went to Dubai for a mid-season break in early 2016.
The Sun revealed in November that Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, 24 and Perrie Edwards, also 24, are an item.
The couple kept their romance out of the spotlight until January when the Little Mix minx posted a picture of the Arsenal winger at her house.
They were then snapped together after the singer enjoyed a wild night at the BRIT awards.
Meanwhile, Alex claims he’s given Zayn Malik’s ex “street cred”.
Perrie gushed in an interview: “I have a boyfriend and his name is Alex. He plays for Arsenal. He’s very cute and hot… and sexy.”
Lingerie model Ruby Mae, 22, has been dating Spurs midfielder Dele Alli, 21, since early last year.
The 5ft 9 beauty is represented by Boss Models in the UK and has starred in campaigns for Dolce & Gabbana.
Last summer, the brunette sent pulses races after posing in a series of patterned lingerie for the fashion brand, Pour Moi.
She’s an avid Instagram user and has racked up an impressive 27,000 followers.
Gemma Acton is the wife of Chelsea captain and England defender Gary Cahill.
The couple have two kids, a daughter called Freya and a son called Leo, and married in Hope Valley in June 2013.
The stay-at-home mum keeps a low profile, and stays away from social media.
She lives with husband Cahill in a luxury mansion in Surrey.
Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart, 30, is loved up with his long-term beau Kimberley.
The pair dated for six years before tying the knot in June 2015 in Florence, Italy.
Wayne Rooney, Frank Lampard and Christine Bleakley were among guests at the star-studded nuptials.
Joe reportedly popped the question during a holiday in Mexico with a diamond ring worth more than £40,000.
Kimberley, 34, previously worked as a beautician.
Glamour model Annie Kilner has been dating Manchester City right-back Kyle Walker, 27, since 2011.
The pair reportedly met in their hometown of Sheffield.
Kyle has previously revealed that his obsessive cleaning drives stunner Annie mad.
During an interview with Nike, he said: “I like things to be clean.
“I don’t like mess. My missus will probably tell you that I drive her insane with all my cleanliness.”
Spurs star Eric Dier, 23, is dating blonde bombshell Maria Hansen.
In July 2016, he shared a snap on Instagram of the pair on holiday together with his footballer mates, Harry Kane and Dele Alli.
During a family holiday to the Bahamas in July, Spurs forward Harry Kane, 24, got down on one knee and popped the question to girlfriend Katie Goodland.
The lovebirds have been together since their schooldays, and are edging close to their six-year anniversary.
Harry and Katie welcomed their first child, daughter Ivy Jane, in January.
Opening up about their romance last year, the footballer told Esquire magazine back in 2016: “We went to school together, so she’s seen my whole career.
“Of course, she’s finding it a little crazy. I think she’s even been in the papers a couple of times taking the dogs out.”
Model Paige Milian is dating childhood sweetheart Raheem Sterling.
In January, the pair welcomed their first child together, son Thiago.
A source said: “Raheem is over the moon with the safe arrival of his first son.
“He was present all the way through the birth and helped Paige through labour.
“Paige is recovering well and Thiago was a very healthy weight and is doing well.
“They are very loved up at the moment and on a high after the birth.
“No one is sure why the baby is called Thiago – it’s not a family name but I think it’s just a name that Raheem and Paige both liked the sound of.
“I’m sure Raheem will be getting a baby City shirt with his name on the back for Thiago as soon as he can.”
