Friends of Wayne and Coleen Rooney 'punched' man and woman at Glastonbury who asked for photo of footballer

Not experienced festival goers: Friends with Coleen and Wayne Rooney at Glastonbury are said to have got involved in fisticuffs with fans last night

It may have been their first foray to the muddy fields of the Glastonbury Festival.

But it appears that trouble has followed Man United footballer Wayne Rooney and wife Coleen as friends of the couple allegedly 'punched' a man and woman who asked for photos with the premiership footballer's wife.

Wayne and Coleen both 25, arrived at the festival on Friday by helicopter, with Wayne’s brother Graeme and cousin Claire, along with Coleen’s long-time friend Amy Louise Wilkinson.

And last night, the group were seen among the crowd at the main Pyramid stage while band Elbow were performing their set.

They were soon swarmed by fans wanting pictures with them. A source told Mail Online: 'Coleen seemed p*ssed off that Wayne was mingling with the crowd and posing for pictures with women.'

However, upon being approached by two other festivalgoers for souvenir photos of the celebrity couple, things turned darker.

A source told MailOnline: 'Wayne refused saying to them "I just want five minutes with my mates".'

Soon after, the request prompted an allegedly violent reaction by some of his group.

Muddy hell: Coleen posted up a picture of herself and some of her friends sat on deckchairs on the festival site

The eyewitness said: 'His people started on a guy and a girl. Punching them.' The
ensuing ruckus saw people near the couple getting shoved around in the crowd before security stepped in and broke it up.

'The guy and the girl seemed pretty shaken up. And Wayne and Coleen were escorted away.' No doubt back to the safer confines of the VIP area.

It's not clear who in the Rooneys party threw the punches. However, this latest incident will no doubt raise eyebrows at the millionaire footballer's club, which is currently in its off-season.

However, Coleen seemed keen to move on from the apparent incident, posting up on her Twitter late last night a picture of herself and friends sat on deckchairs, with a message gushing about last night's headliners: 'Coldplay live!!! Excellent!! #betterthaniexpected'

While they may have been rubbing shoulders with the festivalgoers, the millionaire couple are not sparing any expense on their trip to the highly anticipated festival, which has been turned into a mudfest by heavy rain last week.

They arrived with their party on Friday morning in a private helicopter - a £5,000 trip - which ferried them from their home in Cheshire to a VIP campsite next to the main festival site.

The couple have splashed out £15,000 on a stay in a Winnebago to make sure their experience as the three-day bash is rather more comfortable — and certainly drier — than most other festival-goers this weekend.

Despite the rain and dark clouds, Rooney attempted to go incognito in sunglasses as the couple walked arm in arm wearing matching Hunter boots.

In true WAG fashion, Coleen opted for a pair of £350 custom-made Hunter wellies with leopard-print lining.

The couple were also spotted being given VIP treatment at a back stage bar where they were smuggled out of a side staff-only entrance.

Other stars seen at the festival yesterday included Kate Moss, there to watch fiancé Jamie Hince in his band The Kills,
