When Andrew asked Priscilla Coleman about conveying emotion in her sketches, she said Ms Vardy was "really distressed".
"Rebekah Vardy has cried more than - I don't think anyone's cried as much as her, or at all besides her," she said.
"She was really distressed."
She and Andrew then looked through a selection of her court sketches, including one of Ms Vardy with her head on the table - and one of Andrew himself in the LBC studio.
When she was asked about her experience of being in court, she said she had a "great seat" and was close enough to touch Wayne Rooney.
"I sit with all the press and it's hard to get a seat but if I have a seat that's great... in this one I've got a great seat," she said.
"I could stretch my arm out... and I could touch Wayne Rooney if I wanted."
Of the trial itself, she said: "It's their money, and if that's the way they want to spend it, it's their choice.
"But in a way, I don't know if - it almost makes you wonder if someone's doing this on purpose, because you can do a great made-for-TV movie about this."
Her comment led Andrew to suggest "Wagatha Christie the musical".
