FORMER England star Wayne Rooney is making a sequel to his sensational Prime Video documentary after it proved such a hit last year.
The show, simply called Rooney, was a warts-and-all look at his professional and private life – and the follow up promises to be just as in-depth.

Only this time the new programme, which has yet to get a working title, will focus more on Wayne’s attempts to develop his career as a football manager in the US.
A TV insider said: “The doc is in the very early stages of development but given how big the first show was, there’s a real appetite for more.
“There’s continued interest, not just in Wayne, but his entire family, particularly after the epic Wagatha legal battle which saw wife Coleen Rooney taking centre stage for a change.
“It’s not certain which channel or streaming service would air the show, but Prime Video would be the obvious choice given they aired the first profile.”
But there’s unlikely to be any clash between the respective shows from Mr and Mrs Rooney as the second doc on Wayne’s life is unlikely to drop until 2024 at the earliest.
There’s certainly plenty to explore in the programme thanks to his interesting move from English football to the US where he last year became manager of D.C. United, in Washington D.C..
The show is being developed by top production company Lorton, who made Prime Video’s Rooney and are making Coleen’s Wagatha documentary.
They also produced We Are Newcastle United and Boom Boom!: Boris Becker VS The World.
Prime Video and Lorton declined to comment.

Anton Du Beke said: “To have been part of a show that is part of the fabric of British consciousness – and the world’s – blows my mind.”
Craig Revel Horwood said: “Strictly embraces everybody and it has won the hearts and minds of so many.”
Motsi Mabuse agreed: “It’s such a special time of the year when Strictly starts.

Daisy – who this year was rumoured to be in talks to join the Bond franchise as spy chief M – revealed: “I’ve met Princess Anne but I didn’t know it was Princess Anne . . . She was buying towels.
Daisy continued, on tonight’s Never Mind The Buzzcocks, on Sky Max: “I was working in House of Fraser and we had a manager who used to say, ‘You’ve got to push House of Fraser cards on people’.
“So Princess Anne came up and I said ‘would you like a Fraser card? I just need to take a few details like your bank details and mum’s maiden name’.”
Think of the points you would rack up furnishing Buckingham Palace.
