X Factor’s Tracy Leanne Jefford’s mum downs a bottle of vodka while bare back on a horse as her traveller lifestyle is revealed

X FACTOR star Tracy Leanne Jefford’s mum has been filmed drinking vodka while riding bare back on a horse.

The bizarre video surfaced online, showing the singer’s mum swigging from a bottle as she holds onto the reins of a horse.

In what appears to be a version of drinking game Neknominate – which took the Internet by storm in 2014 – Tracy’s mum says to the camera: “I’m doing the nomination for Debbie because she can’t do it because she’s got a bad back, but I’m game for it.”

She then downs some vodka from the bottle before wincing as the alcohol hits the back of her throat.

Her Facebook profile also reveals she is friends with My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding star Paddy Doherty.

The Irish traveller went on to win Celebrity Big Brother in 2011 but it’s unclear if the pair are just online friends or mates in real life.

Tracy, 34, previously told the Daily Star Sunday that her divorce from husband of 17 years was only accepted by the traveller community that she’s part of because he had cheated on her.

She said: “I’m not ashamed to say when I got those divorce papers I didn’t have any feelings of remorse.

“I wasn’t frowned upon for leaving him because if there is an affair involved then no woman should stay in a relationship if you’re betrayed.

“That’s how I am and that was the worst thing he could have done to me by having another woman.

“But now I’ve never been so happy in my life.

The mum-of-three also spoke about her incredible five-stone weight loss, which came after she discovered her husband’s betrayal.

She said: “I caught my husband cheating and it’s the best thing that’s ever happened. I wouldn’t be here if I hadn’t.

“My ex-husband put me down a lot, he could be controlling but now I’m free.

“I never had confidence when I was big and I was put down quite a lot over the years and I didn’t know who I was.

“I walked around with my head down as I thought I was ugly.

“Now I know I’m not ugly, I feel a million dollars and I know the person that I am now.”
