The 25-year-old former model was slammed as 'reckless' by other drivers who witnessed the dangerous stunt.

One told MailOnline: 'She could have killed someone. It was so dangerous. It needs exposing. She clearly thinks she can do whatever she wants and to hell with the consequences.

He added: 'She was putting every single person on the road around her at risk.'

Motoring organisations also criticised the mother-of-two after viewing the video.

A RAC spokesman said: 'Regardless of how routine driving might feel for those of us that do it regularly, it remains a very mentally demanding task, and one that every driver needs to pay their full attention to.

'This driver would clearly be unable to stop in an emergency if needed – the consequences of which could be tragic.'

And Edmund King, AA president, said: 'Until the advent of fully autonomous cars drivers need to keep their feet on the floor with easy access to the pedals. In the event of an emergency this driver would not be able to stop.

'This driver could easily incur penalty points without the need for VAR.'
