A woman who was filmed straddling a man on a Ryanair flight denies the pair were having $ex.
Tracey Bolton told a friend that ‘it was just a lap dance’ – however admitted she was ‘mortified’ that it had gone viral.
The 39-year-old shocked passengers on the plane from Manchester to Ibiza on Friday when she was seen straddling 31-year-old Shaun Edmondson.
It later emerged that Edmondson, who is known as a ‘ladies’ man, was on his own stag do while his pregnant fiancee Jenna Ross, 25, waited for him at home.
In a clip he asks people around him for a cond0m.
According to friends, Ms Bolton, a cafe owner and mother-of-three, had been drinking at Manchester airport before meeting with Shaun on the flight.
Speaking to The Sun, Tracey’s friend Kirsty Lawton from Colne in Lancashire, said: ‘Nothing really happened. She did a fully clothed lap dance for a laugh, no $exy time occurred.
The pair of them were being daft and it was all for a laugh. They didn’t know one another, as if you would do that with anyone let alone a stranger.’
Speaking through her friend, Tracey said: ‘I am absolutely mortified. What started as a bit of drunken madness has gone worldwide. I am horrified but absolutely nothing happened. I haven’t stopped crying since I saw it. I am so embarrassed.’
A 21-year-old who filmed the encounter described the shock at watching the couple get it on.
Kieran Williams, from Preston, Lancashire, said: ‘I heard them talking about it but I thought they were joking. The guy was shouting, “Anyone got a jelly?” meaning condom.
‘We all laughed but then ten minutes later they actually did it. They seemed so drunk, they brought a lot of attention to themselves.
‘You could see the girl taking off her pants and he pulled his trousers off. She started riding him.
‘I had to get my phone out. I have never seen anything like that.’
A Ryanair spokesman said: ‘We are looking into this matter. We will not tolerate unruly, disruptive or inappropriate behaviour at any time and any passengers who appear to behave in an unacceptable manner may be liable for further sanctions.’
