Controversial MAFS bride Jessika Power has denied accusations that she was drunk in a Snapchat video she posted on Sunday night, where she appeared to be driving while under the influence.

The 27-year-old filmed herself and her aunt Rebecca Clair while she was behind the wheel, looking to find alcohol and cigarettes late at night.

In the now-deleted video, which Jessika says was only shared with her close friends and family, she can be seen slurring her words, screaming and laughing, filming the video herself while she also drives her car.

Talking to the camera, Jessika explains that she and her aunt were going to buy alcohol and cigarettes, and took their family dog Emma along with them.

'We took the dog with us because she barks, and Uncle Mark, I mean Uncle Ray, lives right next door to us, and if he knew that we were gonna drink and drive and get cigarettes we'd be in that much trouble," she said.

Then talking to her aunt, she says: "I don't think you should try and act responsible on TV right now, because we're not responsible adults."

After discovering that their local liquor store "BWS is shut", Jessika laments, "Where are we going to go?"

Screaming at the camera, she says, "Let's go the pub! Let's get dressed and go to the pub!"

Rebecca encourages Jessika to put down her phone, to which Jessika replies: "I'm going through a f---ing break up!"

"Get your phone off right now, because I am not being done by police!" Rebecca urges Jessika, who jokes in response: "I wish I was done by a police officer."

Finally, she asks her aunt: "Can we get KFC? I'm starving!"

After Jess's Snapchat video was aired on Channel Nine news on Sunday night, she posted an apology on her Instagram stories the next day, saying the video had been taken "out of context".

"I was not intoxicated in the video, yes I had two glasses of wine at dinner (hour before getting in a car)," she wrote.

Jess claims she and her aunt often "play around" in videos and it was a "fun side" of herself she wanted to share.

"I am completely over-exaggerating my words and actions to the camera. There is no way I would go out in public, let along drive a car if I was that drunk. My aunty and I are against drink driving and would never endorse or participate in it.

"I understand that I have a little growing up to do in my decision making and the effect my choices have on others."

During her time on MAFS, Jessika became famous for her drunk and disorderly behaviour during the group dinner parties. 

She would frequently get into altercations with fellow brides Cyrell and Martha, then wake up the next day regretting her actions.

Jessika also frequently posts photos of herself on social media drinking alcohol.

Alongside a photo of Jess drinking a glass of wine, she wrote: "Having a wine with all my friends and living life without any hate or negativity. Here's to all the good times ahead (and the countless bottles of wine I will no doubt drink)🍷😚".
