Flights at Gatwick Airport are now delayed because of the apparently boozy father of the bride
BILLIE Faiers’ wedding has been left in jeopardy as her father was “too drunk” to get on the plane.
The whole family gathered at Gatwick Airport tonight to fly to the Maldives for Billie’s beach wedding to Greg Shepherd.
But their carefully laid plans soon came unstuck when father-of-the-bride Lee Faiers was told he couldn’t board after apparently enjoying one too many drinks before trying to board the flight.
“Billie’s dad has been refused on the flight because he was too drunk and all the flights were delayed because of him,” one furious passenger exclusively told The Sun Online.
“He delayed everything after that and other passengers were fuming when they saw what was going on.”
Billie’s best mate Ferne McCann was seen consoling Lee as he feared he had ruined his youngest daughter’s big day.
The pair were later seen giggling like naughty school kids after apparently indulging in too much champagne in the lounge before boarding.
“It’s fair to say he saw the funny side but other passengers didn’t,” our source added.
It’s thought that distraught Billie and her family begged staff to pull some strings and eventually Lee was finally let onto the flight with just days to go before her wedding.
The group were some of 95 guests jetting out to the Maldives to see Billie get hitched to fiance Greg Shepherd.
