A Place in the Sun star Danni Menzies is the latest to have their travel plans thwarted by the airport delays.

The Scottish TV presenter, 32, has found herself stranded in Spain with a heavily pregnant friend, just days before attending a wedding.

To make matters worse, the only flight she’s been offered as a solution… is next week!

Sharing the chaos with her followers, Danni revealed that the Air Traffic Control carnage made her one of millions struggling to get home, as she and her pals were due to fly home from Mallorca yesterday (Monday).

Ranting on Twitter, Danni wrote: ‘Flight cancelled today! After sitting on a plane for 5hrs…. Airport carnage in Mallorca. Any idea on how I can get home asap with my heavily pregnant friend before Thursday as our best friend is getting married Friday!!! HELP! @British_Airways @Iberia.’

She then joked: ‘Anyone with a super yacht in Palma fancy giving us a lift across the pond? @British_Airways are paying….’

Taking to her Instagram Story with pics, Danni shared a selfie with her firneds as they left the plane.

‘Got on the plane for a four hour chill…. & then got off again…’, she wrote.

Alas, things didn’t pick up, as Danni later posted a snap from dinner.

Her caption read: ‘And now we’re stranded for the foreseeable.’

Danni also revealed that British Airways had offered her a trip back to London next week which, unsurprisingly, is no good to her.

As her pregnant friend nears her due date, Danni made a crack about having to deliver her baby if they don’t make it back to home soil in time.

In her last update, she pleaded: ‘Good job I’m a regular at under packing and so very good at washing my pants in the sink. Can’t say I’ve ever delivered a baby though. Can you at least get my pregnant pal home @British_Airways.’

Danni certainly isn’t alone in facing a chaotic end to their summer holidays.

The likes of Montana Brown was also left stranded at the airport, choosing to drink her own breast milk to quench her thirst.

Meanwhile, Dawn O’Porter has joked she ‘lives in Mallorca now’ after computers went down in a network-wide outage on Bank Holiday Monday, causing more than 500 flights to be cancelled.

Those cancelled flights saw Maya Jama and Stormzy stranded on the tarmac in Greece, proving even the hottest stars can’t escape the travel chaos.

The flight madness is showing no signs of calming down soon, iether.

Despite the technical issue being resolved, National Air Traffic Services (Nats), which controls UK airspace, has applied ‘traffic flow restrictions’ due to the backlog.

Therefore, airlines have had to cancel flights and delay countless others.
