Billie Faiers has recalled the moment a stranger smacked her son on a plane after he kicked her chair while having a tantrum.
The former Towie star, 32, shares daughter Nelly, eight, and son Arthur, five, with husband Greg Shepherd, and revealed that the ‘red mist’ descended when a stranger smacked him on the arm from the seat in front.
Arthur, who was around three years old at the time of the incident, had been kicking the seat in front of him when the family jetted off on holiday, which annoyed the woman sitting in it.
Billie explained her worst experience on a plane on her Sam & Billie Show podcast: ‘We were on the way back from Dubai and there was a family that was sat in front of us and Arthur was kicking off a bit, as they do sometimes.
‘Don’t get me wrong, this is really annoying. He was on my lap and I was trying to say “calm down” and there was a woman sat in front, a bit older, and he kicked the back of her seat.
‘I was like “oh god, so sorry”. Then he was having a bit of a tantrum, crying, she turned round and she smacked him. I swear to god.’
The physical contact had Billie furious as she continued: ‘I went “Excuse me!” I stood up… you know when you have the red mist and you’re shaking.
‘She smacked him on his arm. I think she was German or something, when I mean I kicked off, I was going mental.’
Her husband Greg, who had been sitting a few rows ahead of Billie and the kids, was woken up the commotion as Billie confronted the woman for slapping her child.
However, the incident was thankfully soon calmed down by an air hostess who quickly came over to where they were sat.
