Jeremy Clarkson in foul-mouthed rant at ‘fat s***’ that has caused Gatwick chaos
The drone-related chaos that has grounded flights at Gatwick Airport, leaving 110,000 passengers stranded before Christmas has also irked one of the more outspoken celebrities in the country.
It is unclear whether former Top Gear presenter Jeremy Clarkson is actually stuck within the confines of the airport’s terminal but it hasn’t stopped him lashing out at the person responsible for the continuing travel nightmare.
The 58-year-old launched a scathing, expletive-ridden rant at the guilty party, sharing his hope that "someone kills him."
All 760 flights in and out of Gatwick were cancelled on Thursday and police, aided by the army, are looking to bring down the drone, with plans to shoot it from the sky being discussed.
The outspoken TV presenter has had enough though and tweeted to his seven million followers: "’I really hope that when the fat s*** at Gatwick is caught, someone kills him.’
While Jeremy calls for vengeance on the mystery drone operator, Countdown star Rachel Riley appears to be actually caught up in the travel madness.
The 32-year-old TV mathematician revealed that her flight out of the UK has been delayed for at least 48 hours.
Despite having to reschedule her Christmas plans, Rachel is not so inflammatory in her summation of the situation.
In fact, Rachel is seeing the positive side of the drone bringing the airport to a halt.
She tweeted that, "blimmin drones," had meant that the enforced delay will give her a chance to get, "home, sleep and a shower."
Officials at the airport, the UK’s second busiest, have said that they are hoping to reintroduce some flights out in the coming hours.
With marksmen looking to be deployed to bring the drone down, the operator of the flight cancelling machine will hope that it is the police that get to him first and not a clearly upset Clarkson.
