Billie Faiers' dad Dave almost missed her Maldives wedding after being kicked off his flight
Billie Faiers' wedding to Greg Shepherd aired on The Mummy Diaries last night, and viewers were left shocked when her dad Dave almost missed the wedding as he was kicked off his flight for being drunk.
Dave Chatwood, 65, revealed that he consumed a bottle of wine and two sleeping pills before boarding - making him too drunk to fly.
He ended up arriving late to the wedding, missing the boozy parties that guests enjoyed in the run-up to the big day.
A teary Billie was seen blasting her dad as 'selfish', and grew concerned that he would miss the big day.
A furious Sam Faiers also blasted: "It's his daughter's wedding. He's giving you away and he can't even get to the wedding."
And Billie said: "Dad decides to take two sleeping pills and a whole load of alcohol. Selfish.
"More than anything I feel so frustrated for him. He’s not going to experience this."
When Dave finally arrived on the island, he and Billie had a teary exchange about the ordeal.
He told her: "I bottled it. I'm scared of flying. I thought I'll take [the sleeping tablet] quickly while I was going through customs.
"I would have swam here for you," he continued.
"There's only going to be one person to walk you down the aisle, and that's me."
He then added: "It's going to kill me, emotionally, to see you get married.
"I'm so proud to have you on my arm. I can't wait."
