Katie Price and her fiancé Carl Woods were asked to leave a flight to Las Vegas after she refused to wear a face mask, a fellow passenger has claimed.
The couple have flown to the gambling hotspot amid reports that they’re planning to get married.
And while they’ve arrived, with former Love Island star Carl sharing snaps from inside the airport and videos of them driving along the strip, it seems that the journey may not have been a smooth one.
A woman who was on a flight from New York to Las Vegas claims Katie and Carl were asked to leave the flight, because the former glamour model wouldn’t wear a mask, the Mirror reports.

The holidaymaker wrote on Twitter: ” @KatiePrice Just got thrown off our flight from New York to Las Vegas with her boyfriend!! So annoying and embarrassing. Wear your bloody mask was it worth it.”
She added: “Apparently she was asked 4 times to put mask on and she refused when warned she would be taken off the plane she said go on then they had no idea who she was – Carl looked mortified.
“She said to me “ I didn’t do anything”! Matching cream tracksuits so embarrassing.”
When people questioned her account, she told them: “Lol. I wouldn’t lie. She apparently had come of a connecting flight. The funny thing was she was right back in economy and my hubby and I were lucky enough to be in first so when they brought them past us it was a very weird moment.”
The woman added that she has spoken to Katie as she walked past, and that the mum-of-five insisted she had done nothing wrong.
A friend of Katie’s explained why she wasn’t wearing her mask.
They told The Sun: “Katie was on the phone to her kids so had pulled the mask down to be heard more clearly.
“She was just finishing up the call when cabin crew came over and told her she needed to wear the mask over her mouth.”
Responding to claims Katie was thrown off the plane, they said: “Not true. She chose to exit the plane as she hadn’t finished speaking to her kids. She just walked off and got the next flight out – there was no big drama.”
A Delta spokesperson said: “In accordance with the U.S. federal mandate, Delta requires all its customers over the age 2 to wear a face covering throughout their journey.
“Customers may temporarily lower their masks to eat or drink but they must remain on at all other times. The safety of our customers and employees is always our top priority.”
Carl had shared parts of their journey on his Instagram story.
They were seen in the airport before jetting off to Las Vegas, which Carl described as his “second home”.
Sharing a snap of his airport pint strategically framed alongside his designer watch, Carl added images of a plane and a US flag as he wrote: “I’m coming back to my 2nd home”.
He then shared a video of Katie as she sat opposite him using her phone.
She asked him not to film her because she had a “double chin”, prompting him to zoom in on her face for a closer look.
He then asked his followers to guess where he was going, before revealing he was “finally home” alongside a picture of a “Welcome to Las Vegas” sign in the airport, and sharing footage as they rode down the strip in a car.
A source told The Sun: “They’re madly in love and want to make things official as soon as possible.
“She wants to become Mrs Woods as soon as she can.”
