“She literally hit my child.”

Billie Faiers has opened up about a stressful ordeal she faced during a flight with her family.

She revealed that a random woman smacked her son when they were flying home from Dubai.

Speaking on her podcast The Sam & Billie Show, she revealed that her three-year-old son Arthur was acting up during the flight.

She explained that her son was kicking the back of the woman’s seat. As annoying as that can be, the woman had no right to lay a hand on the young boy.

Billie admitted she was stunned when the woman smacked her son.

“Don’t get me wrong, this is really annoying. There was a woman sitting in front, a bit older, 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 around and she smacked him. 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. When I mean I kicked off, I was going mental.”

The mum explained that everyone was looking “because she was going absolutely mental”.

The mum said she was so angry over the incident.

She continued, “But this woman – I think she was German. So, there must have been a language barrier.

“But at the end of the day, she literally hit my child. She didn’t hurt him, but she smacked him. I was honestly in such shock – I was furious.”

The mum-of-two said she didn’t even receive an apology from the woman.
