Jack Fowler ate food containing nuts on his flight

Former Love Island star Jack Fowler has opened up about suffering a serious reaction on a flight to Dubai.

The reality star admitted he thought he was going to die during the incident, but was rushed to hospital for treatment once the plane landed.

He explained to The Sun that he had ordered plain chicken curry free from nuts, but the sauce was actually blended with cashew nuts.

He said it was an error that never should’ve occurred.

“You go to these flights and you pay all this money, thousands of pounds in some cases, to get to a destination safely. And now this has happened.”

The influencer said his throat closed up during the allergic reaction and he needed emergency treatment.

He was so scared and believed he was going to die because he couldn’t breathe.

“I’m looking at my three friends that are on the flight with me and I’m saying to them, God, I think I’m going to die because I can’t breathe, you know, I can’t talk.

“I can just about breathe. And, you know, I’m having my anaphylactic shock. I’m shaking. My heart’s going crazy,” he shared.

The reality star said it was a petrifying experience, but one that should not have happened.

“You know, my eyes are stinging. My skin’s itching. I feel really hot,” he added.

He stressed that this incident could’ve been prevented, but the staff wasn’t careful enough when it came to his allergy.

“I don’t care if they’ve got, you know, these policies that they have, right, online. They’re good. And we need them but ultimately, when I ask someone, has it got nuts in? And they say no, and it has. That could have killed me.”
