A REALITY star who splashed out his benefits on a trip for cosmetic surgery was booted off his flight after launching into a drunken tirade at other passengers.
Ex-Geordie Shore star Grant Coulson, 30, was spotted by a group of holidaymakers who started to shout at him to get a real job on the flight to Turkey.
Coulson previously claimed he was “too famous” to work and flaunted how he was spending taxpayer funds on more surgery.
He was booted off the Jet2 flight from Newcastle to Antalya on Saturday afternoon after the boozy row.
The reality star had been planning on getting more work done, including a hair transplant, when travelling to Turkey.
But fellow passengers started screaming at him “too famous to fly”, which resulted in him being kicked off.

A source told Sun: “When he got on the plane a few people noticed him from the papers.
"Someone then googled his name and a few words were exchanged and things got heated."
The ex-MTV star was forced to wait 48 hours before boarding a different flight to undergo the latest of a string of procedures he’s had using benefits and furlough cash.
Grant told The Sun: “I was on the flight heading to Turkey to get my teeth fixed and get a hair transplant.

“People were shouting 'Too famous to fly' at me and had their phones out. I’d had a few drinks and was being wound up.
“The plane doors were shut and we were moving but the crew decided to stop and eject me.
“I probably shouldn’t have reacted and should have just ignored it. But I don’t see what I’ve done to be ashamed of. As far as I’m concerned the haters can go to hell.”
The Sun revealed in November how Grant, who reportedly believes he’s “too famous” to get a job, has been splurging benefit cash on cosmetic surgery.
He’s so far spent £15,000 on his teeth and a hair transplant, after being beaten up at an out-of-control Easter party at his home in April, leaving him with a broken nose.
The reality star saved £6,000 of taxpayer cash, a £1,500 Covid grant and extra money from his OnlyFans over two years to fund the surgery.
Last year unrelenting Grant insisted he “didn’t care” what people thought about him using benefits to bankroll his ops.
He added: “I’m only claiming what’s rightfully mine. I’m not breaking any laws and I needed to undergo this surgery to increase my confidence.
“I am happy again now and hopefully will be back on TV so won’t need to claim benefits and stuff.”
The scrounger previously received a nose job on the NHS because he believed it was too big and had fillers for acne scars paid for by hardworking taxpayers.
