The stars of Take That suffered a travel nightmare on a flight from Los Angeles to London this week when the plane they were travelling on was forced to make two unscheduled landings.

Take That stars in mid-air drama

Gary Barlow and two of his bandmates, Howard Donald and Mark Owen, were heading back to the UK after spending time in California recording a new album, but the journey, which usually takes around 11 hours, turned into a 24-hour travel marathon.

The plane was diverted to Toronto, Canada due to unspecified technical problems, and continued onwards after the fault had been fixed, according to the Daily Mirror newspaper.

However, the plane had to touch down again in Shannon, Ireland as the crew had worked all of their allocated hours and could not complete the journey.

The passengers moved to a different plane and continued on to London's Heathrow Airport, where they landed on Thursday night.

Donald was subsequently asked about the travel problems by a fan on Twitter, and he added of the drama: "Believe it or not it's actually true! Bleeding nightmare."
