Love Island star is RUSHED to hospital after allergic reaction on Dubai flight


Jack Fowler was rushed to hospital following a terrifying allergic reaction on his recent flight to Dubai

The former Love Island star took to his Instagram to berate the airline following the incident which left him breathing through an oxygen mask. 

The star explained he was flying with Emirates and claimed he had told the flight attendant several times that he had a nut allergy. 


However, despite his warnings he was served a chicken cashew nut curry and within seconds his throat closed up and he began to struggle to breath. 

Jack was given five tanks of oxygen and had to administer his Adrenaline Pen (Epi Pen) but confessed he was left with the ‘real possibility of dying on the plane’. 


He wrote: ‘Cant believe I’m having to post this. And I’m posting because people should be aware of the severity of how bad food allergies can be and the complete negligence from @Emirates airline.

‘I recently flew with Emirates Airline where I was given a Cashew Nut. I made my flight attendant aware of my nut allergy twice before being given a chicken curry. 

‘I wasn’t given a menu to chose from, instead I was asked directly if I wanted chicken or fish. I opted for the chicken. 

‘When I asked for the chicken I told the air-host that I’m severely allergic to all nuts. I was then told that there was no nuts in the chicken curry. 

‘When I received the meal I asked the same flight attendant again to make sure, and again was told that it does not have nuts included. 

‘Trusting my flight attendant I began to eat the chicken curry. Immediately my throat closed up and breathing became extremely difficult.’

The situation immediately escalated, as Jack continued: ‘I told a flight attendant I couldn’t breathe and if there was nuts in the food. 

‘I was told that there were no nuts in the chicken curry AGAIN. It was only when my friend demanded to see the food menu for the first time did I realise it was a ‘Creamy Cashew Nut chicken Curry’.

‘I told the flight supervisor ‘‘If you don’t land this plane soon, I will die on this plane’’. This then lead to the pilot speeding up the journey.

‘Once we landed I was rushed into Dubai airport Hospital where I continued treatment.’


Jack then asked: ‘What needs to happen for Airlines to take food allergies seriously??’ as he slammed Emirates for their negligence. 

‘@Emirates it is not good enough. I’m lucky to be able to have a platform to make as many people aware of your complete negligence.
