Lorraine in chaos as guest forced to miss appearance after being stranded abroad

Ranvir reveals Lorraine guest stuck in Budapest

Ranvir Singh, who was hosting Lorraine on Tuesday morning, was left without one of her guests as they were still stuck at Budapest airport.

Presenter Radzi Chinyanganya was scheduled to appear on the ITV programme to discuss his new book, but the air traffic control issues from Monday prevented him from doing so.

Reporting from a hotel room in the Hungarian capital, Radzi said: “Fingers crossed I’ll get to fly out tomorrow, possibly on Thursday.

“I was actually flying back early to talk to you about my brand new book which I am so excited about.

“Fingers crossed I will get to see you very soon and we will do it in the future.

“Ranvir, I will see you really soon,” the author concluded via video link.

Ranvir noted the 35-year-old’s “good camera work” and exclaimed she was looking forward to seeing him when he gets back to the UK.

“And good luck to everyone who has been caught up in it today,” she added.

The former Blue Peter presenter was one of the thousands of passengers impacted by the UK’s air control system’s “technical fault” which happened on Monday morning.

The problem was “identified and remedied” at about 3.30pm on Monday – but the disruption is ongoing.

The National Air Traffic Controllers said in a statement: “We are now working closely with airlines and airports to manage the flights affected as efficiently as possible.

“Our engineers will be carefully monitoring the system’s performance as we return to normal operations.”

The August bank holiday is “one of the busiest days of the year” for flying.

Aviation analysts fear the disruption could have a knock-on effect well into this week, with a backlog of passengers trying to get home.

Juliet Kennedy, National Air Traffic Services operations director, warned “it will take some time for flights to return to normal”.

Lorraine airs on weekdays at 9am on ITV and ITVX.
