Netflix star and ex-Attorney General's son arrested over flight rampage and slurred: 'Do you know who my mum is?'

A PLAYBOY Netflix star and son of a former Attorney General was arrested as part of a boozed up group’s rampage on a passenger jet and slurred: “Do you know who my mum is?”

Matthew Mawhinney, whose mum is Commonwealth Secretary-General Baroness Scotland, was among TV stars arrested by eight police officers after an in-flight bust-up.


Three cast members of dating show Too Hot to Handle – Netflix’s version of Love Island – were escorted off the British Airways jet on touchdown at Heathrow.

They were arrested, taken into custody, and later released pending police enquiries.

Pin-up Matthew – whose mum Lady Scotland was Attorney General under then Prime Minister Gordon Brown between 2007 and 2010 –  was alleged to have been part of the group.

The hunk, whose dad Richard is a barrister and brother of former Tory chairman Brian Wawhinney, was confronted by crew over the group’s behaviour.

But the star was overheard bragging about his famous mum.

It is alleged that he was part of a group who had been knocking back alcohol following filming in the Caribbean paradise of the Turks and Caicos Islands before a flight to Miami, and a four-hour wait for the BA jet.

'RUNNING AMOK'

They then boarded Flight BA208 to Heathrow – and pandemonium ensued as they continued to sink drinks among fellow passengers in the World Traveller cabin.

The group were allegedly spotted “running amok”, calling BA stewardesses “c****”, doing press-ups in the galley, ignoring Covid rules, and slamming and banging the toilet doors.

Their behaviour led to the Captain being  called from the cockpit, and they were banned from any further alcohol.

A passenger witness told The Sun: “The  group were drunk and behaved in an abhorrent fashion at 30,000ft.

“Due to Covid rules passengers are asked to stay in their seats and wear masks, but the group refused.

“When Matthew Mawhinney was told to calm down he slurred: “Do you know who my Mum is?”

'HUMILIATING'

“It was humiliating.”

The group was slamming toilet doors and  disturbing  other passengers.”

The BA Captain radioed ahead for police to meet the flight on landing at Heathrow at 10.45am on Sunday.

The disgraced cast members had ‘final warning’ letters signed by the Captain handed to them and read out during the flight.

The letter states: “We have already warned you about your unacceptable behaviour and requested you to moderate it.

"It can be a criminal offence under the UK Public Order Act 1986 to behave in a threatening, abusive, insulting or disorderly way.

“Please now calm down and act in a sensible manner so that our staff can deal with your problem.”

Later BA staff alerted cops to meet the plane.


The group could now face a ban from flying with BA.

Some of the show’s production crew travelled back on the same turbulent flight – in the more luxurious Traveller Plus cabin – and were not involved in the behaviour, witnesses said.

The yobbish group had filmed the second series of Too Hot to Handle, which is due to be screened later this year. 

The first series was a hit as couples competed to find love – without getting physical. The winners at the end of the four-week show, filmed at a beach resort, walk away with $100,000.

Contestant Matthew was dating Tina Stinnes, who turned heads in the second season of Love Island, with the couple spotted embracing in Antigua in 2019.

TOO HOT TO HANDLE

The Made In Chelsea star, who used to go out with Pippa Middleton’s brother-in-law Spencer Matthews, told The Sun of her romance with Matthew: “We’ve been going out for a while. It’s going really well. So far, so good.”.

Matthew was forced to step in after then Manchester United star Marouane Fellaini sent private Instagram messages to Tina while they were dating.

He warned the Red Devil off by uploading screenshots, and blasted: “Fellaini get out of my girlfriend’s DMs.”

Matthew has shown off his swanky lifestyle, mixing it with well-heeled celebs, on Instagram. But last night he hastily deleted his public account.

He’s shared pictures of him at Buckingham Palace, Marlborough House in Pall Mall, a party at St James’s Palace in the presence of Princess Alexandra and meeting former US President Bill Clinton.

The beefcake’s mother Patricia Scotland, 65, is the sixth Secretary-General of the Commonwealth of Nations. She was elected in 2015 and is the first woman to hold the post.

She was elevated to the House of Lords in 1997 and as a Labour politician also served as Advocate General for Northern Ireland.

Scotland Yard told The Sun last night: “At around 1030hrs on Sunday, 7 February, three passengers were detained upon arrival at Heathrow Airport.

The three had travelled to London from Miami.

“Prior to the arrival of the aircraft at Heathrow, airline crew had alerted police to disruptive behaviour on board the flight.

“The three people – two males and a female – were arrested on suspicion of being disruptive on board an aircraft, contrary to the Air Navigation Order 2016.

“All three were taken into police custody and later released under investigation.”

British Airways told The Sun: “Disruptive or abusive behaviour is never tolerated and the appropriate action will always be taken. “

Netflix, and the individual cast members concerned, refused to comment.
