Katie Hopkins under fire after she went maskless on flight from LA to London

The Apprentice's Katie Hopkins has been pictured on a long haul flight without wearing a face mask.

Katie left other passengers on board the British Airways flight in a state of rage as she made her way to her seat in Business Class during the trans-Atlantic journey from Los Angeles to London Heathrow earlier this week.

The mum-of-three had been in America to appear as a guest at political rallies, supporting Donald Trump who is hoping to be re-elected as the President next week.

In a short clip obtained by Mirror Online, the 45-year-old was also seen in Heathrow airport without a facial covering.

Some passengers claim that Katie was without her mask for the duration of the flight.

Speaking to the publication, a passenger who wished to remain anonymous said: "She went through the whole flight without wearing a mask. It was ridiculous and not a flight you wanted to be on.

"She didn't wear a mask on the flight and wandered through Heathrow without one on as well."

Heathrow Airport's website reads that "all passengers aged 11 and older are required to wear face coverings at all time within our terminal buildings."

Face coverings have been made mandatory on public transport, such as airliners since June but people are allowed to change them every four hours.

You are also allowed to remove them in order to eat and drink during journeys.

A statement released by British Airways on the official guidelines states: "We require you to wear a face mask at all times. As a guide they last up to four hours, so bring enough for the duration of your trip."

The Celebrity Big Brother star has been vocal about her views on facial coverings and the coronavirus, often documenting them on her Instagram Grid.

After Sainsbury's said they would not be challenging shoppers going into stores as "they may have a reason not to wear a mask".

Katie hailed the supermarket chain "little legends".

Daily Star Online has approached Katie Hopkins for comment.
