A British traveller was refused entry and deported from Thailand after ripping pages from passport to use as toilet paper when she was drunk, ITV Report online reported on Wednesday.
Faye Wilson was forced to turn back at a Thai airport and was escorted all the way back to the United Kingdom by a security guard after they spotted the missing pages.
The ITV report quoted her as telling Thai immigration official that she had been too mortified to reveal the truth and tried to claim she had "lost" them - but the sceptical officers promptly deported her.
According to the online report, she said she and her friends were walking from one bar to the next and we must have been desperate for a wee and obviously didn't have any toilet roll,” she said.
"We decided it would be a good idea to use my passport, which is obviously really stupid.
"It was maybe two or three pages. I was a bit drunk so didn't even think about the consequences."
Thai immigration just opened my passport and started looking through it, and asked 'what's happened here'?" the 28-year-old hairdresser said.
"I just said that I had lost the pages because I was too embarrassed to explain the real reason. Before I could explain more, they had deported me back to Dubai and then to Glasgow and confiscated my documents.
She had been planning on spending a month in Thailand before moving on to work for a year in Australia.
