Footage posted on social media shows a flight attendant open the toilet door on the plane, which was on the way to Ibiza from Luton.

A number of passengers started cheering and shouting in horror as the flight attendant opened the door, with the couple looking flustered.

The flight attendant then turned around, putting his hand over his mouth in horror.
