Emmerdale star forced to sleep in bag outside airport after major travel mishap

An Emmerdale legend has been made to sleep outside in a sleeping bag after a major mishap.

Alexander Lincoln played the role of Jamie Tate, the estranged son of Home Farm icon Kim Tate, on the ITV soap from 2019 to 2021.

Starring in 300 episodes of the show, Jamie left the village after crashing his Jeep into a lake, but whilst the residents believe he died, Jamie emerged from the lake and fled.

Lincoln officially left the soap in favour of new roles and priorities, including playing the lead role in the LGBTQ+ sports film In From The Side.

But despite his success, the adventurous actor was left stranded in the Italian city of Pisa on Thursday night (September 14).

Posting to his Instagram stories, Alexander – who often shares snippets of treks around the world – updated his fans that his flight to Pisa was delayed.

Around an hour later, he posted a picture of himself giving a thumbs up to the camera looking a little less fresh.

Captioning the snap and putting on a brave face, he wrote: "Getting into Pisa at 1:30am with no hotel booking."

Around an hour later, Alexander shared another snap to his story – this time of his bedding outside the airport.

Writing "my room for the night – outside the airport", Lincoln showed he would be sleeping on the grass outside the airport terminal.

Covering himself in a sleeping bag, Alexander was left to rough it out for the night before he made it into the city early on Friday morning.

Later in the day, the Everything I Know About Love actor added a picture of the River Arno in the morning sunshine, showing that he eventually made it to the city.

He posted several other snaps of his adventures through the Italian city, including biking through the narrow streets and smiling happily to the camera.

In another snap, he announced a search for some focaccia, an Italian flatbread made from a base similar to pizza dough.

He was then ecstatic as he chomped on the bread and basked in the summer sun, before going for a hike in the Italian mountaints.
