A bearded bouncer who stands tall at a mighty 6ft 3in managed to fly to Germany using the passport of his petite and pregnant girlfriend.
Josh Reed, 21, managed to pick up Sophie Watkins’ passport when he left home for a lads football weekend in Dortmund - but unbelievably he made it through security at Stansted Airport.
Even more incredibly, Josh - who only noticed he had the wrong passport once he was on the Ryanair plane - made it onto the flight without being questioned.
He told Lad Bible: “I was just completely shocked at how the hell I look like a small brunette female.
“It’s terrible that it wasn’t noticed at all.”

Having landed in Germany, Josh managed to make it through security using just his driving license.
Girlfriend Sophie - who stands at 5ft 2in - then couriered his passport to him while he was away.
Ryanair said they were doing their utmost to make sure this kind of thing doesn’t happen again.
A spokesperson said: “Our handling agent at the boarding gate mistakenly failed to check the passport of this passenger, and Swissport have assured us that appropriate steps will be taken to prevent a recurrence.
However, it is Mr Reed’s primary responsibility to ensure that he is travelling on his valid passport in compliance with Ryanair’s terms and conditions.”
