Because she actually used the pages of her passport as toilet paper. NO, we are NOT making this up (we couldn't even if we tried).

The British traveller was turned back by border officers after they found missing pages, which she said she had used as toilet paper when drunk.

Faye Wilson was escorted back to the UK when guards found the missing pages and she had tried to claim she had “lost” them.

How did an idea like that pop into her head?

“We 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. 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.”

While she was promptly turned around and escorted back to the UK, she remains baffled by the decision as she claims to have used the passport up to eight times in the past five years since she ripped out the pages - without ever experiencing a problem

Faye, who is a hair-dresser by profession, was planning on spending a month in Thailand before working in Australia for a year. She will now apply for an emergency passport before she can fly back out to meet the friend she left behind in Thailand.

'My friend had to stay in Thailand while I was rushed back home. I felt like I was a criminal - people were looking at me wondering why a border official is someone sat with me the whole time. I don't know what a criminal looks like but I'm not one.'

PS: In case you were wondering, you shouldn't use pages of your passport as toilet paper. Never. No matter what.
