Boyband singer, James McElvar, in his attempt to avoid excess luggage fee passed out on board an easyJet flight after wearing 12 layers of clothes so he didn't have to pay a £45 sub-charge.

James thought he was having a heart attack when he lost consciousness at 37,000 feet flying from London to Glasgow.

Little did he know he'd passed out from heat exhaustion having dressed himself in six t-shirts, four jumpers, three pairs of jeans, two pairs of jogging bottoms, a pair of jackets and two hats.

The 19-year-old entertainer was told he was carrying too much luggage,a rucksack and small suitcase when he reached the gate at Stansted Airport.

His only options were to fork out almost £50 for excess baggage, bin his threads, or wear them all.

James said: 'The woman told me either one of my bags went in the hold or we weren't getting on. 'The rest of the band had gone through so I couldn't give them any of my clothes.'

"I felt it was my only option to put on everything", James told MailOnline.

"It was impossible to walk, I could barely get on the plane. I wanted to take them all off as soon as I got to my seat - beside which was a spare seat that I could have sat one of my bags on - but was told I had to wait until we were up in the air".

One band mate revealed, James started undressing as the plane was taking off, but his body temperature had already soared.

He was treated by an off-duty paramedic who was fortunately on the same flight as he and his Rewind band mates.
