Drunk Grand Designs star, 54, urinated on British Airways passenger and his child’s teddy bear and drinks bottle on packed eight-hour flight from Barbados to Heathrow
- Adam Purchase, 54, appeared on Grand Designs in 2011 but was in court today
- He admitted drunkenly entering an aircraft and causing damage of £1,001
A stonemason who appeared on TV’s Grand Designs urinated on a passenger on a British Airways flight after becoming ‘incoherent’ from sinking rum and wine.
Drunk Adam Purchase, 54, relieved himself on victim Thomas Homphrey’s shoes and socks and also hit his child’s teddy bear and drinks bottle with his jet stream.
The January flight from Barbados to Heathrow was also damaged to the tune of £1,001 from Purchase’s renegade plane pee.
Mr Homphrey only became aware of the unfolding toilet nightmare after his wife screamed ‘oh my God he’s peeing everywhere’.
The rogue relieving of himself happened in front of the victim’s two children as well as his own pair of sons.

According to The Sun, prosecutor Ashleigh Ettiene told Uxbridge magistrates’ court: ‘Mr Purchase became drunk and incoherent.
‘At 11pm the complainant Mr Homphrey was awoken by his wife shouting ‘oh my God he’s peeing everywhere’.
‘Urine was splashing on his legs and feet. Mr Purchase had his genitalia out and was urinating.
‘It was a packed aircraft. There were children present, including his own.
Purchase appeared on Grand Designs 12 years ago in 2011 but rans out of money for the project
‘Mr Purchase has been described as being drunk and urinating liberally, coming across as reckless and causing damage to the aircraft.’
Purchase appeared on Grand Designs 12 years ago in 2011 and had attempted to transform an old engine house into a family home.
In court his defence lawyer Bawita Dhanda said his client had endured no sleep in the three days before the flight and has been going through a divorce.
Because there was a delay at the airport for the flight home, Purchase had a couple of rum and ginger ales.
He chased them with a two small bottles of wine on the plane and said he had no memory of the trip.
Purchase admitted drunkenly entering an aircraft and causing damage of £1,001.
He is due to be sentenced at Isleworth crown court next month.
Chair of the bench Mr Zubair told Purchase: ‘An aircraft is a confined place up in the air, occupied by all ranges of people from small children or elderly people.
‘You were so drunk that you have no recollection of standing up, exposing your genitals and urinating all over the seats and another passenger.’
