The 42-year-old is also reported to have torn out her hair extensions during the heated exchange with eight armed police officers.

After attempting to storm off during questioning, she was arrested and taken to a West London police station before later being released without charge.

A Met Police spokesman said: “Police at Heathrow Terminal 5 were made aware of disturbance in the forecourt of the building at approximately 15.20hrs on Saturday, 20 December.

“Officers arrived at the scene and arrested a 42 -year-old woman.

“She was taken to a west London police station and subsequently accepted a caution under section 5 of the Public Order Act 1986.”

Tara, who is now understood to have flown to the exclusive ski resort of Klosters in Switzerland to celebrate her 43rd birthday, said a panic attack triggered her behaviour.

“I wasn’t drunk, there was no disorderly. I was cautioned, I saw a doctor, they were nice to me,” she later told The Sun.

It’s not the first time TPT has got herself into hot water at an airport.

In March last year she was stopped by security at Zurich airport over the pistol-shaped high heels in her luggage.
