TOMMY Fury has been forced to splurge $300 on a FIVE HOUR Uber to the airport as he prepares to head home from America.
The 22-year-old boxer shared his excitement at finally reuniting with girlfriend Molly-Mae Hague upon his return to the UK, but faces an ordeal to get there.
The star had been in Las Vegas supporting his brother Tyson’s victorious fight against Deontay Wilder, where he had video-called Molly live from the ring.
Now that the fight is over, Tommy is returning to their Manchester penthouse – but has had to splash £230 on a 300-mile taxi ride first.
Taking to his Instagram Story, the former Love Island favourite shared a Boomerang video out of the window as he drove in the cab.
He wrote: “Little update – had to get an Uber from Las Vegas to LAX because all the flights were full and all the car rentals were hired so silly me. Always plan in advance, guys.”
Tommy added: “Then flying from Los Angeles to London. Can’t wait to see my girl @MollyMae miss you so much.”
The cross-state trip is an estimated five hour drive, with Tommy leaving Vegas in Nevada to get to California’s airport.
An estimate for the journey came to $309.40, but it could be more depending on which car Tommy chose – and if there was a surge due to the higher demand.
Tommy and Molly met on the 2019 series of Love Island, which they finished in second place.
They are the only couple from that series to still be loved up, and are looking to buy a house together having already discussed marriage and babies.
