CLASSIC violinist superstar Nicola Benedetti was forced to rehearse in an airport toilet after her flight was delayed.

The Scottish musician, from West Kilbride, shared the bathroom selfie with her 17,000 Twitter fans yesterday (fri).

Looking dressed down in a grey hoodie, the usually glamorous 27-year-old, wrote: “3 hour flight delay – airport bathroom will do for now.”

Benedetti’s fans tried to cheer up the violinist. One, Carl Wright, said: “Just goes to show there is beauty to be found in the most unlikely of locations.”

Inverclyde councillor, Christopher McEleny, was also encouraging, writing: “Great autistics in the airport bathroom!”

Fellow Scots musician, Julie Fowlis, wrote: “poor thing! I have definitely had a tune-up in a toilet before…sometimes it’s the only place you can get..”
