Sir Paul McCartney was stuck on a Eurostar train in France for six hours on Monday night after a power failure, according to a U.K. report.
The Beatles legend and his wife Nancy Shevell had traveled to the country’s capital Paris to see the star’s daughter Stella put on a fashion show, and they were on their way back to London when their train ground to a halt.

Snow had caused an overhead power cable to collapse, and as a result, the trio was left stranded, but the veteran singer helped boost fellow passengers’ spirits.

A source tells Britain’s Daily Mirror, “It was a pretty hideous situation but Sir Paul was on fine form. He had a laugh and a joke as he chatted with the passengers in his cabin and he signed dozens of autographs.

“He was more than happy to muck in and try to keep everyone’s spirits up despite the vile conditions. He’s not prone to diva tantrums. He understands that these things can happen.”

McCartney wasn’t the only star caught up in the travel chaos – model Laura Bailey took to Twitter to announce, “Love affair with Eurostar officially over”, while designer Henry Holland ranted: “Eurostar disaster”.
