At the start of the footage, she appears to laugh as the plane starts to vibrate.

However, her laughter is cut short when the plane jolts heavily, causing her to spill the contents of her wine glass, splashing onto the ceiling as people are screaming in terror.

She said the turbulence struck two hours after takeoff of what was supposed to be an eight-hour flight and just as lunch was being served, it left food scattered all over the aircraft.

Diana also claimed some passengers were injured and the plane crew provided first aid before landing.

She said among the injured was a newborn baby who had flown out of its parent's arms and hit the ceiling prompting the captain to ask for a doctor to help the child.

The influencer added: "It only lasted a few seconds but it was enough to leave some people injured and the crew provided first aid before landing."

She had boarded the plane operated by TAAG Angolan Airlines after it made a stopover in Luanda before she was due to continue to Portugal.

TAAG Angolan Airlines have been contacted by the Daily Star for a comment.
