FUMING Caprice today vented her frustration at being stuck in a queue at a petrol pump.
Caprice filmed chaotic scenes at a petrol station near Peterborough earlier and raged "what is going on?" as the fuel shortage sparked panic-buying across the country the UK.
The model, 49, said she was in danger of missing an appearance on Ideal TV, which would see her plug her Caprice Home range.
She said: "I’ve been sitting here for fifteen minutes now waiting to get petrol. Finally I’m at the front.
"But look at this… and the queue back there. What is going on? Well, we know exactly what’s going on.
"This is crazy, I’m doing my show on Ideal with my Caprice Home, so exciting. It’s a live show, I hope I make it."
Caprice let out two squeals of frustration, before calling on prime minister Boris Johnson and mayor of London Sadiq Khan to fix the crisis.
She said: "#thanksborisjohnson queuing for petrol yesterday … almost missed my show and had to pay additional £20 to fill my tank… prices are so inflated it is ridiculous…now today many petrol stations are completely out of gas… get your bikes out folks!!…
"maybe those millions of our hard earned money that @sadiq used on bike lanes will be relevant 😂😂😂🤨🤨😂love u everyone 😀😀😀😀😀😘😘😘😘😘#letsgoelectric is the way forward"
Police have been forced to marshal motorists after they raced to forecourts to fill their tanks up.
Selfish drivers have started filling up jerry cans with fuel after queuing from the early hours of this morning.
The government has now urged drivers to "carry on as normal" amid the chaotic scenes.
And hundreds of petrol stations are now planning to impose a £30 fuel cap per driver to ensure everyone has a “fair chance to refuel”.
The EG Group, which has 341 petrol stations in the UK, confirmed the emergency services and lorry drivers would not be affected.
A spokesperson said: “Due to the current unprecedented customer demand for fuel and associated supply challenges we have taken the decision to introduce a limit of £30 per customer on all of our grades of fuel.
"This excludes HGV drivers and emergency services due to their vital role at this time. “This is a company decision to ensure all our customers have a fair chance to refuel and to enable our sites to carry on running smoothly.
"We kindly ask everyone visiting our sites to treat our colleagues, supply chain partners and customers with respect during these very challenging times."
