VIRGIN tycoon SIR Richard Branson once had sex on a plane with a complete stranger.

The star of reality TV show THE REBEL BILLIONAIRE was just 18 when he got passionate with the passenger sitting next to him in the economy class section.

Their brief encounter ended when they landed and he discovered she had a boyfriend.

Branson recalls, "I was about 18-years-old and it was with somebody I met on the plane going to Los Angeles.

"We were sitting in economy, and we had a blanket and one thing led to another. I remember her getting off the plane and rushing into the arms of her husband or boyfriend."
