Man accidentally plays Titanic music on plane not realising he's sat next to Kate Winslet

People have been left in stitches after a TikToker accidentally played the Titanic theme tune while sitting next to Kate Winslet.
Plane journeys are awkward enough as it is.
You're stuck in a small, stuffy cabin surrounded by strangers. And heaven forbid you should forget to connect your headphones to your phone and end up blaring music out.
And for one TikToker, the nightmare only started there.
It's an unfortunate series of events indeed. Prepare to wince in near-physical pain from the second-hand embarrassment.
Actor and digital creator, Chris Olsen, took to TikTok in a fluster, admitting to followers he needs to 'start paying more attention to [his] surroundings' because he 'cannot keep embarrassing [himself] like this'.
Chris explained: "Today I was on a flight [...] and I see my ticket is for the third row but for some reason I get to the second row and I'm like great this is it.
"There's one woman who is already in the window seat and the middle seat between us is empty. Now at this point I'm ready to listen to some music, settle in and who is on my mind but Celine Dion. She canceled her tour and so they were playing a bunch of her songs on the news.
"[...] What I don't realise is that my AirPods are not yet connected so Celine starts playing out loud. I'm just kind of like skipping through her top hits at this moment like 'It's All Coming Back to Me Now' plays for a second, 'I Surrender' plays for a second, 'My Heart Will Go On' plays for a little bit and this is all happening out loud but I don't realise it."
And there was another major embarrassing moment the TikToker had still yet to experience.
As soon as he realised he was playing his music out loud, Chris quickly paused the music, reassuring himself: "None of it played for that long."
Chris later clocked he was in the wrong seat after a lady in the window seat next to him kept looking over and a flight attendant asked what seat number was on his boarding pass.
And if you think that's awkward, it gets even worse. Yes, EVEN WORSE.
Chris then moved to row three, but as he was getting up and apologising to the woman in the window seat, he looked at her face and realised that she 'looks familiar'.
After 'racking his brain' over whether he'd met her before or 'something like that,' after spotting a highlighted script in her belongings, he soon realised the woman may be an actor.
And not just any actor, but Oscar Winner Kate Winslet, star of Titanic, of which the theme tune is Celine Dion's 'My Heart Will Go On'.
And followers have flooded to Chris' post in absolute fits of laughter over his experience.
One TikToker said: "Welcome to today’s segment of 'Scenes From Our Worst Nightmares'."
"She was like is this dude waiting for me to say 'I’ll never let go Jack'?!?!?" another wrote.
A third added: "Screaming, crying, throwing up."
And a final resolved: "This was so chaotic and amazing. Only you Chris."
