Calvin Harris Brings This Unusual Item on Flights to Prevent Jet Lag: ‘I’m Surprised They Get Through Security’

Calvin Harris has cracked — kind of.

The Scottish producer was co-hosting the Zoe Ball Breakfast Show on BBC Radio 2 on Monday morning (March 4) when he revealed the unusual liquid that helps him stave off jet lag.

“I was on a British Airways flight only a couple of weeks ago, and the air hostess told me she’d never seen anybody crack eggs and pour them into their mouth in their seat before,” Harris told Bell. “But that was me. That’s what I do.”

He went on to say that when he gets on a flight, he retrieves the six eggs he’s stashed in his carry-on bag, then consume the yolks. “I like to get rid of the white, so I just do the raw yolk,” he continued. “I find it gets rid of the jet lag.”

Harris also revealed that there’s no special trick to getting a half-dozen eggs on a commercial flight. “You just stick them in your bag,” he said. “I’m surprised they get through security because for me, that’s liquid. But it’s never, ever been flagged.”

According to Medicine News Today, egg yolks are a bit of a “miracle” cure, as they’re dense with vitamins, protein and may help reduce blood pressure, boost the immune system and reduce vision problems.

It’s been a big few days for Harris, as over the weekend the producer won the 2024 Brit Award for best dance act, beating Fred again.., Romy, Becky Hill and Barry Can’t Swim. Harris was also nominated for best pop act and song of the year for his 2023 trance anthem “Miracle” with Ellie Goulding, with whom he performed at the ceremony.

“First of all, I want to dedicate this award to Danny Rampling’s Love Groove dance party,” Harris said in his acceptance speech, referencing the ’90s dance compilation series, then went on to say: “I want to thank Ellie Goulding, wherever she is. Ellie, I couldn’t be on this stage this year without you. What you brought to ‘Miracle’ was absolutely unbelievable. I couldn’t have done it with anybody else in this room, so thank you.”

Harris also thanked the songwriter BURNS, a frequent collaborator who worked on “Miracle,” as well as his wife, BBC Radio 1 presenter Vick Hope.
