The official said that a customs canine sniffed Heaton’s luggage when he arrived at Los Angeles International Airport last Saturday and officers found a small amount of cocaine.

The incident meant the 23-year-old Yorkshire-born star missed the premiere for the second season in Los Angeles on Thursday.

Heaton was refused entry at the airport and returned to London. He wasn’t arrested and no charges were filed.
