The actor has been Down Under for several weeks after shooting scenes for The Hobbit movie in New Zealand, and he started his 24-hour flight home to England on Thursday (03Nov11).
However, Fry's plane was grounded at a Dubai airport hours into the flight after an engine shut down.
In a post on his Twitter.com page, he wrote, ""B**ger. Forced to land in Dubai. An engine has decided not to play.""
After several hours, the passengers were removed from the plane and transported to the airport terminal, but Fry realised he had left his wallet onboard the aircraft.
He added, ""Oh Jesus a**emothering f**k. I've left my wallet on the s**ding plane. Hell's teeth this really isn't my day. Will not leave without it.
""I've left my wallet on the plane - all my ID cards, money passes etc. I'm going to be siting here for ever and ever and ever. It's at times like this a man considers taking up smoking again. Possibly with heroin, crack and MDMA mixed in & all washed down with vodka.""
