Los Angeles - Paris Hilton was reportedly in on the plane crash prank, it has been claimed.

The Egyptian company behind TV show Ramex in Control - which filmed the heiress as she screamed and cried when she thought the aircraft giving her an aerial tour of Dubai was about to crash - circulated a document detailing the gag to a number of US celebrities in March, offering them around a million dollars to participate.

According to TMZ, the document said: "We will act as if something is going wrong and ask all passengers to jump off the plane!!! Of course everyone will panic, we'll be having skydivers in disguise with us on board.

"We will monitor the funny reactions from our celebrity guest when they fear jumping off the plane."

The document went on to claim the Dubai authorities were involved in the stunt as well.

It continued: "Dubai official authorities are monitoring this show and providing us with security. If you want to make sure, you can contact the office of crown prince of Dubai, his majesty Hamdan bin Rashid Al Maktoum. He himself will be supervising the progress of the project."

Despite the claims, the 34-year-old socialite said she found the stunt "terrifying", and she thought the company went "too far" with the prank.

She said on said: "It was terrifying, I've never been in a plane that was about to go down...

"I think they went a little too far with their prank. There are things that are funny but that was not funny at all."

It has been reported that Paris is planning to sue those behind the prank for "emotional distress".
