Exclamation Expired brit passport traveling to Uk

I am a permanent resident alien in the US , my British passport has expired but I want to travel to Uk for my birthday ( suddenly homesick). Can I travel into Uk and then renew my passport when I am there.? This had occurred when my Mum died but I was allowed because it was an emergency , the airline and customs didnt check the letter I had from the British embassy. Has anyone recently done this and did you have any problems ?
Thanks

Hi AtxBrit,

Welcome to BE.

The best place to ask your question would be in our USA forum. I know this subject has come up before, so also give the search function a try here and it should pull up some recent threads about this.

Here's a one such thread to start you off: http://britishexpats.com/forum/showthread.php?t=811528

If you get stuck on anything please don't hesitate to give me a shout.

Will the US authorities let you leave on an expired passport ? Will the airline agree to let you board ?
