Three stars from the ABC comedy Modern Family got stuck in a lift in Kansas City for about an hour, delaying their appearance at a charity benefit.

Julie Bowen, Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Eric Stonestreet were in town for a fundraiser for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Kansas City. Stonestreet grew up in Kansas City.

The Kansas City Star reported that the three actors were trapped in a lift with about a dozen other people at the Sheraton Kansas City Hotel at the Crown Centre, where they were headlining the fundraiser.

Crews from the Kansas City Fire Department freed the group at about 10pm, an hour after they were scheduled to appear.

When they finally took to the stage, the actors praised and thanked the fire department.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Capricorn:

Your dry humour will be very popular. It's always difficult bringing a large group of people together. Everybody feels like they are walking on eggshells. After cracking a few jokes, you'll put the group at ease. Resist the temptation to make fun of relatives, especially the more sensitive members of the group. Nobody likes feeling singled out. Watching a light hearted comedy can also be a great way to generate a festive atmosphere. This is a time when people can put their differences aside.More
