I would be surprised if he manages to get through with an out of date passport. My PIL got stopped at the airport and were not allowed to travel with an expired passport.

Does he not have french ID card he can use instead? Alternatively, surely he could get a new passport in France at some point in the next month?

How out of date is it?

Have you rung the french embassy where you are now? What do they say?

You will not be able to enter England at all on any out of date passport.

Where in Spain are you? Can you pop over the border?

It takes less than 2 weeks to renew a UK passport.

He can use his French ID card instead.
