Alexa Chung has suffered burns from a new "trendy toothpaste".
The British TV presenter blistered the area around her mouth after not rinsing properly when was cleaning her teeth on a recent trip to New York.
She said: "I hate that I have blisters round the right corner of my mouth from where I brushed my teeth using a trendy old-fashioned toothpaste I got in a trendy old-fashioned New York hotel, and then was so tired I didn't wipe my mouth properly, dribbled all night long and subsequently burnt my own face with my toxic saliva."
The former model - who was named Best Dressed at the NME Awards this week - also revealed she is secretly obsessed with rapper Dr. Dre and watches him on the internet every day.
The 24-year-old broadcaster explained: "I hate that I know most lyrics to Robbie Williams songs off by heart, but very few by Dr. Dre, even though I look up Dre on YouTube daily to practice 'Still Dre' so that I can wow people at karaoke. I'm sure/hope I had abandoned casting my eye over Robbie's CD cases by the age of 14."
