Lily Allen was caught in a gas explosion when she was in a campervan and the stove exploded.

The 30-year-old singer is attending Glastonbury festival where she has been keeping her fans up to date of her antics through her social media pages.

The mum of two posted a photo of her face to Instagram, showing minor burns and singed eyelashes. She urged her fellow festival goers to be extra careful, to avoid the same terrifying experience.

“I was in a gas explosion in my caravan today and I synged my eyelashes considerably,” the Not Fair singer explained.


“It was absolutely terrifying and I wouldn’t want anyone to go through anything similar,” she continued. “Please be SO careful using gas stoves at anytime but especially during festival season when ones reaction times may be a little off.”

Thankfully Lily’s injuries weren’t any more serious. As she said, “Feeling very grateful to be alive.”
