Lily Allen suffers minor burns in 'terrifying' gas explosion

LILY Allen has suffered "minor burns" in a "terrifying" gas explosion.

The 30-year-old singer took to her Instagram account on Saturday night to reveal she'd been involved in an accident while staying in a caravan near the Glastonbury music festival site in Somerset, south west England.   


Alongside a close-up photograph of her face, she wrote: "I was in a gas explosion in my caravan today and I have minor burns and synged my eyelashes considerably. it was absolutely terrifying and I wouldn't want anyone to go through anything similar. please be SO careful using gas stoves at anytime but especially during festival season when ones reaction times may be a little off. Feeling very grateful to be alive. Happy camping (sic)."

The 'Hard Out Here' hitmaker - who has been spending a lot of time in Los Angeles working on new music - appeared to have decided to travel to the popular festival a few days early before disaster struck.

Lily - who has daughters Ethel and Marnie with husband Sam Cooper - posted a photo of the view of the Worthy Farm site from her caravan the day before the gas explosion took place alongside the caption "#glastonbury2015".
