Thinking of lighting your gas BBQ? Don't follow the lead of Lily Allen

04/08/2010 If you're thinking of lighting your gas BBQ this weekend make sure you're careful about where you leave those all important BBQ tools.

As songstress Lily Allen recently discovered, not putting utensils properly away can lead to painful consequences.

Writing on her Twitter account last weekend, the pop singer revealed that when leaving a birthday party recently she jumped into her car and started the engine before noticing she was sitting on a BBQ skewer.

Allen's post on the microblogging website read: "Who goes to an 18-year-old's birthday BBQ and skewers themselves in the a*** on the way?

"Note to self - don't leave wayward tetanus ridden skewers on the car seat. Bleeding." the star added ? which is a lesson for all those planning on using their gas BBQ in the near future!

The singer, whose big hits include Smile and Not Fair, is well known for her Twitter antics and currently has more than two million followers on the social networking site.ADNFCR-3488-ID-19919125-ADNFCR
