SINGER Lily Allen has said she put on two stone while touring North America because of all the chicken wings she ate.
Lily, 33, also “grew a beard” after falling ill on the 21-date tour.
She told ITV’s This Morning: “I think I put on two stone in America. I’ve grown a beard because of the hormones from all the chicken wings I was eating.
“No, I actually got ill and I had to take steroids. It was either chicken related or steroid related. I haven’t figured it out yet.”
Asked by This Morning host Eamonn Holmes what she does not like about “being Lily Allen”, she admitted that, while she enjoys writing and performing, she does not like the public scrutiny that comes with being famous.

She said: “I love writing songs and I love being on stage and performing them, and I love that people seemingly get something out of my contributions, so I really like all of that.
“I don’t like the negative stuff, I’m not going to lie. I don’t like it. I’m a fighter and when I’m backed into a corner I tend to lash out. Some people are better at dealing with it than others. I’m not very good at it.”
