Amelle Berrabah's drunken drop

Sugababes singer Amelle Berrabah has confessed she "went flying" down some stairs once after drinking too much alcohol.

Sugababes singer Amelle Berrabah has confessed she "went flying" down some stairs once after drinking too much alcohol.

The Sugababes singer admits she lost her balance after drinking too much alcohol and trying to balance on towering high heels.

She said: "I fell down some stairs once when I was drunk. I was smiling away and then I just pounded down right to the bottom. I was wearing heels and I missed a step and I literally went flying.

"It was really embarrassing, everyone was trying to help me, but I was saying, 'Don't touch me! I'm fine.'

"But I had a laugh about it afterwards. You can't take things too seriously."

Amelle is not the only star to have embarrassed themselves while drunk.

Lily Allen was reportedly thrown off Formula One boss Flavio Briatore's yacht in France last summer.

Lily, who appeared to be intoxicated, jumped overboard the vessel but had to be dragged out of the sea by crew members who feared she was drowning.

When she was back on board, embarrassed Flavio made her cover up before asking her to leave.
