Kirstie Allsopp has revealed that she somehow swallowed an AirPod over the weekend.
The Location, Location, Location star said she made the mistake of taking a daily vitamin supplement.

Taking to Twitter last night to share her mistake, the 50-year-old said: “In other news, I just swallowed an AirPod while lowering my vitamins.”
She added: “I don’t recommend it. I tried to cut it back without going to the hospital, but my throat really hurt. “

But fans can’t help but wonder how Kirstie accidentally ate the headphones, especially since they’re quite large.
One Twitter user wrote: “So confused. If this is true, why do you have an Airpod in your mouth??? “
“How could it happen?” said a second.
A third commented: “Damn, how big are those tablets you are using that you mistake them for an AirPod? I can’t even imagine putting it in my mouth considering their size, let alone swallowing it. Glad you solved it. “
“I literally lost my earphone and am now wondering if me or @KirstieMAllsopp will swallow it over the weekend,” joked one fan.
One curious follower asked: “Is it still working?” Kirstie replied: “Don’t know yet, but it still smells of sickness and I’m not sure about putting it in my ear. There is too much information that I know. “
After many social media users accused her of lying about the incident, Kirstie posted a photo of her AirPod amid her pills.
She captioned it: “See, not so pretty as some might say.”
Going on to explain how it happened, Kirstie said: ‘”AirPods in the bag, put the vitamins in the bag while getting the glass of water, put the vitamins in the mouth, take a sip of the water, go to the second batch, watch an AirPod in hand, checked bag, checked handbag.
“Realize that there is only one possible place to go.”
Hitting back at the haters, she added: “I did something wrong, which is also a warning.
“Yesterday I received some lovely funny replies. Today Twitter has gone crazy with really terrible comments. It’s amazing how people can get upset when they tell you they have compassionate political leanings. “
She added: “I really can’t get my head around the ‘you’re lying’ crowd. That would be a weird lie…. I like anyone who thinks I have enough imagination to lie about this. “
