A teenager looked like she'd self-tanned in ''Nutella'' after falling asleep with the lotion on.

Fake tan fail

Fake tan fail

Alicia Bettsworth, 18, put three layers of St Moriz ultra-dark fake tan all over herself to try and get the perfect beach body look, but got a shock when she opened her Snapchat and her face resembled the colour of the chocolate spread.

The mother from Crawley, West Sussex claims she couldn't leave the house for a whole week because of the tanning fail.

She told the MailOnline: ''When I woke up the next day and saw what colour I was I thought 'what the hell have I done?'

''Once I got over the shock I started laughing and thought it was hilarious. I looked like I'd bathed in Nutella.

''My little girl looked a bit confused at first and then she burst into tears - she was probably a bit scared.''

Alicia said she ended up having a nice shade once it had faded a bit.

She added: ''I just stayed indoors and hid from the world. I tried to get it off in the shower it wouldn't go any lighter.

''It was only a week later that I got a really nice tan from it, but in the meantime I just didn't go out.''
