Katy Perry's baked beans belly

Katy Perry loves her British comfort food

Katy Perry has revealed the unpleasant side effects of eating her favourite British food - baked beans on toast.

The Firework singer has just arrived in the country with her California Dreams Tour and has been enjoying tucking into all her favourite local nosh.

Katy is quoted by The Sun as saying: "I love coming to London so I can have baked beans on toast. They do bloat me and I'm afraid I'm going to go off like a firework, but I do love them."

The 26-year-old singer - who played the guitar as she gave an acoustic performance of The One That Got Away on The X Factor on Sunday - reportedly spent the first half of her concert at the O2 gig on Saturday night rubbing her belly.

But rather than blaming the beans, she joked she was pregnant to parody Beyonce's MTV Video Music Awards performance.

Katy, who married British comedian Russell Brand last year, has previously said baked beans are misunderstood in America.

When she arrived in the UK for her tour last week she couldn't wait to wolf down a pie with gravy and Yorkshire puddings.

She tweeted: "FINALLY! Beloved ENGLAND! 1st thing I did was stuff me gob (my mouth) w/some yorkshire puddings & meat pies from Silversmiths in Sheffield. Ah bless..."

She later added: "Yes, proper beans on toast... I've missed you."

This is an ideal time to make plans for the future. If you've been thinking about getting a better job, start getting the necessary training. It may take longer than you expect to reach your goal, but don't let that deter you. The best things in life involve an element of sacrifice. A reference from a powerful friend will help you get into an exclusive group or prestigious society. Your new friends and contacts might eventually be able to give you a helping hand professionally, but that's all in times to come.More
