Lily Allen has revealed that her two young daughters have been left without Christmas presents following a payment card blunder on her part.

The 32-year-old singer has confessed that she didn’t realise that her card had expired, meaning that all of her online purchases were unable to be completed, and she didn’t realise until last night [23 December].

Taking to her popular Twitter page, Lily shared a screenshot of her Amazon order history, which contained warning messages that she needs to update her payment method.

Lily captioned the picture with: “F****** . When your card expires and you don’t check your emails.”

The gifts included four Barbie doll sets for her daughters, six-year-old Ethel and four-year-old Marnie, including a beauty table and doll house.

Fans quickly inundated Lily with messages of support and advice, with one suggesting that she tell her daughters that Santa “forgot” the belated presents and will drop them off at a later date.

Present-gate is just the latest drama that Lily has faced this festive season, with the star previously sparking controversy when she claimed that she had been left “homeless” after lodgers in her £1.5million North London home told her that they wouldn’t move out in time.

Lily claimed that the Italian tenants were pleading diplomatic immunity to avoid being evicted, tweeting in a now-deleted post: “Meant to be moving back into my flat this week, but my tenants just dropped that they can’t find anywhere to go up to their standards.

“Then they said they’re diplomats and have diplomatic immunity and there’s nothing I can do about it. So, who fancies a family of 3 for Xmas? [sic]”

Lily was ridiculed online for her “first world problem”, with one of the tenants, Maria, later denying that her family had refused to move out.
