London: Nigella Lawson was banned from flying to the US after she confessed to using illegal drugs, it has been revealed.

Lawson went to Heathrow on Sunday morning to catch a British Airway flight to Los Angeles, but was told that she wouldn`t be allowed into the flight,reportedly.

Sources claimed that the TV chef didn`t seem to say much, but did not look happy and she had to turn around and leave.

The US asks people if they have ever been arrested or convicted in relation to illegal drugs and can decide to prevent entry to the country even if the person involved was never charged.
