London: Elizabeth Hurley suffered an embarrassing accident during a charity trip to New York that left her with an ugly black eye.

The actress/model has been forced to wear layers of concealer on her face during her round of TV appearances - after a mishap in her hotel room left her with a painful bruise to her right eye, reports the Daily Star.

In a post on her blog, Hurley wrote: "Back in hotel & just walked into the end of a clothes rail. Big bruise coming up by right eye. Not ideal for tomorrow’s TV."

She later added: "Thanks for all the black eye tips... don’t have any Arnica, trying an ice pack. It hurts!... Staring in mirror at large bruise. Make-up artist about to arrive. Will definitely get told off."
