"A teenage girl had more than 100 tiny "bubble tea" balls trapped in her stomach after downing too many cups of her favourite drink.

"The 14-year-old was dashed to hospital after suffering constipation and a bad appetite for five days.

"Scans found the patient, known by a pseudonym Xiao Shen, had failed to digest the tiny dark balls, which help form the "bubble tea"."

"Bubble tea comes in many different flavours and is usually filled with a large spoonful of tapioca balls called “pearls” or “boba”.

"These black, chewy pearls are made from the cassava plant and are often used as a food thickener."

Eh I call fake on this one. The x Ray looks weird like she has them in her lungs. Plus they are basically jello balls which means stomach acid would melt them pretty much on contact. And if she did have too many she'd have the opposite of constipation. The CT scan doesn't show anything either they are again like jello.

I've never heard of bubble tea before now, but I see it's become popular in the UK too.

Bubble tea is suddenly all the rage over here in the UK, but it’s actually been a hot (or cold!) favourite in countries like Hong Kong, China and Taiwan since the 1980s.

I don't fancy it so it won't be going on my shopping list.
