Pop beauty Britney Spears is desperate to overcome a nasty addiction - she can't stop biting her toenails.

The sexy singer recently admitted to US talk show host JAY LENO she thought her toes were ugly, but she previously confided in her manicurist the state of her feet is the result of an uncontrollable urge to nibble them.

The specialist reveals, "She bites her toenails and however hard she tries, she just cant seem to break the habit. It's kind of gross, but it's amazing that she is flexible enough to do it."

Spears, 22, also dislikes the flower tattoo on her toe, insisting it "looks like a blob".
