Sexy model Sophie Dahl has flown her mother to a top drug detox clinic in America - after she accidentally overdosed on booze and pills.

According to British tabloid NEWS OF THE WORLD, TESSA DAHL spent a night in the JOHN RADCLIFFE hospital in Oxford, England before Sophie dashed back from New York to be by her side.

The caring beauty then flew her mum - who has a history of drink and drug abuse - to the COTTONWOOD DE TUCSON clinic in Arizona and is picking up the $1,600 (GBP1,000) tab.

An insider says, "Sophie was in New York but dropped everything to catch the first Concorde to London to be with her mum."
