Playboy playmate Victoria Silvstedt was left red faced when her model pals forced her to travel with a suitcase full of sex aids - and she was stopped at customs.

The leggy blonde's pals threw her a surprise party and wouldn't let her leave until she promised to pack their saucy gifts for her travels the next day.

She recalls, "I left half of it and brought some in my suitcase. They checked my bag. That was a little bit embarrassing. They started taking out everything in my suitcase piece by piece."

It's not the first time Silvstedt has been caught out - she almost found herself standing naked in a hotel lobby in London when a fire alarm prank was pulled.

The Swedish model, who loves to sleep in the nude, was dashing out of her hotel room when her roommate insisted she put something on and in her haste she grabbed for a small towel.

She adds, "Everyone else was in teddybear pyjamas and slippers, and I was wearing a tiny towel."
