Security staff at London's HEATHROW airport have seized six leather whips from British pop beauty Rachel Stevens'.

Customs confiscated the raunchy accessories from Stevens - who was travelling from Edinburgh, Scotland ahead of last night's ROYAL VARIETY Performance in the English capital - because they could be used as weapons.

The former S CLUB singer, who insisted they were part of her onstage act, says, "It's funny. What did they imagine."
