The German stunner reveals she battled the bugs a few months ago, but they came back.

"I'm actually lice free now as of a few days ago," she told a worried Ellen Degeneres on her U.S. TV show on Wednesday (28Oct15). "It was horrible.

"You can't see them (lice), they're so small. My kids had them. The nurse at school saw them... It was awful."

The Project Runway star called in a company called the Lice Fairies to help her tackle the problem.

"You do get a certificate from the Lice Fairies when you go to school, because the school wants to know," she added. "They brush you for hours and get all these lice out of your hair."
