Hilarious footage has surfaced showing former supermodel Kate Moss unwittingly outing herself as a 'wagon.'

While telling a story in a clip from TikTok, she reveals her nickname from her supermodel days - one which thought she was given to her because she and her fellow models drank a lot.

Unfortunately for Kate, she believed that the word 'wagon' was Irish for being drunk.....

We were in Ireland and we got a little bit tipsy at a wedding, and I think in Irish "wagon" is "drunk".

So, basically we were all wagons. Because during that time we were all doing shows, drinking a lot of champagne and calling each other wagon.

While Moss was engaged to U2 bassist Adam Clayton, Bono's wife would call her and her model friends 'the wagons.'

According to Campbell this was 'Because we're wagons. Because we're naughty, we enjoy life, we laugh, just girls having fun.'
