From men trying to ‘taste’ soy sauce with their testicles, to teens placing coins in iPhone chargers, a number of bizarre trends have circulated on TikTok in recent weeks.
Now, the latest trend sees teens eating the ‘pill’ inside Clearblue pregnancy tests.
Many of these videos suggest that the pill inside is the ‘Plan B’ contraceptive pill.
One user posted a video, writing: “you didn't believe there was plan B in clearblue pregnancy test,” while another wrote: “I cannot believe it’s true!”
Meanwhile, another girl filmed herself breaking open a pregnancy test, writing: “I saw on TikTok that there is a plan b in all pregnancy tests so we had to try it.”

Now, Clearblue has confirmed that the tablet inside its pregnancy tests is not the contraceptive bill.
Instead, the pills are actually tabs designed to absorb moisture.
Posting on its website, Clearblue said: “We are aware of videos circulating about Clearblue pregnancy tests and the tablet found inside.

“Clearblue pregnancy tests do NOT contain Plan B. All our tests contain a small desiccant tablet which is included to absorb moisture and should not be eaten.”
The trend comes shortly after a dangerous challenge circulated on TikTok, in which teens tried to use their smartphone camera flash to change the colour of their eyes.
The trend appears to have started after TikTok user Maliabroo posted a video, claiming that the platform has a new filter called ‘S5’ that changes your eye colour when used with flash.

In her video, she explained: “If you have brown eyes…this filter turns them blue! S5 + back camera and flash.”
She then ended the video showing that her eyes were blue, despite having been brown at the start of the video.
Several keen viewers attempted the challenge themselves, and unsurprisingly, it didn’t work.

One commenter said: “I went blind and no blue eyes,” while another added: “And now I am blind.”
The S5 filter is actually just a pre-set filter on TikTok which adds a blue tinge to videos, and doesn’t change your eye colour at all.
Worryingly, using a camera flash in your eye can lead to ‘flash blindness’ – temporary dark spots in your vision.
