Spill the beans

When you ask someone to spill the beans you are asking them to tell you secret information.

Examples:

As soon as he was arrested the thief spilled the beans: he told the police about the other members of his gang. The police caught them all.

You spent a whole hour in the boss's office. Is he going to give a pay rise? Come on, spill the beans!

Take note

If someone is described as being full of beans it means they are full of energy.

Example:

Johnny was full of beans when he visited his grandfather. The old man did everything to please the boy.
