Singer gets a spider removed from her ear

The next time someone laughs at you for jumping when you see a creepy-crawly, you tell them about what happened to Katie Melua.

The singer had to go to hospital this week to get a spider removed from her ear.

Yes, you read that correctly – a spider.

Are you as freaked out as we are right now?

In an absolutely terrifying series of Instagram posts, Katie revealed how the spider had crawled into her ear via her ear monitors.

Sharing a video to the social media site, the 30-year-old wrote: “So I had a rustling in my ear for a week and went to the doctor to have it checked out this morning. THIS little fella is what they found!”

Posting a photo of the in-ear monitors she uses to block out sound on a flight, she added: “Little spider must have been in them and crawled inside my ear and stayed there for the week. It was no hassle at all, apart from the occasional shuffling noises….”

We’re not sure we would have been quite so understanding!

It looks as though Katie may have developed somewhat of an attachment to her new little friend, as she was sure to post a photo of him “alive and seemingly fine” in a test tube.

Creepiest. Story. Ever.
