Katie Melua Posts Picture Of Spider That Lived In Her Head

You may have heard that singer Katie Melua had an uninvited guest stay with her last week.

Here he is. And yes, that is the inside of her ear...

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!

The story has now had a happy ending for both parties after the presumably-lost arachnid was removed.

He now lives in this tube, probably still feeling a little disorientated but looking considerably less terrifying.

Her spokesperson (Katie's) said: "The ear specialist said he'd never in his career taken out a live bug before. Plenty of dead ones. When it was out, it was pretty tiny."

If this story has tickled your fancy then you're in for a treat. Here are two more disgusting insects-in-ear pieces for you to enjoy...
