Los Angeles, Sep 4 : Actress Helen Flanagan came face-to-face with a massive tarantula in her family home which left her completely terrified.
The terrified actress confessed to being “creeped out” and took refuge in her dressing room, hoping that her ex, Scott Sinclair, would come to her help, reports â€˜Mirror.co.ukâ€™.
However, the mother of three didn’t call for help from her ex-fiance, who was visiting their children Matilda, Charlie, and Delilah at their old home. She feared that Scott, knowing her phobia of insects, would “chuck it” at her and chase her around the house in jest.
As per â€˜Mirror.co.ukâ€™, the â€˜Coronation Streetâ€™ star recounted the incident to her one million Instagram followers, saying, “So I literally have just been tidying up the house and I was going down the stairs and didn’t have the landing light on and noticed this tarantula on my stairs.”
Despite having participated in â€˜I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Hereâ€™ last year, which somewhat lessened her fear of creepy crawlies, she admitted, “I just don’t like him, it was like massive and hairy as well (sic)”. She later barricaded herself in her dressing room, where she busied herself with some editing work, only to find the tarantula had followed her.
She added, “I thought to myself ‘Could you imagine if I opened my door and it was there’ and it was like what the hell!?” In a later update, she informed her fans that the eight-legged intruder had disappeared, which she confessed: “creeped her out more.”
In a dramatic turn of events, Helen discovered the same spider she had previously encountered lurking ominously around her home. She described it as “so big” and panned her camera over its intimidating spread outside her son Charlie’s bedroom.
