(Scroll down for video) A popular singer in the United Kingdom, said that a spider was living inside her ear for a week.
Katie Melua said that she had been bugged by the spider before going to a doctor, who used a micro-vacuum cleaner to remove the creature.
Melua, 30, believes that the spider, identified as a member of the Salticidae family, made its way into her ear by using plugs. Melua used a pair of old ear plugs to block out sound on a flight.
However, the small spider must have been on them and it crawled inside her ear. The doctor managed to pull the spider form her ear alive.
Melua took the spider, which was placed inside a plastic tube, and tossed it in her garden. Besides the random noises in her ear, the spider did not cause any discomfort during the week it lived there.
