The arachnophobe’s nightmare happened on Monday morning when he had just woken up and was playing around on his phone.

‘So I was laying in bed playing on my phone when I noticed something move,’ he said.

‘Old mate was crawling along the roof and then moved under the fan.’

‘I was thinking to myself: ‘At least if he falls he will hit the fan and not me’… then he promptly moved out of the fans reach and fell straight on top of me!’

The man said despite his loud reaction and excessive swearing his partner managed to sleep through the entire ordeal.

‘My partner managed to sleep through the whole thing, she still has no idea!’

The man confirmed he scooped the huntsman up in a plastic container and took him outside.
