‘It’s an actual turanchular!’ Jesy Nelson is panic-stricken as she finds HUGE spider in her kitchen sink and insists she can see hairs on its legs
Jesy Nelson was left panic-stricken on Wednesday afternoon as she found a huge spider in her kitchen sink.
The former Little Mix singer, 29, insisted she could see hairs on its legs as she took to her Instagram Stories to document her find.
‘It’s an actual turanchular!’ exclaimed a petrified Jesy of the air-breathing arthropod – which is most likely to be a giant house spider – and likened her situation to ‘living in the outback’.

Jesy’s spider incident comes after she took to Instagram on Tuesday to share updates from the recording studio as she continues to record solo music following her exit from Little Mix.

Jesy gushed over their impressive accolade last week as she shared a sweet snap of her ex-bandmates to Instagram.
WHAT ARE TARANTULAS AND WHAT DO WE KNOW ABOUT THEM?
Tarantulas are hairy and generally large spiders most commonly found in the US, Mexico and tropical America.
The largest species of tarantula are found in South America and belong to the genus Theraphosa.
They are almost three inches long (7.5cm) and has been known to even capture small avian prey.
Female tarantulas have a more stocky body than a male and is covered in a light brown or tan hair
The male is thinner and lankier, with black hair covering most of the body and reddish hairs on its abdomen.
Tarantulas have two body parts, the cephalothorax and the abdomen, eight walking legs and two pedipalps that are used for touching and moving prey.
Tarantulas are very sensitive to vibrations in the ground that may indicate the presence of prey or danger.
They are equipped with urticating hairs on their abdomen which can be released by kicking with the back legs; these hairs irritate the nose and eyes of would-be attackers.
Tarantulas live in dry, well-drained soils in open areas throughout the desert and grassland areas.
All North American tarantulas are ground-dwellers although some other species live in trees, cliffs, caves, or in crops like bananas and pineapples.
Some tarantula species are endangered because of habitat destruction and over-collection for the pet trade.
Tarantulas are nocturnal hunters. They feed primarily on insects like grasshoppers, beetles, other small spiders and arthropods, and will sometimes eat small lizards.
They will attempt to overcome anything of the right size that moves in their range. Most tarantulas have weak venom.
The singer posted the lovely image of pregnant Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Perrie Edwards alongside Jade Thirlwall, with a line of heart and clapping hand emojis.
Jesy didn’t attend the ceremony at London’s O2 Arena, instead spending the day in the studio working on her solo music and teasing fans with an ‘exciting’ new track.
She wrote: ‘I nearly just cried at the song we’ve wrote today wosixjxkakamzossi that’s how excited I am for you guys to hear this [sic].’
When accepting their well-earned award Leigh-Anne, Perrie and Jade ensured to give a shoutout to their former fourth member Jesy.

Taking to the stage, Leigh-Anne said: ‘We have been together for 10 years it’s been the best years of our life, we’ve had so much fun we’ve made so many memories, we want to thank your incredible fans, Jesy.
‘It’s not easy being a female in the UK pop industry, we’ve seen the misogyny, dominance and lack of diversity, we’re proud of how we’re stuck together and we’re using our voices more than ever.’
While Jade added: ‘This award isn’t just for us, it’s for Spice Girls, Sugababes, All Saints, Girls Aloud, all the incredible girls bands we love you.’
