You know that irrational fear lots of people have of stumbling across a snake hiding in the bathroom?
For Coronation Street star Harry Visinoni, that fear recently became a shocking reality.
In a series of videos shared on his Instagram Story, Harry, who plays Seb Franklin on the ITV soap, revealed that he found a snake poking its head from behind the toilet in his bathroom while he was brushing his teeth.
Tagging his girlfriend Ellie Isaacs in the first video, Harry, 21, can be heard saying: ‘There is a snake. There is a f***ing snake right there.’
As the snake emerges from behind the toilet, slithering its body across the toilet seat cover, Harry provides what he jokingly describes as an ‘expert description’ of the reptile, stating: ‘It’s like yellow with kind of black almost tiger kind of lines.’
Speaking exclusively to Metro.co.uk, Harry admitted: ‘I just felt really confused to be honest.’
Warning: this video contains swear words.
He added that the ordeal has had a particularly significant effect on his girlfriend, stating: ‘I don’t think my girlfriend is ever going to go to the toilet on her own ever again.’
Fortunately, the couple were able to reach out to RSPCA Altrincham Cheshire for assistance, who he filmed carefully retrieving the snake from his home.
In one of Harry’s videos, he captures one of the members of the RSPCA speaking softly to the snake, stating: ‘I love you to bits, but I ain’t getting bitten.’
They can also be heard warning Harry and Ellie to ‘watch their fingers’, as the snake ‘might strike’ them as ‘he’s going to be p***ed off’.
Harry revealed at the very end of the series of videos on his Instagram Story that the snake ‘was a gift from the previous owner of the flat’.
Next time, a plant or a bottle of wine will do!
