'Coronation Street' star Brooke Vincent's house has been invaded by spiders, which left the Sophie Webster actress "stressed out" after she cleaned her upstairs only to find a creepy crawly in her bathroom
Brooke Vincent has been left "stressed out" after spiders invaded her house.
The 'Coronation Street' actress – who plays the ironically named Sophie Webster on 'Corrie' – hoovered up one of the eight-legged creepy crawlies yesterday (17.09.20), and after doing a "deep clean" of her upstairs she was shocked to find another spider in her bathroom last night, who she then washed down the drain.
Speaking on her Instagram Stories, she said: "This whole spider situation is stressing me out. Is anyone else experiencing this?
"I literally cleaned my upstairs of my house, every room, a deep, thorough clean.
"I come into my bathroom and it's in the shower. Where has it come from and where is it going? I just don't understand.
"I didn't hoover this one up. I put the shower on hot and swished it down the drain and put the plug on the top of it.
"I can't even deal with this s***."
Brooke – who is currently on maternity leave from the ITV soap – revealed she hoovered up the first spider she found, and was then shocked to discover it may lay eggs in her vacuum.
She added: "I hoovered him up, because I didn't know what else to do. I tried to save him.
"Then people are messaging me saying they will lay eggs in the hoover.
"But I had to make a quick rash decision, it was a ride or die moment.
"I'm looking at the hoover checking his legs aren't popping out of the bottom of it."
The cobbles star is now planning to buy some conkers to try to stop her spider issue, after a fan advised her that putting the seeds of horse chestnut trees around the doors and windows of her house will help to stop spiders entering her abode.
