Harry Visinoni was left hiss-terical when he discovered a snake behind his toilet over the weekend.
The 'Coronation Street' actor was stunned to spot a serpent lurking behind his loo when he was brushing his teeth, and he took to Instagram to share his reptile revelation.
Speaking in a video, he shrieked: "There is a snake. There is a f****** snake right there!"
But quick-thinking Harry – who plays Seb Franklin on the ITV soap – rang RSPCA Altrincham and described his intruder as "yellow with kind of black, almost sort of, kind of, tiger vibes".
Fortunately, a member of staff from the RSPCA came to his rescue and safely removed the serpent from his bathroom.
Harry joked: "Turns out he was a gift from the previous owner of the flat... (sic)"
The star's close call comes after he admitted late last year there is nowhere he would rather be than a "cold and wet" Weatherfield.
He posted: "Nowhere else I’d rather be on a cold wet Thursday morning!! (ft. Vauxhall Astra) (sic)"
Harry – who has played Seb since October 2016 – previously admitted he loves working alongside his on-screen mum Sally Carman (Abi Franklin), and he has "learned a lot" from the former 'Shameless' star.
He said: "I really enjoy it and we bounce off each other. "She is a great person for me to look up to and learn a lot from because she is a talented actor.
"I love having a little family unit in the show and I really couldn’t ask for a better person to be playing my mum."
