British pop singer Katie Melua's hearing is very important to her work. So, after a week of noticing a "rustling" in one ear, she decided to see a doctor. What the doctor saw stunned Melua.

Melua shared the experience with her Twitter and Instagram followers:

The doctor took a look inside Melua's ear and recorded video of a small spider that had taken up residence in her ear canal.
