Joe Swash gets cockroach stuck in ear

Share article:

Joe Swash was rushed to hospital after getting a cockroach stuck in his ear - but medics were unable to remove it.

The "I'm a Celebrity... Extra Camp" star had a medical drama hours after wrapping filming on the live spin-off show on Sunday (25.11.18) and was told he'd have to wait 24 hours to see a specialist because doctors couldn't get the creature out of his ear canal.

Joe documented the incident on his Instagram Story.

He said: "So, we're just on the way to the hospital to get a cockroach sucked out of my ear. All the perks of this job, eh!"

He then shared a follow-up clip in which he said: "Just walking up to the hospital. Still can't quite believe that I've got an animal that's living in my ear hole.

He said: "Just got out the hospital. Doctor said they can't get the cockroach out my ear. I've got to see a specialist tomorrow so they can use some special equipment on it."

Joe's ear woes came less than a week after his "Extra Camp" co-host Joel Dommett was forced to miss a show when he needed seven stitches to his head after being badly knocked by a sign as severe winds played havoc in Australia during rehearsals.

However, Joel - who came second in the 2016 series of the Australian jungle reality show - still had his sense of humour intact as he joked about having a "half day" and watched his colleagues Scarlett Moffatt - who beat Joel to be crowned Queen of the Jungle two years ago - and 2008 winner Joe from the comfort of his hotel room.

Alongside a picture of himself getting fixed up in the medical room and a selfie taken afterwards, he wrote on instagram: "Unfortunately due to unforeseen windy circumstances blowing the set onto my head during rehearsals, I won't be able to present Extra Camp this evening. I had seven stitches like a big brave boy and I'll be back tomorrow. To be honest I'm less worried about my health and more worried that the show will be better without me. Half a day off school to go home and watch neighbours! Woo! GOOD LUCK @scarlettmoffatt and @realjoeswashy (sic)"
