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.

"Don't make yourself at home son, because you're coming out!"

The 36-year-old actor - who is in a relationship with Stacey Solomon - had a long wait to be seen then after leaving hospital revealed to his followers that doctors had been unable to help.

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)"
