An Australian state's health minister was giving a Covid update when a journalist pointed out she had a huntsman spider crawling on her.
Yvette D'ath remained calm but was keen to get help.
Huntsmans are large spiders with a leg span of up to 15cm (six inches). Despite possessing venom, they are reluctant to bite and are not considered dangerous.
