Coronation Street actor Harry Visinoni was left stunned after a routine trip to the bathroom of his Manchester flat saw him come face to face with a snake.
The actor who plays the role of Seb Franklin on the hit soap was left in a state of disbelief when he discovered the scaley reptile hiding behind his toilet as he attempted to brush his teeth.
Harry, 21, took to his Instagram Stories to share his horror with his 10,300 followers on Saturday night as he was left bewildered by the exotic animal.
He stood filming the slithery creature as it made its way from behind the toilet and onto the toilet seat as his girlfriend, Ellie Isaacs stood back in horror.
While filming his new-found pal, Harry was heard saying: "There's a f**king snake right there."
Out of shot, he was then heard describing the cold-blooded animal's colour and body patterns before an RSPCA worker came to retrieve the creature.
Harry later filmed the worker from RSPCA Altrincham as she attempted to remove the snake from behind a radiator.
He was told to "watch his fingers" as the snake could "strike" as he will be "p***ed off" following the disturbance.
Once the animal had been recovered and taken to safety, Harry revealed that it had been a "gift" from the previous owner of his flat.
After the ordeal, Harry told the Metro: "I just felt really confused, to be honest.
"I don't think my girlfriend is ever going to go to the toilet on her own ever again."
Harry has appeared on Coronation Street since 2016, working as a builder before dating Faye Windass and most recently, Alina Pop.
Seb helped Salina expose an illegal human trafficking ring who had her working in a nail salon, he also stood by his mum, Abi Franklin's side as she painfully decided to give her twins up for adoption after she battled a drug addiction.
