The morning show of 2DayFM was temporarily stopped after Erin Molan, the host, suddenly fell ill. Hughesy then called for an ad break.
During the segment, Molan was petrified of spiders as she was confronted by a listener who was arachnophobic.
She screamed and fell to the floor as the terrified listener recorded the incident on Instagram.
The audio shows a shaky Erin saying to the camera: “We’re about to have spiders put on us.”
She then starts to breathe heavily and let out several nervous moans as the small spider is released next to her. The handler then advises the two women to calm down and stay calm.
Linda, who was able to hold the spider briefly, was petrified when Erin tried to take it with her.
Despite her discomfort, Molan continued to host the show. She eventually fell to the floor after agreeing to have the spider put on her.
Hughesy then said “We need to go to a break, go to a break, absolutely. We need to go to a break,” as producer the producers asked everyone to leave the recording studio.
