A house full of spiders is a nightmarish scenario for most people, so for some reason the BBC have decided to make a TV show about just that.

The new show Spider House has been described as ‘like Big Brother but with creepy crawlies’.

Spider expert Dr Tim Cockerill will fill a house with the eight legged monsters, before being joined by Dr Alice Roberts who is, bizarrely, a self proclaimed arachnophobia.

Using new macro cameras, the team will film the spiders going about their lives, which will see them fighting, eating, and even loving in a run down Gothic house.

Sounds fun, right?

As well as scaring us, the show also promises to educate viewers on many myths and mysteries about spiders.

For instance, it turns out spiders are always found in the bathroom because it is the most humid room in the house and they are attracted to water.

Dr Roberts said: ‘Watch Spider House and you’ll never look at spiders in the same way again.’

She might be confronting her fears, however we don’t suggest people who are afraid of spiders watch, unless you want 90 minutes of torture.
