A woman has filmed her boyfriend eating a dead tarantula inside a toastie.

The Mirror Online reports Kirsty Matthews was making her boyfriend Daniel Brookes a cheese, pepperoni, jalapenos and chilli sauce crusty sandwich, before she decided to spice things up a little by adding the huge spider to the meal.

Although zebra tarantulas are edible, Daniel wasn't expecting his toastie to have the unique flavour it did and merrily munched on the savory snack before opening up the slices to find the squashed spider inside. He then rushed to the bathroom to be sick.

It's not known whether couple stayed together following Kirsty's prank.
