A Marmite-obsessed woman has admitted she carries a jar in her handbag and licks it off the spoon.

Shelley McClellan, 45, is so obsessed with the salty condiment with the tagline, 'You either love it or hate it' that she even eats it as pasta sauce and puts it on cereal and tuna fish.

The mum-of-one from Hemel Hempstead in Hertfordshire, East England, grew up in Burton the home of Marmite and puts it with everything she eats and has collected more than 200 vintage jars.

According to The Sun Online, she said: "I love to eat Marmite on almost everything I have it in my stew, stocks, spaghetti bolognese.

"I go through a large 500 gram jar every week I either have about an inch thick of it on my bread, or just go straight in with the spoon."

A woman was forced out of her home after she found deadly spiders in her bananas.

Gemma Price from County Durham in North East England found hundreds of the potentially harmful insect feasting on her bunch of bananas, which she purchased from supermarket Asda.

The 30-year-old mother panicked when they managed to get into her seven-month-old baby boy's cot and after a call to the emergency services she was told to evacuate the property.

Gemma had to spend three days away from her home as a team went into to kill them.

She told "I bought some loose bananas from Asda, in Stanley, on Monday. Next day I came home from gym and picked one off from the bunch and went upstairs.

"As I peeled the banana a white egg sac, which I hadn't noticed before, broke and hundreds of little spiders were crawling on my hands and arms and down my pyjamas. I threw the banana down on the bed and they spread everywhere.

"I was freaking out and screaming and trying to kill as many as I could. Some got into my baby Leo's cot. I quickly picked him up and called 999.

"The operator asked if we had been bitten and when I said no, I was told to evacuate the property with my baby immediately and not to go back. My mother lived just across the road, so luckily I had somewhere to go that time of night."

Mrs Price was advised by the supermarket to bring the spiders and her fruit to the store to claim a refund.

She told the publication: "It was absolutely comical. There was no way I was going to be walking with potentially venomous spiders in my bag,' she said.

'I contacted head office the next day but they said there was not much they could do about it. The conversation got heated when he suggested I shake the baby's clothes out."

A Goth was spotted on the Moscow Metro carrying her pet raven on her knee.

The woman and the animal were photographed taking the underground by playwright Max Sparber who took to Twitter to share the odd sighting.

He captioned the post on the microblogging site: "Sure, you're Goth, but are you dejectedly riding the subway with your raven Goth? (sic)"

Many social media users think she was using the larger-bodied species to ensure she had a seat on the train.

A girl had such a "big night" out, she fell asleep with her pizza escaping from its box on the London underground.

British journalist James Longman shared the laugh-out-loud sighting on Twitter.

He has asked his followers if they should set up a Crowdfunding page to raise money for the unlucky reveller to get her a new pizza.

In a series of tweets, he wrote: "Big night (it's 8 a.m.) ... Shall we start a crowdfunding page? #jesuispizza let's find her and get her a new pizza! (sic)"
