SUSANNA Reid was given a fright on Good Morning Britain today as I'm A Celebrity leeches caused chaos.
Richard Arnold brought on a expert on to discuss the problems on the jungle show – and the creepy crawlies threatened to break loose.

A report this week suggested that I'm A Celeb's famous waterfall showers may be cancelled this year due to an invasion of water leeches.
Richard illustrated the story by bringing on a leech expert to talk about the critters on GMB today – and he had plenty of specimens with him.
He was seen handling one of the blood-sucking nasties and revealed the leeches are good at jumping.
The leech then appeared to demonstrate its jumping ability and Susanna cried out as it looked as if it was going to break loose.

The Daily Star reported that the I'm A Celebrity set will be battered by bad weather over the next few days ahead of the launch on Sunday – and the cool temperatures and rain could lead to an invasion of leeches.
The bloodsucking creatures are lured out by the damp conditions, and it means that the waterfall shower – made famous thanks to the bevy of bikini-clad contestants who've lathered up in it – would be out of bounds some days.
This is because the creek on the set becomes infested with leeches during cool and rainy weather.
The waterfall shower has become famous thanks to the likes of Myleene Klass and Vicki Pattison donning their bikinis to enjoy a wash.

The news of potential problems comes just days before the 2017 edition of the show kicks-off on Sunday.
The initial line-up for this year's show has been confirmed and will see a mixed bag of stars heading into the outback.
The female contestants are WAG Rebekah Vardy, MIC's Georgia Toffolo, Corrie's Jennie McAlpine, The Saturdays singer Vanessa White, and comedian Shappi Khorsandi.
They will be joined by Stanley Johnson (father to Boris), boxer Amir Khan, Hollyoaks star Jamie Lomas, YouTuber Jack Maynard, and ex-Chelsea star Denis Wise.
Back to present the show are TV faves Ant and Dec, while Scarlett Moffatt and Joel Dommett have been lined-up alongside Joe Swash to present spin-off show Extra Camp.
