The Chase's Jenny Ryan has left fans concerned after she revealed she had been bitten by a spider.

The much-loved Chaser took to Instagram today to share a photo of the bite on her wrist covered in cling wrap to protect the area from infection.

Alongside the photo she wrote: "Gonna pretend I've got a rad new tattoo when in fact it's a spider bite. #GlamorousShowbizLifestyle."

Worried for the 37-year-old brainiac's health, fans flooded the post with comments.

Another added: "Jenny be careful. A friend got a spider bite and it turned into an abscess. He had to have it drained, then packed every 2 days until the infection cleared up."

"Hope you're not suffering too much. Spiders can give a nasty nip. My mother was bitten on her leg by one a few years ago and had a reaction to the bite. She ended up in hospital on an intravenous drip of antibiotics and other concoctions for a few days," said a third.

We hope the bite doesn't turn more serious!
