Man makes shocking discovery inside his ear: 'Stuck for YEARS'

A man has made a ‘years old’ discovery inside his ear after buying a tiny camera to help him remove earwax.

Ellis Lloyd Jones shared a video of his “minging” find to his 205,000 followers on TikTok, showing the moment he found a strange object among clumps of wax and hair.

The camera, attached to a small scoop, is designed to help clean out the ear – though experts advise against sticking any tool into your ear canal.

In the now-viral TikTok video, Mr Jones shows the moment he spots a strange white object.

“I found something I don’t think you should find in your ear,” he says.

He managed to “scoop” it out and lie it out on a paper towel before he realised it was a sticker from a Gala apple.

Despite being covered in wax, the word ‘Gala’ is clearly visible.

"I haven't had a Gala apple in years," Mr Jones said. "So this by here has been stuck in my ears for years."

The video has clocked up more than 8 million views on TikTok, with viewers stumped by the bizarre find.

“But how?!” one woman wrote.

"THIS IS NOT WHAT THEY MEANT BY AN APPLE A DAY KEEPS THE DOCTOR AWAY,” someone else wrote.

“I genuinely thought you just scooped out your ear drum, that was a roller coaster of emotions,” another added.

In September last year, doctors found a cockroach inside the ear of a man in China who woke up with a sharp pain in his ear canal.

A month later, a woman – also in China – had a spider removed from her ear after experiencing discomfort for an entire night.
