Dan Snow found a rat on the toilet and the replies have got everyone terrified

Well, when we say Dan Snow it was actually Dan Snow’s sister who heard a splash in the bathroom and, well, probably best to let Dan explain what happened next.

And if the TV presenter and all-round good egg was hoping for some reassurance about his nightmare scenario, he was disappointed. Sitting on the toilet is never going to be the same again.

No wonder he did this.

Help was at hand.

And if you don’t have a dog …

To conclude …

And because Dan likes his history, there was also this.
