Fans distracted by spider bite on Melissa McCarthy’s neck in Meghan Markle video

Melissa McCarthy was seen wearing a huge plaster on her neck during Meghan Markle’s video to celebrate her 40th’s birthday.

Melissa was featured in the Duchess of Sussex’s video that she launched as an initiative for people to commit to giving 40 minutes of their time to support women going back to work.

The hilarious launch video featured Melissa having a Zoom call with Meghan and making quips about getting matching tattoos or planning a Suits reunion.

But fans were distracted by a large plaster on the actress’s neck.

The 50-year-old shared a video previously where she revealed she had suffered from a terrifying spider bite while filming two projects in Australia this year.

She explained the horrible effects of a huntsman spider bite, which left her feeling itchy and unwell, as she covered herself in cold towels in order to cool off.

In March, she shared a hysterical video to Instagram of her lying in bed with bandage wraps on both hands.

She begins the video by saying “I love that all the bugs and creatures will kill you.”

Melissa is then shown lying in bed covered in cooling towels.

“I love that I’ve seen a spider the size of my head,” she next reveals before the camera cuts to her declaring: “I’m itchy! It’s reached my face. Pretty puffy guys”

“After professing my love of Australian critters to InStyle magazine, I was quickly reminded by someone that I was conveniently forgetting the aftermath of some of those "magical" bites,” Melissa captioned the funny clip.

The actress has been in Australia since last year filming the upcoming TV series Nine Perfect Strangers, which is based on the 2018 novel of the same name by Big Little Lies author Liane Moriarty.

The show will tell the story of nine stressed-out urbanites who escape to a wellness retreat run by Nicole Kidman's character.

Melissa and her husband Ben Falcone were also recently spotted on the set of Thor: Love and Thunder alongside Matt Damon and Luke Hemsworth.
