June 24, 2013: A Canadian weather presenter was caught off guard when a the image of a spider was projected onto the live camera backdrop as she gave the weather forecast.

A Canadian meteorologist shrieked and ducked for cover during a live weather report after a spider crawled in front of her camera.

Global BC weather reporter Kristi Gordon ran off camera as the spider appeared on the screen behind her.

"Oh my gosh that was creepy," she said.

"Of course he had to be right on my head.

"I just don't like that."

She then composed herself to continue her weather update.

At the weekend, Ms Gordon said on Twitter she was crying after the "embarrassing spider freak out moment".

"Just didn't want to show on-air so I kept laughing to regroup," she tweeted.

"Embarrassingly not the first time freaked out by spiders, bugs, snakes and Halloween."

Last August, Ms Gordon also panicked after a bug "dive bombed" her during a forecast.
