Dermot Kennedy was close to bugging out when he swallowed a giant creepy-crawly live on stage.

In an exclusive interview with Guilty Pleasures, the Irish singer recalled having to wing it as he found himself facing his very own bushtucker trial performing in the Philippines last month.

‘It was outdoors and at night-time, and I was coming up to the last verse of the song, and this massive insect flew into my mouth,’ he shared.

‘I essentially strangled myself on this huge moth as I went to sing.

‘I choked into the mic. It was not a very dignified thing.’

Dermot, 30, revealed he had no other choice but to swallow the moth.

‘It was an ongoing issue for about 15 minutes after the gig as well,’ he winced.

‘I absolutely hate insects, anything that crawls, and 
so the best way for it to happen was for it to 
completely take me by surprise!’

Meanwhile, the Brit nominee is expected to fly high with his, ahem, critter-ly acclaimed second album Sonder, which is out now.

The record’s title refers to the realisation that the lives of strangers are just as complex as your own.

And he explained: ‘There are so many times I’ve met people where it’s a really brief interaction, and they’ll tell me something about how much my music has helped them, or mentored them, or how it was part of a life-altering moment.

‘It’s an important thing, and something that I think you shouldn’t become numb to either, because it’s very easy do that and just take things like that for granted.’

Dermot specified an encounter with a fan in North Carolina, US, who had recently lost a loved one. ‘He asked if he could give me a hug, and in a weird way that’s hard to put your finger on there was so much packed into – you could feel a huge amount of emotion in this person,’ he said. ‘It’s something I’ll never forget.’
