JOHANNESBURG - Australia cricket legend Shane Warne was bitten by a snake in the head during an episode of a TV reality show.

A challenge on the show, I'm A Celebrity … Get Me Out Of Here!, required Warne to plunge head first into a snake tank.

He had previously carried out challenges with African clawed frogs, scorpions, Madagascan hissing cockroaches and rats.

Host Dr Chris Brown warned Warne that with the scent of rat on his skin, the snakes could easily think he is their next meal.

As Warne lowered his head into the box, an aggressive snake had struck him.

Warne is fine and had received treatment.

Medics say he will be left with small, but permanent scarring.
