Matthew Morrison got back to his home in LA to find the place had been taken over by rats, and has revealed that the infestation was so bad he was forced to flee to a hotel.
The Glee star said: "I came home and World War III broke out in my house. There was rat poop all over my house when I got home. I go upstairs and there was a huge rat in my bed."
Talking on The Billy Bush Show on US radio, he added: "It was just the worst night ever. I tried to catch the rat and he darted away... We were playing cat and mouse - or Matt and rat, I guess."
The 32-year-old, who plays Will Schuester in the E4 TV series, left to spend the night in a hotel and said he is now considering selling up: "This is my house that I own. Now I want to put it back on the market!"
