'Maggots make me jump'
Sinead Desmond, Ireland AM Presenter
'Anything squirmy freaks me outs -- maggots, earwigs and creepy crawlies in general make me jump. But we did have to get up close to some slimy things for an Ireland AM feature once and because I'm very competitive, I faced my fear and did it anyway. Something I dread more than fear is people pulling cotton wool apart. It gives me the shivers and I dread being in the same room as anyone doing it."
