'Terrified' woman returns home to find mutant potatoes have taken over flat

When the coronavirus lockdown restrictions were announced, Donna Porée wasted no time in fleeing her home to spend quarantine with her friend on the other side of town.

Among the belongings she left behind as she hurriedly relocated was a simple bag of potatoes she had picked up from the local shop with the intention of cooking them for dinner, according to

She didn't give them a second thought as she happily passed the time with her friend, before returning to the flat in Caen, France, for the first time three months later.

But when she opened the door she said she was left 'terrified' by the unassuming bag of spuds, which had grown meter-long pink tentacles and reached out to every corner of her small flat.

The communications manager said: "As I opened the front door, I noticed a strange shape at the back of the kitchen.

"As the light was off and shutters down, I didn't realize it was the potatoes.

"It was only after opening the shutters that I took note of this extraordinary sight.

"I was terrified at first, but after realizing what it was I laughed a lot and shared a video of the plant on Snapchat.

"My friends couldn't stop laughing. They found the whole situation unbelievable."
