Well, in fact I was faced with a buzz of a different kind this week...
The buzz of insects.
There I was in the Magazine office working away when I started to get a little paranoid as my normally lovely colleagues seemed to be whispering and shushing when I was around.
When I approached producers Jacqui and Maura with a query about what I'd be doing for this week's programme they'd change the subject or mumble incoherently.
I was right to be concerned!
Yesterday I found out, and in the most horrible fashion, that I faced a Bushtucker trial, I'm a Celebrity style.
Producer Jacqui tried to reassure me that a third of the world's population eats bugs.
You can find out tonight whether or not I joined them...
Also on the programme - staying with the jungle theme - there's been a huge rise in the popularity of survival weekends, foraging in the woods, catching your dinner, making fire, so tune in to see Malachi Cush transfom into Bear Grylls for one night only as he braves the elements somewhere in County Antrim with the guys from NI Survival.
(Men love that sort of thing - what's that all about?!)
You might have seen on the news last week the scary pictures of the crush at the big concert in Fintona. Thankfully no one was injured, but the singer they were all trying to see was rising country star Derek Ryan. We'll be catching up with him to see how he's coping with his new found fame.
Also, did anyone out there go to The Rosetta Bar in Belfast back in the day - well you'll enjoy a report from our John Kearns as he rolls back the decades for their 80s reunion
And we're at home with the Holmes again as Eamonn and Ruth argue the bit out over "thubbing".
Find out more at 8 tonight on UTV.
(I need to lie down now - feeling very queasy)
