Scared? You probably should be, because the world just realised ghosts are real.

People who are following our family’s move to Italy may know of our waiting waiting waiting (Italian style) to move onto our permanent apartment – so when @davoandy and @tashprendergast blew into bologna, we took them on a tour to check on its progress. It’s in an old palazzo… some of it built in the 1300s, and there are three giant mirrors in the lounge, apparently from the 1700s. So much age. I said to Tash “I always think if I turn around really quickly, I’ll be able to see the past in this mirror…” So we were laughing, and decided to take a selfie to see if anything would appear. Look over my head. WTF is that??? Also, I hope if that white apparition is a ghost that it at least pitches in with the renos so we can finally move in.???? ???? #wescreamed #withlaughter #sixtakeitaly❤️???????????? #possiblyseven #romewasntbuiltinaday

She explains the apartment was partly built in the 1300s, and there are three large mirrors in the living room from the 1700s.

It’s all innocent enough, until you look in the damn mirror and see not one but two ghosts.

There's very clearly a white nun-looking ghost on the right, and her weird little Darth Vader friend on the left.

The Australian television presenter confirmed acknowledged that ghosts are might be real in her caption, writing “I always think if I turn around really quickly, I’ll be able to see the past in this mirror...” followed by "WTF is that??? Also, I hope if that white apparition is a ghost that it at least pitches in with the renos so we can finally move in."

A few theories on the origins of these ghosts.

Ghost one (pictured right): Beatrice.
