Peaches Geldof claims hand in selfie belongs to the ghost of suicide girl



The snap shows four eerie fingers leering over Peaches and resting near her shoulder.

A peculiar hand appearing beside Peaches Geldof as she took a picture with her son is a ghost, the mum claimed.

She believes it is the phantom of a woman who took her own life nearly 100 years ago in her home.

The former model was taking a cute 'selfie' with her son Astala in her bathroom.

The snap shows four eerie fingers leering over Peaches and resting near her shoulder.

She posted it on Instagram saying, "Close up shot of the mystery ghost hand in pic I took of Astala and me In the bath!!''

"And no that isn't my hand- one of mine was round his waist to hold him during the photo, the other holding the camera to take the shot,'' she added.

After the incident, she began to research the history of her Kent home and discovered that a woman had killed herself in the bath after her own baby was stillborn in the 1920s.

''The house was build in the 1920s by a rich man and his pregnant wife,'' she said on the picture sharing site.

She explained how his wife had a stillborn baby and was so grief-stricken she went mad.

The woman had killed herself in the house, apparently drowning herself in the bathtub.

The daughter of Band Aid co-founder Sir Bob Geldof decided the spirit in the spooky image was 'friendly' and would not cause her any harm.

''The presence isn't malignant or angry, rather maternal and friendly - the house has a lovely atmoshphere,'' she said.

Although she initially expressed her shock at seeing a ghost, "Do you think that she is the ghost?? Seems like it seeing as I saw the ghost in the bath tub! Terrifying!!!!!!!"
