Couple photobombed by 'spirit of dead soldier' at restaurant in 'best ever ghost pic'
| Last updated
A couple were left stunned after their date night pictures were allegedly ‘photobombed’ by a ghost.
Back in 2021, Ross Cheeseman and his partner Georgia Renshaw-Smith were out in London enjoying lavish birthday celebrations at the iconic Quaglinos restaurant when the spooky phenomenon happened.
At the famous brasserie-style eatery, which has hosted everyone from Queen Elizabeth II to Elton John, the pair were enjoying their evening drinking flutes of champagne and digging into fresh oysters.
However, while taking photographs of themselves to remember the occasion, they seemingly had their snaps spoiled by an unwanted dinner guest.
In pictures taken by the 35-year-old, a ghostly figure of a ‘dead soldier’ could allegedly be seen in the background.
Ross believes that the spirit, which featured alongside him and his 26-year-old girlfriend in a selfie, was a dead ‘military man in uniform’. See the haunting image for yourself below:
According to the Bristolian, the snap left both the restaurant waitresses and the manager ‘spooked’. He claimed that they said they had ‘never seen anything like it before’.
Speaking about the eerie intruder, the father-of-one said: "I had taken one or two photos that my partner wasn't happy with so I took another, this was the picture that when we looked at it revealed what looks like a ghost in the background.
"I think the ghostly figure looks like some sort of ex-military man with broad shoulders in uniform looking over the shoulder of me or my partner.”
The quality assurance inspector continued to say that in pictures, he could make out ‘as pine and ribs’ and believed that the spirit also had some sort of headband or hat on.
After leaving Quaglinos, Ross said that he showed his and Georgia’s family the pictures - and they were amazed by the reported spectre.
“[Georgia's] family thought I had doctored the photo but then realised that's impossible given the time in between taking it and showing them.
"I have absolutely no explanation for what it is that's behind us.”
Since snapping the soldier, Ross claims to have shown various people the pictures and always receives expressions of awe.
“I have shown various people and posted on various sites and only ever get the same response, that it's the most insane ghost picture ever captured on camera.
"My partner is still baffled by the photo, as is the whole family. It comes up in jokes all the time with people mimicking the ghostly figure.”
Despite not believing in ghosts, Ross says that he is ‘amazed’ to have caught the military man on camera two years ago.
“Now I'm thrilled that this picture is getting seen by people because it really does need to be seen. Could I have accidentally captured the best ghost picture ever? Who knows?”
