David Cameron Photobombs Labour Councillor's Selfie At Festival
When taking a selfie at a music festival there is every chance that there's going to be something interesting in the background.
However, the thing you probably least expect is to catch the former British Prime Minister staring right at your camera.
But exactly that happened for Labour activist Vanessa Price, as David Cameron popped up while she was posing for a photo with her husband, at Wilderness festival.
Cameron reportedly lives close by to the festival site, and so was presumably there at his leisure. However I much prefer to believe that he's one of those myths, almost like the Loch Ness Monster, who pops up every now and again in photos. No one quite believes he's real, but various pictures appear to indicate that he exists.
He stared right down the lens of the camera as he was accompanied by his wife Samantha and daughter Nancy, as they waited for First Aid Kit to take to the stage.
Vanessa actually campaigned against Cameron when he was local MP, and obviously isn't his biggest fan.
"We couldn't believe it. We were taking a selfie and he looked right at the camera," she told the Mirror. "We realised straight away. Steve said 'I think that's David Cameron,' and when we looked properly we saw his wife was there."
She added: "He hung around for about 10 or 15 minutes and then left.

"I live near here and I'm a Labour councillor, I've helped with demonstrations in Witney and stood outside his offices but never set eyes on him.
"I've only ever seen him on the telly, and then he pops up in a field, at a festival."
There's something rather unrealistic about David Cameron being out for a fun-filled day. It's unsettling, if anything.
It's like when he was snapped in Cornwall trying to eat fish and chips just after he'd resigned as PM, and it looked like he didn't have a clue what was going on.
For one, how the fuck is he trying to eat his chippy? He looks like he's never seen a Styrofoam container before, so he's had to look off to watch someone else eat from theirs first.
It does seem, though, that what with festivals and trips to Cornwall, sitting next to a surf school, that he might be in a mid-life crisis.
If you look closely, you can also see by his eyes that he's thinking about what tattoo to get on his lower back, and just how much he should spend on a Harley Davidson.
Staring into the distance, it wouldn't be wrong of us to assume that he's looking at a typically picturesque Cornish skyline and thinking: "Nice place, this. Could pack up, grab the kids, the wife, and move down here, retire for good, start a cafe. 'Dave's Coffee and Pork Loins', yeah, got a ring to it."
I presume his kids have asked if they can have a few surfing lessons, to which he has replied: "Yeah, dude, cowabunga." Then, as his kids prepare for their inaugural surfing session, they turn to see their father dressed in a wet suit, hair pushed back with a headband, sunglasses on, playing a Beach Boys LP on his 2003 Sony CD Walkman.
