The Daily Star has fallen in love with some 'black-eyed ghost children' from Cannock Chase in the Midlands. Last week the paper ran three front page stories about them:
Clearly the Star was happy with the sales generated and the ease with which these tall tales could be written. So much so that the paper has followed up with a further two ghost stories. Though just to be on the safe side they have also woven in some popular TV shows for good measure.
First came news that the X Factor house is haunted...
And then, as luck would have it, news broke on Thursday that Strictly Come Dancing is also being haunted by the black-eyed ghost children with a thing for Saturday night television shows...
Nobody was more surprised by this latest news than Strictly contestant Caroline Flack who the Star had written into their story. The Daily Star says "Caroline Flack was menaced by the evil spirit during a practice session and even took a photo".
To which Flack responded on Twitter: "I have no idea what this story is."
Perhaps Flack was just so scared she has repressed her memories of the terrifying ordeal.
