Fanny and Dudley Hovis pose for pictures to promote Dudley’s book ‘Errol Flynn’s Ghost Invaded my Wife’ Fanny says that the ghost - pictured here sitting on the footstool - arrived shortly after she fell and cracked her head in the kitchen and now follows her everywhere. They eat, sleep and bathe together. ‘Since he arrived in the house he’s turned our lives upside down,’ said Dudley, who now has to sleep in the spare bedroom. They are currently seeking a publisher.
