    She recalls how her first bizarre encounter came following the icon’s burial on December 3, 2005, after his death aged just 59. had struggled with alcoholism for years

    On the day of George’s funeral, Alex was staying at a hotel in Belfast and just as she was leaving, the shower suddenly turned on, on its own.

    After being shown the footage of the moving book, a shocked Alex says: ‘I don’t thank that’s a coincidence. I’ve got so many books on that bookshelf. I’ve got books on films, 骨董品, all different autobiographies and yet the book that shot out was George’s.

    ‘That moment made me really think he could have been one of the spirits… Something like that would be typical George.’

    When asked if she was surprised that her ex-husband’s ‘spirit’ apparently made his introduction this way, she says she isn’t.

    Branding him a ‘cheeky monkey’, she explains that she’d assumed the spirit was a child up until this point because of the ‘mischievous’ behaviour she says she had witnessed.
