A ghostly figure can be seen emerging from a mass grave during a segment on James May’s new travel show. Eagle-eyed viewers who had settled down to watch the new Amazon Prime show ‘James May: Our Man in Italy’ this week got more than they bargained for when they spotted a mysterious figure in the background while May was speaking to the camera at the site of a mass grave.
The ghostly presents, which resembles a translucent white entity, seems to materialize out of thin air, walk towards the right and then vanish again without a trace.
A clip of the sighting went viral and was picked up by numerous news outlets. Even James May himself got in on the debate.
“My thanks to everyone who has pointed out the ‘ghost’ in ep3 of my new Italy series,” he wrote.
“Nobody saw it at the time, so it’s either a real ghost or (more likely but also more boring) just a bit of digital file corruption.”
