Now you may remember that last year we reported on 38-year old singer, Rocker Brocade who married Eduardo, the ghost of a Victorian soldier last Halloween
And the wedding ceremony itself led to some distasteful comments from the groom: “The ceremony had an open invite to the living and the dead, which saw the likes of Marilyn Monroe, Elvis and Henry VIII arrive to the chapel.
“Edwardo just couldn’t resist winding me up and made an inappropriate comment about Marilyn Monroe looking hot.
“I was like, ‘Wow really? It’s our wedding day’. The comment completely ruined my evening.”
“When we arrived to our hotel he suggested ordering 12 bottles of the best champagne to the room knowing that I have to pick up the bill!”
The honeymoon didn’t set pulses racing either. Brocarde got covered in sand and ended up with a cone of ice cream being pushed in her face, after Edwardo tried to get feisty with her on the beach and roll around near the sea.
Edwardo thought he was being passionate and romantic by wrestling me to the ground to frolic in the sand, but I was trying to share my ice cream with him and it went everywhere, all over my face, in my hair and the of course the sand stuck to it so I looked like I’d had a fight with a giant seagull.”
And Eduardo reportedly got really jealous at Christmas, continually knocking over the Christmas tree and tried to board up the chimney to prevent Santa coming down.
So as you can see things didn’t work out and she is now seeking a separation.- but he is not willing to let her go and is making her life a living hell.
She turned to a medium for marriage counselling at the start of the year, but Edwardo did not take it seriously is making her life a ‘living hell’ from the other side.
Initially Brocade told her ghost husband that she wanted to see him ‘taking their relationship more seriously’ but all that happened was he ended up ‘haunting’ her by using the ‘screams of a crying baby’.
“I am at the end of my tether. I don’t want to admit defeat, but it feels like being married to a ghost doesn’t work,’ she said and is now considering using an exorcist to rid him for good.
Well good luck with that then!
Margaret Mills took as her subject today, a totally incompetent map maker from Ilford named, Henry Joist.
Dating from around 1651, were you to follow the directions on his maps, you would be very fortunate indeed if you ever arrived at your intended destination.
This is akin to some SAT NAVS today that proudly proclaim that, “You have arrived at your destination” whilst dumping you in a field of cows, miles from anywhere.
The only plus point is that if you could actually get hold of one of his creations, it would probably be worth a small fortune now!
Listen again here to what Margaret had to say about this worthy gentleman: –
See you again in a couple of weeks,
