BESTIE'S BACK ON
The boozy Manchester United icon's widow Alex,
his mistress Gina Devivo and his last lover Ros
Hollidge have all reported haunting experiences.
And last night George's agent and best pal Phil
Hughes said he also got spooked when an unseen
hand mysteriously moved his DRINKS CABINET!
Mum-of-two Gina was so freaked out she turned
to a medium — that's a psychic not a sherry — who
insisted this week that Best IS in contact from
beyond the grave, a year after his death.
"I thought I was going nuts when weird things
started to happen in my house," said blonde Gina.
"But after seeing the spiritualist and hearing
that Ros, Alex and Phil have all had similar
experiences, I'm 100 per cent certain it's
In life, womaniser Best hopped between Alex,
Gina and Ros. In death his mischievous spirit
GINA panicked when glasses flew around
her home, her TV flipped over, a smiling vision of
George appeared on her bed and an invisible
footballer played keepy-uppy in her garden — the
ball rising 20 times without touching the ground!
Now Phil, Alex and Ros have all found their
passports mysteriously missing.
George's family and friends shed tears at his
grave last week on the first anniversary of his
death at 59 following years of alcohol abuse.
But lover Gina, 35, is convinced his spirit is
alive and kicking at her council house in Ewell,
"It started with the lights going on and off
and doors opening and shutting," she told us. "I'd
see the door handle go frantically up and down but
there was no one on the other side.
"Then I'd hear my letterbox banging between
11.15pm and midnight—the time George used to turn
up drunk. Again there was no one there. It has
since got increasingly weird. I found my TV upside
down and saw glasses fly across the room and smash
"One day I was in my kitchen when I saw a
football, one that George bought for my daughters,
bounce up and down in the garden without touching
the ground. It must have done it over 20 times. I
was absolutely speechless.
"I then started to hear George's voice. And one
night I actually saw him in my bed. I was
"But he wasn't the old George that I knew. He
looked in his prime, in his thirties and in a red
top. He was smiling at me, looking like Jesus with
a beard and long, dark wavy hair. I was so freaked
I ran out and shouted to my neighbour about what
"George always said he'd come back and haunt me
one day. Now he's keeping his word."
Worried Gina has visited medium Ivan Lee twice
at Wimbledon Spiritualist Church. She stressed:
"The first time I didn't tell him who I wanted to
contact. But he suddenly said, ‘I've got a man.
I've got a George here.'
"He told me so many things only George would
have known about—like the elephant ornament he
"The medium said George was even complaining
about cushions and teddy bears all over my bed.
George used to hate that and threw them around the
room when he was drunk."
Psychic Ivan, 44, later told the News of
the World: "George wants Gina to know
there's life after death and he's fine.
"He clearly has a great sense of humour and
likes to play up now and then by visiting her. But
he repeatedly said he was sorry for the way he
treated Gina. He also spoke of his concern for his
Revealing spine-tingling happenings at her
Surbiton home, George's final fling Ros Hollidge
admitted: "It's hard enough to deal with his
death, let alone discuss this. I don't want to
sound like a loony. It started the night he died.
"George once gave me a CD of ‘She' by Elvis
Costello and it became our favourite song. On the
evening he passed away I switched everything off
and two close friends took me out for a quick
drink as I was very upset.
"When I came back half an hour later that song
was blaring through the house. Then my lights and
TV kept going on and off and doors flew open and
slammed of their own accord. It's still going on.
George would absolutely love causing a bit of
havoc like this."
Former air hostess Alex Best, 34—who divorced
George after 10 years following his affair with
Gina—told us: "Funny things did happen after
George died, mostly involving water.
"Taps went on in the middle of the night in our
converted barn. And as I left my hotel room for
George's funeral the shower just turned itself on
full blast and I couldn't shut it off. My passport
also went missing. I can't believe the same
thing's happened to Phil and Ros. It leaves me
Last night George's pal Phil Hughes, who
supported him to the end, described the strange
goings-on at his Surrey home.
He said: "When George stayed at my house he'd
never touch any booze from my drinks cabinet.
"All my bottles of brandy, scotch and Bacardi
were on a triangular shelf which sits rock-solid
on pegs in a corner cupboard in the front room.
"But recently I found the shelf had somehow
gone underneath the pegs and flipped.
"But not one bottle had fallen over. They were
all standing up in a perfect line. It really
"I did believe I'd see George again one day.
But not in this world."
Sounds like football wizard George might be
playing a whole new game—for Wraith Rovers.
