Sting admits he has shared his bedroom with more than just his wife Trudie Styler: The singer once woke up to see a figure holding a child standing in a corner.

"I would never have said I believe in ghosts, until I saw one — and I've seen a ghost with my own eyes," the former Police frontman told Britain's BBC Radio in an interview airing tonight.

"I was in bed one night, a very old house I used to live in. And I woke up at three in the morning, bolt upright, looked into the corner of the room and thought I saw Trudie standing there with a child — our child — in her arms, staring at me.

"And I thought 'well, that's strange, why is she standing in a corner, staring at me?'. And I then reached next to me and there was Trudie, and I suddenly got this terrible chill. And she woke up and said 'Gosh, who is that?' and she saw this woman and a child in the corner of the room."

Sting, who sang "Spirits In The Material World" in the 1980s and recorded a Police album called Ghosts in the Machine, said he also experienced other mysterious goings on.


He added: "A lot of things happened in that house, a lot of flying objects and voices and strange, strange things happened.

"When you live in old houses you get this energy there. Intellectually, no I don't believe in them (ghosts), but I've experienced them on an emotional level."
