It seems Kate Langbroek might have needed to call on an exorcist when she made the big move to Italy.

The Australian Hit Network radio host moved to Italy with her family in January, and is soon to move into an apartment in an 800-year-old palazzo in the city of Bologna.

But judging by a very creepy selfie Langbroek posted yesterday, her family may be sharing the historic home with some ghostly visitors.

Langbroek had taken visiting friend Tash Prendergast on a tour of the apartment, the pair posing for a selfie in front of a mirror Langbroek believed dated back to the 1700s.


"So much age. I said to Tash 'I always think if I turn around really quickly, I'll be able to see the past in this mirror …'," Langbroek told her Instagram followers.

"So we were laughing, and decided to take a selfie to see if anything would appear. Look over my head. WTF is that??? Also, I hope if that white apparition is a ghost that it at least pitches in with the renos so we can finally move in."

Sure enough, above Langbroek's head is what appears to be a white hooded figure, with two black marks for eyes:

Langbroek's post has been flooded with comments, including several from horrified celeb friends: "Holy s**t. Is that for real?" asked Gogglebox star Yvie Jones. "Stop it!" wrote TV presenter Sally Obermeder.

"You pranking?" asked Langbroek's radio co-host Dave Hughes (she responded that no, she was not).

Others also pointed out what appears to be a smaller figure in black beside the white figure. Others said the figure closest to the window "looks like a nun with rosary beads around her neck".

The creepy photo had other followers encouraging Langbroek to "GET OUT!" or "Burn the whole thing down and don't look back".

One commenter suggested Langbroek had in fact captured a whole posse of ghosts in her photo.


"Oh Kate. There's way more than one entity in this photo! There's quite a few, though not as obvious as the main one. Blow up the pic on your laptop and play with the contrast and colours, etc, to see the full scope. There's at least 4. You are extremely lucky to have this experience!"

Lucky is one word for it …

Langbroek opened up about her decision to move her family to Italy during an appearance on The Project in January.

"I can't tell you why because I've got NFI (no f**king idea), but at the time it seemed like a good idea that we take our four kids children and go live in Italy for a year," she said.

In 2017, Langbroek and her co-host paid of their Kiwi producer's $41,000 student loan, which had ballooned to over $80,000 with interest and penalties.

Their producer Sacha French, who has produced their Hughesy and Kate show for 15 years at the time, was overwhelmed when Hughes and Langbroek sprang their surprise gift live on air, going halves on paying off the $80,000.

"I'm a single mum. It's going to make a massive difference in my life," she told the Herald this morning.

"I can look at buying something [a home] now. It's very generous, I'm so overwhelmed."
