Tony Head has revealed that his house is haunted.
The actor told news web site Ananova that the spirit of a young girl haunts his 19th century house in Bristol.
"We saw some photos taken in the 1900s and there she was," said Tony. "Two people have seen her and we've heard her."
"She is not frightening at all, he added". "It's really quite lovely because she is gentle. She got a bit stirred up when we first moved in [and] doesn't suffer fools gladly. We've had some builders in who have taken the mickey and she has made life difficult for them by ruining their measurements."
Can it be true oris Tony going a bit..... potty??

Could someone please translate the phrase "who have taken the mickey" for those of us on the left side of the pond?
Thanks in advance.

Taking the mickey....kinda means taking advantage of a situation.
ie the builders come in to do a job...you leave them on their own...they go and make tea or coffee ect without asking...sit around and don't do their work....
Not very well explained...but its hard to explain it well....

Say no more, I know exactly what you mean.
In the US Navy I worked in a shipyard for a while. One day I went into a utility room to take instrument readings. You could only get to it by climbing down a three-story-tall ladder. When I got to the bottom I found about two dozen shipyard workers hiding from work in a room about the size of an average living room.
Just hanging around smoking cigarettes and drinking coffee - taking the mickey.
Thanks for the help, Translator Pamie.
