A Jack Sparrow impersonator has married her dream man – a Haitian pirate who died in the 18th century, who she has never seen.
Amanda Teague from Drogheda, County Louth, married the ghost, who is also named Jack, and the two go on dates just like a regular married couple.
The unlikely pair had to sail a boat away from Ireland into international waters so that the marriage would be legal.

A psychic said ‘I do’ for Jack.
Amanda said: ‘He is my soulmate. I am so happy. It is the perfect kind of relationship for me,’ reports the Daily Star.
Although Amanda cannot see her husband, she believes he looks like Captain Jack Sparrow from Pirates of the Caribbean. He has told her he is black with jet-black hair.

She added that she wanted to spread awareness about the novel type of pairing. ‘There are a lot of people out there who don’t know about spiritual relationships, but it could be right for them.
‘I want to get the message out there.’
The mother-of-five, who was married previously, says that she has never felt a connection to anyone like the one she has with her new husband, who was left at the altar in his previous life.
The Haitian pirate was killed in his earlier life for his crimes.
She says she felt his presence, and eventually the pair began talking and got to know each other. She explains, ‘The more I learned about him, the more I liked him.’
In 2015, Amanda spent over £4,000 to turn herself into Captain Jack Sparrow – getting tattoos, pirate-style dreadlocks and gold-plated teeth in a bid to mimic the character

Eventually, Jack suggested the two be together, and Amanda began researching if it was possible, and found that ‘a lot of people’ are in spiritual relationships.
In 2015, Amanda legally changed her name to Amanda Sparrow and spent over £4,000 turning herself into Captain Jack Sparrow.
She made the transformation after watching the film franchise for the first time – when her 13-year-old daughter said that she was just like Johnny Depp’s distinctive character.

Amanda has even got tattoos like the drunken sailor, and got pirate-style dreadlocks and gold-plated teeth in a bid to mimic the character. She set up her impersonator business off the back of the look.
Amanda, said: ‘My daughter Carla Rose screamed in front of the TV “Mum you are so much like Jack Sparrow!” and I was like – “who is Jack Sparrow?”
‘I settled down to watch 15 minutes with her because it was on Sky and I was instantly hooked.
‘The way he gets on with life, his freedom and his walk is so much like me in personality – I’m quite masculine and have that sense.
‘The way he deals with things is identical to me. I just really related to him.’
