An amused homeowner has shared a photo of the ‘hysterical’ moment her partner fell through the ceiling while renovating their house.
In the hilarious snap, which Ashleigh Poulter, from the UK, shared to Facebook group Mrs Hinch Cleaning Tips, the man’s head can be seen peering down through the newly cracked ceiling, into the hallway.
‘We’re in the middle of renovating our house,’ explained Ashleigh. ‘I spent all morning cleaning up the dust from taking out the stairs. Within two actual minutes of me stopping. He falls through the ceiling and well…you can imagine the dust.’
And unsurprisingly, social media users were quick to take to the comments section – and seemed as amused as they were concerned.
‘This picture has literally made my night,’ commented one, while another wrote: ‘I’m in stitches. This is brilliant. P.s hope he is OK.’

Alongside the image, Ashleigh explained: ‘I spent all morning cleaning up the dust from taking out the stairs, within two 2 actual minutes of me stopping. He falls through the ceiling and well. You can imagine the dust’ (pictured)
A third agreed: ‘I shouldn’t laugh but I couldn’t help myself,’ while a fourth added: ‘Omg I am in agony but this has made me laugh so hard. Glad he is OK.’
Ashleigh went on to clarify how her other half was ‘absolutely fine’ and they both had a good laugh about it after.
She added: ‘We’ve had so many issues with the house so far, we’ve had no choice but to laugh and get the hoover back out. I’m so pleased it’s made everyone giggle.’
The post has since racked up over 3,000 likes, with some admitting they had to do a double-take after initially thinking the head looked like a baby.
Another amused social media user joked: ‘I’m sorry…this is hysterical…for you…not so much’ (pictured)
‘Thought it was a baby’s head until I flipped it and saw a beard,’ penned one, while a second agreed: ‘Omg I didn’t know what I was looking at…glad I read the explanation. Without glasses it looked like a baby on the ceiling.’
Meanwhile, others used the post as an excuse to reveal some of renovation faux pas their other halves have experienced.
‘Oh god. My hubby fell through the loft, so much mess! You have my sympathies,’ commented one, while another recalled: ‘I once asked my husband to take the tiles off the wall in the bathroom. Instead he managed to take the wall off.’
A further tagged a friend and added: ‘Reminded me of the story of Mark’s legs hanging through your ceiling.’
