This couple have shared the shocking moment they discovered that one of the walls in their new home was full of empty bottles of rum.

Cathy and Roy Aukamp, 51 and 52, from New Jersey, were in the process of moving into their new home when they made the shocking discovery.

Only two days after moving into the house, the couple had to deal with a flooded basement after heavy storms in the area and that’s when they made the unbelievable find.

Cathy said: ‘My husband had to remove wet plasterboard and all these bottles came pouring out of one of the walls.’

In a 30 second video revealing their discovery, Roy can be seen kneeling down against the wall of his home as bottles pour out of an opening.

The empty bottles can be seen spilling out onto the floor, while Roy looks on in apparent stunned silence.

He can be seen looking up at the camera as he moves the bottles across the room, before shaking his head.

Meanwhile Cathy can be heard questioning: ‘Thirsty? It’s five o’clock somewhere!’

After the couple shared a clip of their discovery online, many Instagram users were stunned by the mass of bottles.  

One Instagram user commented: ‘You bought a house from Captain Morgan himself!’

Another said: ‘There is nothing funny about this, that poor person had a bad addiction, and I’m sorry that the new chapter in your life had to start off this way with your new home.’

However after Cathy posted the video online, she ended up hearing from the man who originally lived in the home – and had hidden the bottes.

She explained: ‘The person who did it saw the video after it went viral and reached out and said there are hundreds more but also that he is now three years sober.’

Their discovery comes months after another couple uncovered a truly terrifying secret while exploring a new property they had just bought in east Sussex – so frightening it was considered as a horror film set.

Husband and wife Steven, 54, and Carolyn Sparks, 42, discovered a secret room behind a bathroom wall during a contractor survey at a property in Brighton, which contained just a single iron bed. 

The pair needed detailed plans drawn up to refurbish the property and it was during the survey that Steven and the architect found the door to the secret room. 

But when the architect went inside to measure the basement, he failed to mention the creepy single bed that still lay inside.

It was only when the couple went back in to explore with torches in hand that they made the frightening discovery. 

Images show the single iron bed takes up the width of part of the room, which has exposed floors and walls and pipes around it. 

There were also disused boxes stacked high in one corner of the room. 

The room was part of the original Victorian house and was used to store coal. An access hole outside where the coal would have been poured down into can be seen in the images. 

After the property is renovated, the only way to access the basement will be via the hallway, but only to ensure there is access to the pipework in case of emergencies.  

In another twist, the room was considered to become the subject of a horror film.
