Flash shadow

Lightroom Version
Classic 11.3.1
Operating System
  1. macOS 12 Monterey
Recently used the flash to take couple of shots of two dancers. Unfortunately a shadow right behind the head has appeared on a wall behind.
Trying to remove using Lightroom Classic 11.3.1 and the New Masking and or Brush tools Getting in a mess. I think I need to remove the colour cast and replace with the nearest to the wall. But am struggling to find out how. Spent hours searching Adobe and YouTube videos but nothing seems to cover the problem.
Any helpful ideas.

Maybe you should post the image? This is probably something that is easier to do in Photoshop.
