Christine Lampard and Matt Richardson return for TV's most entertaining scare fest, Celebrity Haunted Mansion, coming live to W from Wednesday 21st February.
For five nights, two paranormal experts will each lead a team of celebrities as they face a variety of spooktacular challenges in a truly terrifying haunted gothic mansion. Each night, there will be a climactic live ghost hunt testing bravery and investigation skills to the limit - where two of our stars will have to give up the ghost... and leave the show. But who will survive until the final night - to become the champion celebrity ghost hunter...?
For an extra supernatural treat, the first episode will be simulcast on Really, UKTV's free-to-air channel, so its loyal paranormal fans can get a slice of the action.
Matt Richardson will host sister show High Spirits, which will air at 7pm every night on W. This special show will give viewers a chance to catch-up on the previous night's creepy occurrences and set the scene for the chilling challenges that will be set in that night's main show.
Ten celebrities will face their fears in Celebrity Haunted Mansion, those brave enough to dare enter the mansion will be announced closer to transmission.
Celebrity Haunted Mansion will air on for five nights from Wednesday 21st February at 9pm on W, with the first night also live on Really.
