- The investigation takes the team to a location said to be haunted by one of the most violent poltergeists in the world
Most Haunted Live, a special event for this Halloween (31st October) on Really, is to be co-hosted by Rylan Clark with presenter Jamie East. Throughout the evening they will be joined by special guests including Paul O'Grady. And whilst they are in the neighbouring studio, Yvette Fielding will lead the investigative team within the location. A location said to be haunted by one of the most violent poltergeists in the world.
This live special will be a fully interactive experience with viewers able to inform the investigation via social media. As cameras are rigged in every room throughout the unassuming property, viewers will have access to multiple additional live feeds that will be streamed online.
Yvette Fielding said,
This will be the first time the fans can really REALLY get involved in the show. It's perfect for Halloween so if you want to hide behind your cushion and turn all the lights off then this is the show to tune into. If this doesn't scare you, nothing will!
Rylan Clark commented,
I'm a big Most Haunted fan so it's amazing to be co-hosting this live Halloween special. I like a Halloween that's full of more treats than tricks so I'm hoping for a friendly ghost. Although I'm not banking on it. What I do know is that it's going to be a big night, I'm going to try to be brave and I'm glad that we're all in it together.
Paul O'Grady said,
I am always up for a bit of ghost-hunting - especially a violent poltergeist! Right up my street!!!
Jamie East added,
Most Haunted live is going to be one of the most exciting yet terrifying experiences of my life - and I speak as a man who once sat in Rylan's dressing room.
Throughout the evening Rylan will also be joined by in studio guests, from sceptics to believers to the curious, to discuss both the events as they unfold and the history of this most haunted of houses, reputedly haunted by one of the world's most violent poltergeists.
