- Three hour live show starts 9pm on Halloween
- Third series of Most Haunted launches next month on Really
Yvette Fielding and the Most Haunted team are back on Really, investigating more gripping and entertaining paranormal mysteries in a brand new ten-part series AND a three-hour Halloween Most Haunted Live special, it was announced today.
During filming, one location - currently under wraps - proved so scary during filming that the Most Haunted team will now return for a three-hour live special.
Presenter Yvette Fielding said,
This is without a doubt the most haunted place we have ever investigated. In fact, after the filming the first two episodes of the new series, I said I would never go back. It's going to be terrifying and viewers can share the screams at the very same time as me!
After filming for series three, Yvette and the rest of the team return this Halloween for a live investigation into the alleged hauntings of the house - rumoured to be haunted by the most violent poltergeist in the UK.
Karl Beattie, Executive Producer, Antix Productions said,
This live special will allow viewers to follow all the action from their sofas. The unassuming property will be rigged with cameras in every room and viewers are invited to interact and participate, to share via email, phone, text and social media anything that they spot that Yvette and the team may not have.
"They can effectively direct the investigation from their own front rooms, choosing the next area for the team to explore and suggesting if they should split up or if someone should venture out alone."
Emma Ayech, General Manager, Really, said,
Most Haunted is hugely popular with our viewers and the first two episodes of this new series are gripping TV. The Live Most Haunted on Halloween will offer our ghost hunting fans the next level of excitement as they will be able to live every moment along with Yvette and the team.
The new series of Most Haunted starts next month. The third series for Really is packed with more edge of the seat, breath-taking moments and phenomena with the team travelling the length and breadth of the UK.
Long-running favourite, Most Haunted, produced by Antix Productions, has captivated audiences around the world, shooting over 300 episodes and producing over 350 hours of live television in reputedly haunted locations.
The Live Halloween special will be executive produced by Helen Nightingale for UKTV and was ordered by Really General Manager Emma Ayech.
The new series of Most Haunted will air on Sundays at 10pm from 18 October. The Halloween Special starts at 9pm on 31 October.
