Every now and again I'm lucky enough to be treated to the televisual phenomonon that is 'Most Haunted'. This TV show, which is tucked away on one of the dust-bunny channels round the back of the TV set, is actually phenomenally successful with a great many ardent fans.
Unfortunately I am not one of them.
The show is hosted by Yvette Fielding (once of Blue Peter) who spends her time 'communicating' with spirits by asking them to tap a number of times (like a counting horse) when she is not screaming and flapping like a ten year old. The programme is filmed in night vision for extra spookiness (so everyone's eyeballs take on a rabid dog look) as they fumble their way around various old houses and castles up and down the country.
They are brilliant at what they do and Yvette Fielding and her husband Karl have made a tidy sum from the programme format.
However after 9 years or so, for all their technology and hours of footage they don't seem to have spotted anything more compelling than a possible 'orb' (ie a moth) on film.
Every show is the same! It is like Groundhog Day and it drives me insane.
The only saving grace is that if I endure this - then I can earn credits to watch the football. Mind you, sometimes watching my team is like a horror show. Boo
