Ever wondered how it feels to cross over to the other side? Yvette Fielding has revealed the one spine-tingling word that ghosts she has communicated with on Most Haunted have used to describe the sensation of dying.
Now in its 18th series, Most Haunted has conducted its fair share of vigils, séances and spiritual experiments. And now presenter Yvette Fielding has revealed the one word that has continually cropped up when they have made contact with a spirit and asked what it’s like to die.
“To be able to sit in a room and have a conversation with someone who has died is incredible,” the star of the show said. “We always ask a ghost that we are able to communicate with for life advice. They say things like ‘be happy’ or ‘laugh more’.
“And whenever we ask them what it’s like to cross over, the same word always comes up: bliss.”
The show has seen Yvette and her team showcase a variety of methods of communication, from ouija boards to séances to the use of EPG machines.
“When we get a voice on the EPG machine, and then we get it verified, it’s amazing,” Yvette enthused. “In the current series, we were at Shrewsbury Prison. And we pick up a voice. I think they’re saying ‘listen listen’ but it turned out they were saying their name was ‘Wilson’. We then found out there was a prisoner called Wilson there once. That’s when you go ‘Oh my God, this is real, not imagining it’.”
The 47-year-old presenter knows that the show has received negative attention, and accusations of being fake – especially when it comes to the spiritual mediums they have used in the past. But because of this, they have stopped using psychics in their investigations.
“There are fantastic psychics and mediums out there that do have the gift. But there are some that don’t,” she said. “You can’t be 100 per cent sure that they haven’t used social media to find stuff out. Now we keep it science based, for the integrity of the show and for the fans.
“We actually get more activity without a medium. They can often derail an investigation. You feel the need to follow their lead. And some have led us on a merry dance.”
So passionate about the show, Yvette admitted that she has let the skeptics get her down in the past.
She said: “When we are accused of being fake it makes me want to cry. And I have cried. But then I think ‘stuff it’. We believe it. It’s important for us to keep our belief. People only say it’s fake as they have no other explanation; it’s easier to say it’s fake than to believe it.”
The ex-I’m A Celebrity contestant also mentioned how Paul O Grady, who often takes part in Most Haunted’s live episodes, has always advised her not to listen to negative remarks.
“When we communicate with the dead, we have heard tapping, had names spelled out, dates they have died. We have even played noughts and crosses with ghosts,” Yvette concluded. “I’m not scared of death or dying because of it. I’m going to have one hell of a time when I pop my clogs.”
