Kilts, ghosts, Fingelly Manor, oh my!

from the novel, Lights, Camera, Poltergeist! by

Hi and thank you for inviting me to your blog. My name is Fae and some of you will know me as one of the presenters from the popular TV show: Ghost UK.

Ghost UK, if you haven’t seen it, is a pre-recorded series aired in a variety of locations throughout the UK and Ireland. We also do live ‘seasonal’ shows like Valentine’s day, Halloween etc. I’m asked questions all the time about the show so I thought I’d try and answer the most common for you.

The big one I am asked is: are the ghostly goings-on real?

Ghost UK prides itself on factual reporting. If we discover something fake then we’ll reveal it. We research to make sure we only report the real deal. There have only been a couple of shows where people have tried to fool us. You can read about one of them in Lights, Camera, Poltergeist!

Another popular question I am asked is: do I believe in ghosts?

You bet I do! I’ve seen and heard things which have no rational explanation. Like the time in Cue Me In, when I was attempting to be selected as a presenter for Ghost UK. That Welsh Castle had a green lady ghost that was the spitting image of my sister Izzy. There were howling dogs, weird green lights and a mysterious library. That was my first encounter with the unknown. My heart still races when I think about going down that secret passage inside the castle walls. I wasn’t sure if I would make it out alive at the other end!

I’m also asked if Victor, our guest medium, in Lights, Camera, Poltergeist! is genuine. I can tell you, he scares me half to death. One minute he’s a nice normal elderly man with a fondness for wearing black suits, the next, he’s talking to dead people. He’s amazingly accurate. In Lights, Camera, Poltergeist! he was able to tell the real ghost from the fake, so yes, he’s genuine.

I couldn’t do half the things I do on the show, though, without John ‘Flash’ Flannigan. He’s my tech guy and also my boyfriend. Although he reckons I’ve aged him about fifty years since we started working together.

In Lights, Camera, Poltergeist! I’d planned a lovely romantic Valentine’s evening. You know, Italian restaurant, nice walk by the river, candles and romance. But we ended up in a creepy Scottish Manor House filming a live show!

What a show it was though! Wow, things certainly did get wild at Fingelly Manor. There aren’t many guys who would put up with that kind of lifestyle. So, I think John’s a keeper.

What’s next for me? Well, I’m contracted to record some more episodes of Ghost UK so you’ll probably be able to read more of my adventures in the future. I just hope I don’t end up anywhere that’s too scary - even for me!

Things don’t just go bump in the night, sometimes they throw tea cups!
