Really channel to live-stream spooky event on Halloween

Really channel is planning to broadcast a live-stream from 'one of the UK’s most haunted locations' on Halloween.

To mark the return of Paranormal Witness, cameras will transmit live from The Old Rectory, Cheam, in the hope of capturing some paranormal activity.

Yvette Fielding, presenter of the paranormal and supernatural scientist, will host the live-stream (opens in new tab) from The Old Rectory between 8pm and midnight on Thursday.

Really claims the 16th-Century Tudor house in Surrey is notorious for its reputed ghost sightings. Yvette will inform viewers of the house’s history and update them on any unusual goings on at intervals throughout the evening and will also be chatting live with viewers via the hashtag #GhostsOnReally during the event.

Paranormal Witness is new and exclusive on Really, (Sky 248, Virgin 267, Freeview 17) each Thursday at 9pm.
