Haunted Coronation Street
Remember the Corrie episode where Norris suspects the Kabin is haunted and holds a séance with Rita, Blanche and Betty?
In a case of life imitating art, Corrie bosses organized a séance on set after several employees claimed to have had eerie encounters at Granada studios.
Psychics were summoned after staff complained of inexplicable noises, bumps and drops in temperature.
The candlelit session lasted seven hours during the night, and was attended by Sue Cleaver (our Eileen Grimshaw) and Simon Gregson (our Steve McDonald) and other Corrie staff.
This isn’t the first ghost-busting on the set. Psychics were brought in five years ago after people claimed they had seen the ghost of former character Ena Sharples.
And in a case of art imitating life, Corrie's most recent seance was filmed for Living TV show 'Most Haunted' and will be screened later this year.
No news as to whether or not the Ouija board techniques scared away the spirits. Maybe they should call in Charlie Stubbs the builder. Afterall, wasn’t it a cracked wall causing all those ghostly goings-on in the Kabin?
