Half of Brits believe in ghosts and one in five have been haunted

Posted by K R on

Research from truTV released to mark the launch of new show Paranormal Survivor, which premieres tonight (Wednesday February 10) at 9pm, has revealed that 18% of Brits claim to have experienced paranormal activity – with an incredible 11% saying they have been molested by a ghost and 5% admitting to moving house due to hauntings. Of those who had experienced ghostly or paranormal visitors to their home, one in five (20%) had an unexplained feeling of being touched, a quarter (24%) had felt that they were being watched and 19% had felt the presence of a deceased friend or family member. A surprising 36% said that they would welcome the presence of a dead loved one in their home, with a further 20% saying they would be excited to see a spirit. Almost half said that they would welcome a ghost in to their home by saying ‘hello’, although 13% said they would run away in fear if they encountered a presence from the other side. Steve Hornsey, director of general entertainment at truTV UK, said: “Our new show Paranormal Survivor will bring some phenomenal real-life ghost stories in to the living rooms of the UK – so truTV was keen to find out how many Brits had experienced the paranormal first-hand. We weren’t disappointed. We were stunned to see how many people have experienced ghostly goings on, and because of the incredible numbers of reported hauntings happening in the UK we’ve recruited expert psychic medium Grant Colyer to help us protect our homes from the paranormal. Grant Colyer, renowned psychic medium, said “The results didn’t surprise me at all, Britain has a history of terrifying hauntings and I’m busier than ever helping exorcise demons and spirits that haven’t fully passed over. Lots of people will experience the supernatural at some point in their life, so I’ve worked with truTV to create a guide to help Brits banish ghosts and reclaim their home from unwanted spirits. For the 50% of the UK who that said they love watching shows about ghosts, Paranormal Survivor will show some of the terrifying experiences of people who have been unlucky enough to have seen it first-hand.” Read More: Hastings and St. Leonards Observer
