Yvette Fielding pays VERY curt tribute to her Most Haunted co-star Derek Acorah

Most Haunted's Yvette Fielding has issued a blunt tribute to her late co-host Derek Acorah after the pair fell out over a botched episode of the show over a decade ago.

Acorah died last night aged 69 after he got a sepsis infection following a short battle with pneumonia.

Ms Fielding, 51, who also presented Blue Peter, tweeted: 'Our condolences go out to Derek’s family at this time x.'


But resident parapsychologist Dr Ciaran O'Keeffe said he had set up Acorah by having other crew members feed him false information about spirits in various locations.

Dr O'Keeffe invented a long-dead South African jailer called Kreed Kafer - an anagram of Derek Faker - and said he was stunned when the TV medium 'got possessed by my fictional character' at Bodmin Jail.

In 2006, after Acorah was booted off the show, Ms Fielding told Metro: 'We tell people everything is real, then it turns out he was a fake, so he had to go.'

Acorah fired back, branding Fielding 'egotistical' and 'big-headed'.

Gwen, Acorah's second wife, revealed he had died in a heart-breaking post on his official Facebook account this morning.

Derek Acorah obituary
Spirit medium who found fame in the TV series Most Haunted

As television’s most famous spirit medium and ghost hunter, Derek Acorah, who has died of sepsis aged 69, inevitably attracted controversy. He split opinion among viewers, who either believed in the paranormal and revelled in his “insights” or considered him a fake and a fraud.

A visit to Samlesbury Hall, a medieval manor house in Lancashire, was typical of the Acorah spookfest. He entered to the sound of “girlish laughter”, sensing he was in a former educational establishment, he wrote in his 2004 autobiography, The Psychic Adventures of Derek Acorah. “The energy around me changed and I felt as though I was in an inn. Once more there was laughter around me, but this time it was accompanied by the smell of ale and roasting meats in the huge fireplace … Then I heard a loud bang! ‘Somebody shot themselves here,’ I said.” Acorah came up with a name, Sir John Southworth, adding that he knew the man had suffered at the hands of witch-hunters.

He made his name as the resident medium in the first six series of the TV programme Most Haunted (2002-05), alongside its presenter, Yvette Fielding, and her team of ghost hunters – an astrologer, an anthropologist, a parapsychologist and a medical doctor. They spent nights at stately homes and castles around Britain reputed to be haunted, and purported to feel or hear the supernatural. The show was one of the reality programmes that helped Living TV to become a leading British non-terrestrial channel.

However, Acorah’s credibility was questioned in 2005 when Most Haunted’s parapsychologist, Ciarán O’Keeffe, accused him of being a fake. He claimed that he fed Acorah false information about spirits, including a dead South African jailer called Kreed Kafer – an anagram of “Derek Faker” – at Bodmin Jail, Cornwall, then saw the medium “possessed” by him.

Derek Acorah's heartbroken widow claims she is talking to him beyond the grave

The widow of celebrity medium Derek Acorah is “in shock” – but says she’s already talking to him ­beyond the grave.

Heartbroken Gwen said she was blindsided by Derek’s sudden death – days after they discussed his 70th birthday plans.

In her first interview, Gwen, 71, told the Sunday People: “Derek believed life goes on in another dimension. There’s an element of comfort in that because it’s not a big blank wall and he’s gone.

“I keep thinking I must pick up the phone and tell Derek. I ­actually do tell him. I talk to him.

“People may think I’m mad. I’ve nagged him all his life so why shouldn’t I continue?”
