Most Haunted dropped by Sky Living
Story by Jack Foley
PARANORMAL favourite Most Haunted has been axed by Sky Living.
The show, hosted by Yvette Fielding, examined alleged paranormal activities across the country and ran to over nine seasons.
Fielding quit the show last year but Sky Living did not make an immediate decision on its future.
It has now confirmed in a statement that it will be returning the rights for the show to production company Antix, which is run by Fielding and her husband Karl Beattie.
The statement reads: “We have decided not to recommission Most Haunted and will be giving Antix Productions the right to take it to another channel if they wish.
“We would like to thank Yvette Fielding and Karl Beattie for all of their hard work and commitment over the years.
“Like every commercial TV channel, Sky Living is constantly developing new ideas. We recognise our customers’ appetite for paranormal programming and have recently aired a series about popular psychic Sally Morgan and original scripted drama Bedlam, which proved to be the channel’s most successful commissioned series in its history.
“As well as paranormal, the channel will build on other successful genres, from scripted comedy to real-life relationships, which we know our customers also enjoy.”
