As a skeptical paranormal researcher and investigator, I find most ghost shows a little bit hard to take seriously. Most Haunted in its history has had some supposedly “fake” Physics.
Derek Acorah was supposedly outed in a live show by a false ghost made up by the team called Kreed Kafer, an anagram of Derek Faker.
Most Haunted and Yvette and Karl really have stood firm on how they want the show to be real and nothing faked and so as a Paranormal TV show, Most Haunted has stood the test of time and is well into double figures for its series.
Allot of this is due to the on-screen chemistry of the team. Karl and Yvette (of Blue Peter fame) pictured here to the right are the lead 2 investigators. They are also husband and wife.
This footage that has exploded onto the paranormal community is the most compelling, “alleged”, Ghostly Apparitions we have ever seen.
The “alleged” apparition clearly walks up the stairs and has arms and legs and its pretty cool evidence.
However, yes, I can’t help it. The skeptic in me does question the actions of Stuart who runs after the apparition and looks past an open door before directing Karl into an empty room.
I love the show, the cast, and Stuart, I am not making an accusation but the skeptic in me immediately questioned what Stuart looked at past the open door before directing Karl into the side room.
Was he making sure the person playing a part got out okay?
I’m writing this without seeing the entire show as I have only yet seen the clips online so I might not have the full information on the layout of the corridor, he could of been checking inf the apparition had passed through the door and onward and perhaps they continued on after what we see in the clip.
Also, the outline and the gait of the apparition makes me question it. It more resembles a crew member wearing baggy jeans and a hoody, darker clothes which on night vision would show up lighter. It just doesn’t feel like a long-dead ghost of long past. Granted it could be someone recently deceased, its just a strange apparition outline.
Again, we love Most Haunted and so want it to be real but I just have that skeptical voice in my head just getting at me so I have to put it out there.
Also the show does carry a declaration that its for entertainment purposes only so it makes it harder to take this as real evidence.
It will definitely raise interest in the field and help the shows ratings, neither of which are a bad thing but we at V.I.P.S. really really want it to be real too.

Likely faked, this like an alleged Queen Mary Apparition were both when camera’s had been set down on a surface, this is because its hard to do video overlay with a shaky camera. Queen Mary footage is widely seen as a hoax now.
