In this episode:

Intro :00

Yvette Fielding has been crowned by many as “Queen of the Paranormal”, “Queen of the Night”, or even “First Lady of the Paranormal.” Listeners from the US will no doubt know Yvette as the star of the hit paranormal TV series from the UK, Most Haunted. She and her husband, Karl Beattie, first created and produced the show in 2002, making them true pioneers in paranormal TV. They’ve been producing the show ever since. If you’re a listener outside of the US, you may actually know Yvette originally from Blue Peter, a British TV show, which is the longest-running children's TV show in the world. Yvette was the youngest presenter ever on that show, and she even interviewed Princess Diana! She’s the author of a series of new young adult fiction, and she has a memoir coming out next year! :50
