Charley Boorman was reduced to tears by a haunted house in THORPE PARK last night (16.10.08).
The 'Long Way Down' star - who appeared alongside pal Ewan McGregor in the show which saw the pair embark on a 19,000-mile motorcycle journey from London to New York - claimed it was his daughters Doone, 12, and Kinvara, 11, who were upset by the creepy Se7en, Hellgate, The Asylum and The Curse mazes at the theme park's exclusive Fright Nights Party.
He said: "It was very scary. The guys really jump out at you. My daughters were crying."
But a friend of the 42-year-old adventurer was quick to interject, adding to BANG Showbiz: "Erm... actually, it was Charlie who was crying."
Other celebrities at the event included 'The Football Factory' actor Danny Dyer and showbiz couple Jamie Winstone and Alfie Allen.
Model Alice Dellal, 'EastEnders' actress Charlie Brooks and DJ and lingerie model Daisy Lowe also braved the scary bash.
The park's Marketing Director, Carolyn London, said: "We are used to seeing celebrities looking glamorous and gorgeous so it was great fun to see some of our celebrity guests looking absolutely terrified!"
THORPE PARK's Fright Nights theme runs until November 2.
