Yvette Fielding has revealed spirits made her life hell by playing tricks on her in her home, so much so she had to take a step back from filming 'Most Haunted'
Yvette Fielding almost quit 'Most Haunted' for good after being left a "nervous wreck" from ghosts playing tricks on her.
The 45-year-old paranormal investigator lost weight from anxiety after she was a victim of freak occurrences while filming the show, which included spirits moving all the chairs in her kitchen and scattering her children's clothes around her house.
She exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "I did consider stopping 'Most Haunted' because it was all a bit frightening.
"In the end I couldn't sleep. It affected me very badly, I was a bit of a nervous wreck ... I lost weight and thought, 'Hang on a minute, I need to take a step back.'
"We came down one morning and found all the kitchen chairs on the table in a pyramid. My children's clothes and the laundry were all over the floor, and all the chairs were turned upside down.
"It was a bit scary but it all stopped when we stopped filming 'Most Haunted'. When we started doing the show again, it all started back up."
Yvette also revealed one of her crew members were left scarred from a paranormal attack while filming 'Most Haunted'.
She added: "He had three huge massive cuts from the small of his back right up to his shoulder blade. He was thrown to the floor and covered in bruises ... we've got it all on camera.
"It's when crew members get hurt that you think to yourself, 'Oh my God, this is really not right.' "
As a result of the violent attacks, Yvette and her crew stopped filming the show until they got a priest on board.
She explained: "I went to the church and we got blessed, and now I refuse to do any sort of paranormal investigation without a priest ... you need to really know what you're doing ... and none of us really know what's out there.
"I still can't come up with any logical explanations, and I find it fascinating when you can't reach logical explanations. You think, 'I'm not going mad, this has happened.' "
Despite her concerns, Yvette won't have a priest with her on Halloween night tomorrow (31.10.13) when she films a live stream at one of the UK's most haunted locations to celebrate the return of drama-documentary 'Paranormal Witness'.
