Halloween 2016 is about to get even scarier as Most Haunted embarks on a two-hour special from HMP Shrewsbury in an exclusive UKTV Play event, it was announced today.

Most Haunted is renowned for its Halloween spectaculars, and for 2016 Yvette Fielding and her Most Haunted Team are returning to the deserted prison which Yvette vowed never to set foot in again.

HMP Shrewsbury proved itself to be a formidable place in the last series in a three-part special when Yvette experienced some of the most frightening activity in the 15 year history of Most Haunted. The deserted prison has a history of executions, dead inmates and Yvette is bravely returning to face the apparitions, dark shadows and paranormal activity that many believe still exist there.

Yvette said: “HMP Shrewsbury is one of the scariest places I have ever been to, and to go back there for this uncut and as live Most Haunted Halloween special fills me with absolute dread, fear and excitement. I don't want to do it but can't wait to do it all at the same time...I just hope the crow bar is safely locked away.”

Karl Beattie, Executive Producer Antix Productions, said: “Most Haunted has been a first in television many times and this is another. It will give UKTV Play viewers the full experience of a live show as they will see everything as it happened. HMP Shrewsbury has already given us a good fight but we are back for more...in real time. We will be tweeting throughout the show on Halloween from 10pm.”

Luke Hales, Really general manager said: “Most Haunted is an important show for Really and we are thrilled that our on demand service UKTV Play will host its first Most Haunted Halloween event. It'll be two hours of pure, uncut Most Haunted. Plus fans will be able to talk to Yvette and Karl via Twitter about what they've just seen."

Most Haunted Halloween will be available exclusively on UKTV Play, @UKTVPlay (www.uktvplay.co.uk or via mobile app or via platform partners Sky, Virgin and BT) on 31 October and will be shown on Really's popular 'Lockdown Thursday' night, November 3rd at 10pm.
