Yvette Fielding has admitted she ‘lost her bottle’ hosting the new series of Most Haunted.

Despite hosting the show since 2002, Yvette confessed to being ‘full of nerves’ as she once again visited spooky locations across the UK to investigate suspected paranormal activity for the new 10-part series, which starts on Really at 10pm on Thursday, August 21.

She told What’s On TV: “Coming back to Most Haunted after a four-year break, I’ve really lost my bottle and I’m just the biggest wuss now – during filming I was shaking, full of nerves and gripping people’s arms so tight I left bruises.”

In Thursday night’s episode, Yvette and the team visit The Royal Court Theatre in Bacup, Lancashire. And Yvette recalled being more than a little nervous when she discovered what was waiting in the wings.

She said: “We’d hear footsteps, loud banging noises and objects were constantly being hurled at us, it was very frightening. At one point, a lightbulb was thrown with such force I almost wet myself!”
