UKTV is to air a spooky live show fronted by Christine Lampard (formerly Bleakley), Matt Richardson and Jamie East with Celebrity Haunted Hotel Live.
“We are excited to be broadening the shows on W even further with a live, nightly entertainment event for Halloween. Set in Britain’s spookiest village, Celebrity Haunted Hotel Live combines interactive challenges with a ghostly setting. I can’t wait to see how brave our celebrities really are.” – Steve North, W’s general manager
Celebrity guests will check in each night to what’s been dubbed Britain’s spookiest hotel starting on Thursday 27 October at 9pm and culminating with a finale on Halloween. Lampard with co-hosts Richardson and East, check in a new batch of celebrities nightly. Guests brave enough to stay in the ghost-ridden lodgings will be under the control of viewers. Celebrities will be voted to take part in nail-biting and riotous live investigations, experiments and group events while exploring each episode’s gruesome ghost story theme. Jamie will be updating live from the interactive hub, within the hotel grounds.
Matt Richardson will also host companion show Celebrity Haunted Hotel Live: Do Not Disturb, at 6pm nightly from Friday 28th October, giving viewers a chance to catch-up on the previous night’s eerie occurrences and challenges and set the scene for the evening show.
“This is a spooky addition to W’s growing slate of original content – an entertainment event set in the darkest of places; perfect for Halloween. With a whole host of celebrities to frighten, W viewers will be gripped by the unfolding nightly action.” – UKTV executive producer, Helen Nightingale
Celebrity Haunted Hotel Live launches on Thursday 27th October at 9pm for five nights until the grand finale on Halloween – 31st October. Evening catch up show Celebrity Haunted Hotel Live: Do Not Disturb will air at 6pm from Friday 28th October for 4 nights.
