Top TV psychic Derek Acorah is smarting after allegations that he is in fact a charlatan and shyster.
Acorah, the only TV psychic whose name rhymes with a tasty Indian starter, is accused of rigging 'paranormal happenings' on his hit satellite TV show 'Antiques Roadshow'
Yvette Fielding, his psychic side-kick, has said that the great man is gutted by the allegations.
"Derek's a really genuine guy and he'd never rig anything up. All that screaming and shrieking on the show is totally genuine and is as a result of us having seen ghosties and ghoulies and all that" chirps the perky ex-Blue Peter presenter.
But The Spoof can reveal that at one of his recent devil worshipping 'black masses' the ethereal moaning heard wasn't coming from a soul in torment, oh no!
Because after 'Del Boy' had left the gaff, Jason Skulker, our undercover reporter found a ghetto blaster hidden behind the curtains and what do you think was in it? Only a CD entitled 'Now that's what I call Spooky 43'!
Our man's attention was drawn to track number 21, listed as 'Soul in Torment' and upon pushing the play button Jason recognised the exact same 'soul in torment' that Pakora had told his disciples was in fact a medieval nun who had not yet found peace, when it had reverberated around the hall some twenty minutes earlier.
We put this to Poppadum but he declined to comment saying that he was traumatised after having just performed a particularly tricky exorcism.
Anyway, why not tell us about your paranormal experiences and we'll print some of the best ones.
