Derek Acorah, the only TV psychic whose name rhymes with a tasty Indian snack, is said to be teaming up with Celebrity Big Brother contestant, Shilpa Shetty and bringing a new prime-time show to our TV screens.

'Wooo! are you mate?' Is a new concept that takes that thing about ancestors the BBC did and that ITV has now ripped-off and gives it a new twist.

The concept is that Del will contact famous figures who have 'passed over' and take them on a fascinating journey where they explore their past.

The Spoof understands that a pilot is already 'in the can' and the subject is none other than Charles Dickens.

He told us:

"This is a new type of show that fuses my usual bluffing and some total load of shit and comes up with something that we think is a fantastic new genre. Charles Dickens is a fascinating guy who wrote a lot of books so the show has an educational remit too"

We asked where Shilpa fitted in to things.

"Well she's a tidy boiler and has a high profile at the moment so quite honestly it's pure opportunism on both our parts. If it goes well then we may introduce a cooking segment and Shilpa could cook our guests a curry or teach them some Bollywood dancing. Can you just imagine Julius Caesar having a lamb madras or pratting about or something like that?"

When asked about the whereabouts of former perky Blue Peter presenter, Yvette Fielding, he refused to be drawn.

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
