There is some mystery around how and why Yvette Fielding quit Most Haunted. It was the show that Yvette and husband Karl Beattie made famous.
What is known is that the decision to quit or run Most Haunted Live for Halloween 2010 went right down to the wire. In the end there was no Most Haunted Live for 2010 and Living TV ran Paranormal Investigation: Live instead. In Pure Spirit was able to interview Team Impact ahead of broadcast.
The Most Haunted Live stage show became Yvette Fielding’s Night of Fright. The renaming may well be connected to who held the rights to the brand “Most Haunted” but it’s less clear why the renamed stage show was cancelled at short notice. Organisers sent out letters to people who had bought tickets (and arranged travel and stay) which included this paragraph;
Due to unforseen circumstances and events beyond the producer’s control, it is with deep regret that we have to announce the cancellation of Yvette Fielding’s Night Of Fright (formerly reffered to as Most Haunted Live)
It was clear that Yvette and Karl would be working on something else. On March 13th Karl updated his Facebook status to reflect that he had just returned from filming. This was repeated on March 18th. The nature of this project is unclear at this time.
What has been confirmed is that Yvette Fielding’s Night of Fright has returned and has three dates for 2011. The dates are:
- Wednesday 18th of May – The Victoria Theatre, Halifax
- Saturday 21st of May – Victoria Hall, Stoke
- Tuesday 24th of May – York Grand Opera House
The show will feature Victorian style seance, with Ouija boards and other paranormal investigations.
