Rylan Clarke is sure he is being haunted by a poltergeist

Rylan Clarke is sure he is being haunted by a poltergeist

Rylan Clark has said he believes he's being haunted by a poltergeist in the studio where he records his BBC Radio 2 show.

The former X Factor contestant appears on Radio 2 on Saturday afternoons, but claims he is usually joined in the studio by a ghostly presence.

Rylan was speaking to listeners this weekend when he admitted that he felt the poltergeist was in the room with him again.

"So it’s just us, that’s it - apart from the ghosts, that is", he told listeners.

“I swear my studio is haunted. I’m not the only one who thinks so, either."

Whether you believe Rylan or not, it sounds like the TV personality has a bit of a sixth sense when it comes to these things.

In his new book Ten, the 33-year-old claimed that he had seen a ghost once before, though it didn't particularly bother him at the time.

He said: "I’m not frightened but something always catches my eye.

"I’m telling you now, the spirit of something or someone is poltergeisting away in there!

"I s**t you not – I have seen people walk behind me before."

Back in 2018, Rylan put his ghost-hunting skills to good use as the host of Channel 5's Celebrity Ghost Hunt, where he teamed up with supernatural investigators and some famous faces to look at some of the most haunted spaces in the UK.

In one episode, Rylan was joined by TOWIE's Bobby Norris, Love Island's Marcel Somerville and Geordie Shore's Marnie Simpson in an old nuclear bunker to make contact with the other side, but it wasn't long before things got out of hand.

Things got so freaky that Rylan and Bobby had to be evacuated from the scene when they came into contact with a particularly hateful spirit.

Although Rylan's ghost-hunting days are no longer televised, it sounds like the former Celebrity Big Brother star is always keeping an eye out for supernatural beings that might cross his path.

Rylan's new book also looks back on the past decade of his life in the spotlight, marking ten years since he first shot to fame on The X Factor.

While his TV career shows no signs of slowing down, Rylan did recently hint that he'd be up for trying his hand at politics, convinced that he could do a better job than Liz Truss.

"That’s not being big headed, but I actually worry that someone like me, who was that idiot on X Factor in a light-up suit, could probably run things more smoothly than it’s going at the moment", he said.

"That’s not my job. I shouldn’t know. But it seems the people that are supposed to know are getting a little bit confused."
