Gigs postponed by psychic comedy character Shirley Ghostman have finally been rescheduled – a full year after they were initially cancelled. Chortle has previously reported how fans of Marc Wooton's spoof spiritualist were furious at being left in the dark after a run of shows last October were pulled at the last minute. They received no word from promoters SJM Concerts about when the new Spooktacular shows would happen – until today, eight months later.
