Jason Manford gets spooky for Sky 1

Comedy-horror short for Halloween

Jason Manford has written short comedy-horror film to air on Sky1 this Halloween.

The comic will also star in That's The Spirit, part of a season of shorts similar to the broadcaster’s previous Little Cracker Christmas-themed films.

Manford will also star alongside Rebecca Callard as his wife. The pair previously appeared together in BBC One’s Ordinary Lies as colleagues in a car dealership having an affair.

Imogen Gurney, who has appeared in the Billy Elliot stage musical, and Brenock O’Connor, who plays Olly in Game of Thrones, will play the couple’s children.

Filming takes place next week, as Manford announced on social media:

When he appeared on Alan Carr’s Chatty Man at Halloween last year, Manford told a spooky story about his children seeing the ghost of an actor murdered at London’s Adelphi Thteatre.

Manford previously made a Little Cracker for Sky One in Christmas 2012.
