Matt Richardson's back at the old haunt

Celebrity Haunted Mansion returns

Matt Richardson is to return with a second series of Celebrity Haunted Mansion next month

The stand-up will again be joined by Christine Lampard for the live show, which will be stripped over five nights on the W channel, starting at 9pm on Wednesday February 21.

Two paranormal investigators will each lead a team of celebrities around a ‘haunted’ gothic mansion and invite them them to take part in a series of challenges. The celebrities taking part will be revealed closer to broadcast. 

As previously announced, Richardson will also host sister show High Spirits, which will air at 7pm every night to recap the previous evening’s events.

Last year’s Celebrity Haunted Hotel was widely derided by critics, but performed well in the ratings, averaging  147,000 on overnight figures and boosting W’s audience more than 40 per cent above the average for the slot.

UKTV’s Helen Nightingale said:‘Christine and Matt have excellent on screen chemistry and work together flawlessly, they are the perfect presenting duo to heighten the electric, spooky atmosphere for our viewers.’

The first episode of Celebrity Haunted Mansion will also be broadcast live on Really, UKTV's free-to-air channel.
