The TV star was the main medium on the Living TV programme from 2001 to 2005, and has since worked on a number of other paranormal projects for the channel, including Derek Acorah’s Ghost Towns and Derek Acorah’s Quest for Guy Fawkes.
“I’ve watched the programme since [leaving] and I must admit I’m shocked – it has the tendency to become like Scooby Doo,” Acorah told Celebs On Sunday magazine.
“It wasn’t like that when I was on Most Haunted and no one ever approached me and said: ‘Can you do this or that?’ Everything was genuine when I was on it.”
Asked how his wife Gwen copes with his psychic abilities, he replied: “It’s been difficult for her, she’s a soldier. For a woman to live with a man like me for all these years, she’s a true life star. A person unlike my wife would have probably thrown in the towel.”
