The Mirror have an odd story today that says an exorcist has been called to the iconic Old Granada Studios after reports of strange goings-on interrupting rehearsals for the Granadaland Wrap Party.
Organisers of the wrap party, due to take place at the studios the end of this month, were forced to call in the exorcist, after a tribute act refused to play because they claimed they had experienced a ghostly presence while rehearsing.
Granadaland organisers called for the help of an exorcist to try and find the source of the paranormal activity - admitting that this was their "last resort" so the party could go ahead.
Christopher Wandsworth, general manager of Granadaland said: "The Old Granada Studios is one of the most iconic venues in the country, and we want to make sure that everyone is happy and comfortable before the event.
"After a lot of back and forth and the ultimatum that, unless something was done the act would pull out, an exorcism was our last resort. Without acts, after all, we don't have a show. We know there've been numerous rumours over the years about paranormal happenings in the studios, and we know many put this down to their location. It's scary but also exciting to think that the studios we've spent so much time at preparing and rehearsing might actually be haunted."
