Will Young has revealed he believes he saw a ghost when he was a child.
The 32-year-old singer and actor stars in new ITV drama Bedlam as geeky Ryan who moves into Bedlam Heights – a pre-Victorian mental asylum getting converted into luxury apartments – and has some real life spooky experiences to inspire his performance.
Will revealed: “I remember running through a friend’s very old house and seeing some curtains, that were tied back, close behind me. Also his Scalextric – showing my age, there! – used to go round on its own. I didn’t like staying over.
“I also think my house in Cornwall is haunted, but I think she’s a nice ghost.”
The Pop Idol winner said he could never sleep in a former mental home.
He said: “No way! I couldn’t think of anything worse, I wouldn’t be able to sleep. I think people leave energies behind.
“I believe in energies, I’m not sure if it’s the whole white sheet thing.”
:: Bedlam starts on Monday, February 7 on Sky Living.
