My wife read an article to me from Finnish TV station, MTV3 about a British medium who, allegedly, has been in contact with Michael Jackson. Come to find out that this British medium is none other than the legendary Derek Acorah.
In case you don’t know, Derek was a featured medium on the British haunted house show Most Haunted. Derek provided connection between the Most Haunted crew and the spirit world with the help of his trusty sidekick, Sam – the ghost with the most. During some investigations, Derek would become possessed by spirits the team was investigating. This and other events led the show’s parapsychologist, Ciaran O’Keeffe to feed a fake name – I guess through Derek’s mole – to Derek about a supposed spirit who haunted a certain location. The name was an anagram of Derek’s name and Derek “made contact” with this spirit.
Since being let go from Most Haunted, Derek has been doing other media work. Now, Derek is back on the radar again with a performance so ridiculous that everyone involved in the show has to be in on it.
Derek has appeared on a Sky One (Britain) show called Michael Jackson: The Live Seance. Allegedly, Michael talks through Derek and comforts several fans – who need to get a job worse than I do – and talks about not being buried next to Marilyn Monroe. It’s good to see Derek back in action, but I’m shocked that he didn’t let loose a “shammon” or a “heee heee” while talking to the people at the table. You can see the YouTube clip from Brand X.
