The broadcaster Really, which is home to shows including 'Most Haunted', 'Ghost Chasers' and 'Ghost Adventures', has provided a list of things to do and questions to ask while trying to contact their late relatives this Halloween (31.10.17).

The channel said: ''You might consider talking to the spirit world whilst you're investigating, encouraging the ghost to reveal its presence.

''Try to ask questions such as 'what is your name?' instead of saying 'is there anyone there?' A lot of people might make this mistake.

''By asking 'what is your name?' you're acting as though you know the spirits are there and this will increase your chances of making contact.''
