It's almost Halloween, and who doesn't love a haunted house?! Well, people who live in one all year round might quickly get tired of having a few invisible lodgers. Top UK paranormal investigator Barri Ghai has been to plenty of eerie places... and he knows all the clues that you might have a ghost under your roof.
Barri Ghai, star of Help! My House Is Haunted, has been to some of the scariest places in Britain - it's safe to say that he knows a thing or two about things that go bump (or scream, scratch or smash) in the night.
With Halloween just days away, the veil between the world of the living and the dead is growing thinner, and you might have noticed more strange sounds or happenings in your home.
Are you paranoid? Or is there something paranormal going on?
He teamed up with Leader Furniture to share insight into haunted houses - and how you can tell if your home has a special guest.
If you think your house may be haunted, Barri recommends that you first try and look for the most logical explanation first before entertaining the idea that you may be sharing your home with spirits.
Record everything, document experiences and try to capture the phenomena on camera. If evidence is gathered successfully, contact a professional paranormal investigator. Once confirmation of the haunting has been officially established, speak to a psychic, medium, or clairvoyant who may be able to help cross the spirit over and subdue the entity.
