Halloween promises to be REALLY spooky

Most Haunted Live, a special event for this Halloween (31st October) on Really, is to be co-hosted by Rylan Clark with presenter Jamie East. Throughout the evening they will be joined by special guests including Paul O'Grady. And whilst they are in the neighbouring studio, Yvette Fielding will lead the investigative team within the location. A location said to be haunted by one of the most violent poltergeists in the world.

This live special will be a fully interactive experience with viewers able to inform the investigation via social media. As cameras are rigged in every room throughout the unassuming property, viewers will have access to multiple additional live feeds that will be streamed online.

Stuart Murphy to leave Sky

Stuart Murphy, Sky’s Director, Entertainment Channels, has decided to step down from his role in order to pursue other creative opportunities.
In his six and a half years with Sky, Stuart has overseen the expansion of the portfolio of Sky entertainment channels including Sky 1, Sky Atlantic. Sky Arts and Sky Living.   He developed the team responsible for multi-award winning content from A League Of Their Own, An Idiot Abroad, David Attenborough’s Natural History Museum Alive and Fortitude to the upcoming Fungus The Bogeyman. He has built a world-class commissioning team and revolutionised Sky’s relationship with the UK independent production community. 
Gary Davey, Managing Director, Content, Sky, commented: “Stuart has played an important part in the growth of Sky’s content over the past six years. I’d like to thank him for his creative leadership and everything he has done to build Sky’s entertainment channels. He’s been responsible for brilliant dramas from The Enfield Haunting to You, Me and the Apocalypse and stand out comedies including Moone Boy and Stella. He has developed compelling channel brands which our customers value and commissioned content they love. He leaves behind a strong and well-respected commissioning team who will take our content to even greater heights and we look forward to working with him in the future.”

Coronation Street's classic set will be demolished

Plans to knock down Coronation Street's classic set in Manchester are moving ahead – in spite of a preservation campaign.
Manchester's planning committee have given the green light to the first phase of developers Allied London's bid to renovate the area where several Corrie landmarks currently stand.

Historic sites like the Rovers Return Inn and the old Granada House will soon be torn down in favour of the St John's multi-million pound development, which will include 2,500 apartments, a hotel, an office high rise and entertainment facilities.

Hilarious new comedy horror brings zombies, vampires, mummies, witches and monsters to the CBBC neighbourhood

Brand new and coming to CBBC in October, Scream Street is a fast-paced and stylish comedy-horror extravaganza based on the hit book series of the same name. It follows the adventures of Luke Watson, a regular teenager apart from the werewolf gene!

The 52x11 funny, scary, gross-out stop-motion animation is voiced by Tyger Drew-Honey, who plays Luke, with John Thomson, Debra Stephenson, Claire Skinner, Rasmus Hardiker, Tala Gouveia, and Jim Howick playing the residents of the extremely spooky Scream Street.

When the Government Housing of Unusual Lifeforms (G.H.O.U.L.) gets wind of Luke’s hairy habit, they transfer him and his parents to Scream Street – where surfer-dude zombies, sarcastic vampires, martial arts mummies, glamorous witches and just plain-bad monsters put a whole new spin on community spirit.

The stories are packed full of horror and humour delivered with warmth and heart - even if some of those hearts have stopped beating!
