Celebrity Haunted Mansion: Alison Hammond interview

What are you most scared of happening in the mansion?

The first time someone dies and goes into the other world! That would be awful, especially if it was me!

Have you had any experiences with the paranormal already?

I swear I hear something banging around or running around upstairs when there's no one else in the house.

What sort of team player will you be / what skills will you bring to the table?

I'm quite a shy and retiring person! Not a lot of people know that I've got a really good laugh, which I think might actually scare the ghosts off.

If you could pick 1 other person (famous or not, dead or alive) to go into the mansion with you, who would it be?

Oprah Winfrey. You know she's got your back, you know she's the type of person who's gonna know exactly what to say and I reckon she'd keep everyone calm.

Similarly, who's the WORST person you can think of to go into the mansion with?

John McCririck. He's very chauvinistic, not my kind of person at all. If he was in there, I'd be walking the other way!
