Celebrity Haunted Mansion: Anthony Ogogo interview

What are you most scared of happening in the mansion?

I can imagine myself getting a bit animated if I get jumped out on from nowhere, or if I can feel something touching my body and I can't see it. But I'm intrigued to find out what's in store for me.

Have you had any experiences with the paranormal already?

In my childhood house we had a ghost called Isabella. She'd lived in our house 150 years before and ended up dying in a fire. And my sister made friends with her!

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

I think I'll be a calming influence on the mansion, I'm quite laid back and I like to help people that are getting really scared. Saying that, I might be the one getting really scared and need some help to calm me down!

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

Johnny Cash, he's probably the coolest dude that's ever lived, he would take no nonsense from any spirits. I think we'd get on really well and be best friends probably.

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

Regina George from Mean Girls! Somebody like that, very self-entitled, I'd want her to get kidnapped by the ghosts.

Are you a believer or a sceptic?
