Celebrity Haunted Mansion: Lydia Bright interview

What are you most scared of happening in the mansion?

Getting stuck in a room by myself in the pitch black. That would freak me out.

Have you had any experiences with the paranormal already?

My mum says that when I was younger, every morning when she'd try to get me out of my cot I'd tell her "the yaydy tried to get me". So my mum is convinced that when I was a baby, I always used to see a lady ghost come to my cot. But I can't remember that.

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

I'll bring positivity. So when people are feeling nervous and really frightened and wanting to leave, I'll be making them happy that we are on this experience together.

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

Beyonce, because she has her Sasha Fierce persona, where she's really fiery and feisty, but also if I get too nervous I could just get her to serenade me.

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

Bobby Norris. I love the boy to bits but he is petrified of absolutely everything and would scream constantly and that would just make me a bag of nerves.

Are you a believer or a sceptic?

There are some things I completely believe in, like spirits, but then other things I just think are completely crazy - like those dolls that come alive at nighttime. So it kind of depends.
