Whilst Derek Acorah is actualy supposed to be a very good medium, theres also something that came to light a while ago which makes rather amusing
reading. As most fans of Most Haunted know, Derek seems to get possesed almost every time he goes to a place. The following is an extract from a
website expelling the myths of thee mediums such as Derek Acorah.....sorry if its a bit long but it does makes amusing reading....
Here is the extract from the following site:
Bodmin Gaol, Cornwall
KREED KAFER = DEREK FAKER
During the first episode of series 6 of Most Haunted, at Bodmin gaol, they finally broadcast something I had been waiting for, for months.
If you hadn't already realised, Derek Acorah had fallen for one of the funniest stitch ups ever.
When they were filming the episode, a couple of people decided to have a bit of fun and they created a character, a South African man called Kreed
They deliberately talked about this fictitious character in earshot of Derek, hoping that he would use it during filming.
At the most they hoped he may say the name while "talking" with Sam, or round a Ouija board, but what they got was so much better, Derek actually
became possessed by Kreed Kafer!
Of course there was no record of such a name, and LivingTV proudly put it on a caption that there was no records of such a person. They also spelt it
Creed Kaifer, but as there was no records of this person, how would they know how it was spelt? So if you spell it phonetically, as Derek pronounced
it you get Kreed Kafer which was what was originally intended. Anyway at this point it was too late. As soon as they aired that clip, hundreds of
people put the parts together and spotted something that just didn't fit.
Kreed Kafer was the name spoken by Derek when they asked who had possessed him. But Kreed Kafer is an anagram of Derek Faker.
How can his loyal fans dismiss this major cock up by Derek?
Simply put they can't, some will deny it happened, some will say it's just wild coincidence. But I knew, in fact I had warned quite a few people to
keep a close eye on his possession before the show even started.
Imagine their surprise when they realised what had happened. I decided to email Richard Wolfe the head of Living TV, below is the email I sent him, as
of yet I have received no reply, if I do I will publish it here.....
I would like to bring to your attention the following,
Fraudulent Mediums Act 1951.
(1) Subject to the provisions of this section, any person who-
(a) with intent to deceive purports to act as spiritualistic medium or to exercise any powers of telepathy, clairvoyance or other similar powers, or
(b) in purporting to act as a spiritualistic medium or to exercise such powers as aforesaid, uses any fraudulent device, shall be guilty of an
(2) A person shall not be convicted of an offence under the foregoing subsection unless it is provided that he acted for reward; and for the purposes
of this section a person shall be deemed to act for reward if any money is paid, or other valuable thing given in respect of what he does, whether to
him or any other person.
During last nights broadcasted Most Haunted at Bodmin, Derek Acorah "did" a possession of a South African called Kreed Kafer, as you probably
already know Kreed Kafer is an anagram of Derek Faker, and during the filming of the episode, a couple of people for a laugh wanted to see if they
could catch Derek out, they talked about this character within ear shot of Derek.
After yet another over the top ridiculous possession, it was plain for everyone to see that Derek had been stitched up.
Now if you read the Fraudulent Mediums Act then you are well within your rights to dismiss Derek Acorah and even claim damages against him.
I hope you will take this email seriously, as you have many Most Haunted fans out there who are seriously disillusioned with the show right now, and
this continued protection of this man will eventually turn every fan against not only Most Haunted but also LivingTV.
I will be forwarding a copy of this message to the Tabloid Newspapers as well as Derek Acorahs manager Gwen.
I await your reply
Now i would love to be a fly on the wall when Derek gets that message on his desk! Funnily enough, Derek won't be doing the next series of Most
Haunted, Evette Fielding was on the radio with Chris Moyles yesterday morning and all Chris was doing was taking the mick out of Derek getting
possessed lol.....sounded like a butch Lilly Savage!
Oh well, whether its real or not, it makes funny viewing.
