Most Hoaxed Live

I watch most haunted, purely for the entertainment value, so I am not surprised with this article in todays paper
I remember the episode with Kreed Kafer and there was a lot of Hoo-haa over it on the internet, as the thing had been leaked before hand. A lot of web
pages had to be shut down because it contained 'slanderous content' about the medium. But it is a surprise that the source is the resident
parapsychologist Keiran O'Keefe.
Here is some of the stuff he did, as reported by the paper
He devised a plan to see if Derek was deliberately deceiving the public.
While on a shoot at Bodmin gaol he invented a long-dead South African jailer called Kreed Kafer - an anagram of Derek Faker.
"I wrote the name down and asked another member of the crew to mention it to Derek before filming.
"I honestly didn't think Derek would take the bait. But during the filming he actually got possessed by my fictional character!"
On the next shoot at Prideaux Place, Cornwall, Ciaran made up another fictional character, highwayman Rik Eedles - an anagram of Derek Lies. Sure
enough, Derek made contact with the dead outlaw.
Ciaran says: "In my professional opinion we're not dealing with a genuine medium.
"When Derek is possessed he is doing it consciously - all we are seeing is showmanship and dramatics."
Ciaran went a step further at Craigievar Castle, near Aberdeen.
"I made up stories about Richard the Lionheart, a witch, and Richard's apparition appearing to walk through a wardrobe - the lion, the witch and the
wardrobe!" True to form, Derek mentioned all Ciaran's stories - even though Richard I reigned 500 years BEFORE Craigievar Castle was built.
It makes interesting reading. I wonder how the crew will react to this (if at all) especially as tonight is the start of the next live show. Or is it
just publicity to get viewers in?
