Loose Women’s Andrea McLean claimed she once encountered a ghost in her London home, but the show’s viewers were not entirely convinced.
Andrew, was joined by Brenda Edwards, Coleen Nolan and Jane Moore on today’s pane to discuss reports that Britain’s Got Talent’s Simon Cowell might be living in a haunted House.
Cowell’s dwelling could be haunted by the lover of a Roman emperor, according to its previous owner Christian Levett.
McLean, 49, shared a ghostly encounter of her own, which happening during her 20s, when she saw a man dressed like King Charles II while she was meditating.

Viewers were split between those who believed the panelists’ stories and those who dismissed them as fantasy
‘I was meditating, and I was on my own,’ the host recalled.
‘And then I completely felt there was someone standing next to me,’
‘My first thoughts was that I had been burgled,’ she said, but went on to say what she saw was very different.
‘It was a man, and he was standing right there, and he was dressed like King Charles II,’ she said.
Skeptic Jane Moore, 56, does not believe in ghost and could not hide her dubiousness during the segment
Other viewers shared their own ghostly encounters on Twitter, with many recounting feeling the presence of dead loved ones
‘Maybe he was a burglar in fancy dress,’ she joked
McLean said she closed her eyes and that the ‘presence’ was gone when she opened them again.
Brenda Edwards, 46, who said she believed ‘more in spirits than ghosts,’ revealed that her late parents gave her a sign shortly after she was diagnosed with breast cancer.
Edwards said she found herself in a time of ‘soul-searching,’ after being diagnosed with stage three breast cancer in 2016, and turned to her parents’ spirits for guidance.

Coleen Nolan, 54, said she did not believe in ghosts but would love to. She joked if she ever saw a ghost, it would never be a man
‘I’m putting my head up and I’m like “mom, dad, how can I get through this? Show me something, show me a sign”, she said.
Edwards claimed she then felt a shiver running up her arms, which she took as a sign from her parents.
She said it gave her a more ‘positive outlook on everything.’
Coleen Nolan, 54, said she’d love to believe in ghosts but had never really experienced anything similar or seen one.
‘If I closed my eyes, it wouldn’t be a guy,’ she joked.
Fellow panelist Jane Moore seemed more skeptical and refused to comment, wearing a dubious smile during the whole interaction instead.
While some viewers shared Jane’s opinion that there are no such things as ghosts, some pitched in with their own ghost stories.
‘No ghosts, no afterlife, no heaven, no hell, no nothing,’ commented one adamant viewer. ‘When you’re dead you’re dead! It’s just the same as before you’re born.’
‘A week after my grandad passed away, I woke up around 3am to see my grandad and grandma standing beside my bed. Perhaps I was dreaming but it felt so real and I was reassured from then onwards,’ commented one.
‘My fiancee says he saw a ghost when he was three years old. He went into a room and there was a man dressed as a clown, he screamed and ran down, his mam checked the room and no one was there,’ shared another.
‘I was asleep and I’m sure someone sat on the side of my bed even though there was no one there,’ another added.
