Video: Is Coronation Street haunted?

On This Morning's Supernatural Week so far they've had a woman who believes she was abducted by aliens and a lady who thinks she had sex with a ghost.  So, take this walk down "haunted" Coronation Street with as much enthusiasm or scepticism as you can muster, depending on your beliefs.  The video's worth watching for the old clips alone.

Jeff Brazier visited the old set, which was home of the soap from 1982 to 2014, to see if he could capture any scary goings on.   While he was there, he had a look at Fred Elliot and Hayley Cropper's coffins, learned about the ghost of Ivy Tilsley and saw some grisly items belonging to serial killer Richard Hillman.

There was a look back at Hilda Ogden's séance as well as a chat with Liz Dawn, who played Vera Duckworth - the only character to have come back into the soap as a ghost.

She returned in her husband Jack Duckworth's dying moments to have a kiss and a wee waltz.
Liz said: "This is the chair I died in. It were emotional – we never kissed you know, Jack and Vera, until I were dead. There are moments in the programme when you feel it, when you get emotional.
"I think Vera and Jack would walk on the street, not knowing they’re dead, going in the Rovers. Well I hope so..."
