CORONATION Street star Simon Gregson is into the 'supernatural' and he admits he has done his reading up about Gwrych Castle.

The soap star, who is the latest to join the line-up of I'm A Celebrity....Get Me Out Of Here! will be entering the castle as a late arrival alongside Adam Woodyatt who is best known for playing Ian Beale in Eastenders.

Simon is best known for playing Steve McDonald in Coronation Street.

Before heading into the castle, Suzanne Kendrick, Coastal Chief Reporter, asked Simon if he believed Gwrych Castle, near Abergele, was haunted and if it would bother him.

Simon replied: "I don't think it would bother me. I did read up on the castle because I am interested in all things spooky.

"I believe there is a lady in white, I believe there is a gardener, a milkmaid and poltergeist butler who may come in handy. You never know."

Suzanne commented: "They may help."

While Simon agreed: "Exactly!"

In October, the actor appeared on Loose Women to talk about his belief in the supernatural.

He spoke about 'spooky encounters' at home which he believes is haunted.

He said that he, his wife Emma and their son Alfie, as well as friends, had all seen a "white lady" in the house.

Simon revealed he owned a caravan in Wales [on Anglesey], which he has had for many years.

He told journalists, during a round-table interview: "I love North Wales. We are pretty much here half the year anyway because we have got a caravan here.

"We are big fans of North Wales, made a lot of friends here.
