BEHIND THE SCENES WITH best
‘I believe in spirits, and not just the liquid ones !’
babe Ampika Pickston, 36, chats to us about her ghostly experiences and leaving the TV reality show that catapulted her to fame... What made you want to take part in this reality TV show? It’s something I’ve always been interested in. I’ve been part of a spiritual circle since I was 16, so this isn’t something out of the norm for me. This is something that I’ve embraced. I’m a big believer in spirits, and not just the liquid ones! What’s your most memorable ghostly encounter? It’s when I’ve allowed a spirit to enter my body. The last time I did it, I picked up on someone’s father, took over his characteristics and the things that I said were just how her father would, and it brought her to tears. I’ve never met this woman in my life. I knew nothing about her background, so to be able to deliver that message, and for her to feel that it was real, was a very powerful moment.
Will the ghost hunt scare you?
Not at all! Good souls only vibrate with good souls.
How will you be if some of the celebs are scared?
I’m the mum of the group, so I suppose I’ll have to be the brave trooper – teaching them breathing techniques. I’ll tell them to feel empowered, and that no spirits are there to hurt us or lead us away. Is it strange not being in
The Real Housewives Of Cheshire any more?
It’s weird, because it’s what I’ve known for the past three
years. But everything in life is a chapter – nothing is for ever. I just felt that I’d reached the point where I’d been glad to be part of something so big, but it was time to move on.
Will you miss the drama?
With my type of personality, there will always be drama and conflict in my life!
Who won’t you miss?
Quite a few people actually! But I’m friends with Leanne and Lauren, I think the world of them. The rest of them can burn in hell! l
