uth Langsford used to do Ouija boards with her friends at boarding school.

The 59-year-old TV presenter opened up about her own spooky experience during Wednesday's (22.05.19) episode of "Loose Women", revealing she once tried to contact the supernatural world using one of the spirit boards - which are used to communicate with the dead via numbers, letters and the responses "yes", "no" and "goodbye" - but she ran out of her bedroom screaming when she heard a noise.

Speaking on the daytime talk show, Ruth said: "When I was at boarding school we did the Ouija board, and it was the tension, the build up, and we'd put a sheet up and over the bed and we'd all be on the bed.

"You just knew because somebody would move, we'd go, "You moved that Janet," and they'd go, "No I didn't." Then there would be a noise and we'd all run out screaming, "Oh my god!" and it's almost like if you're there, you feed off the expectation."

The "Loose Women" panellists were joined by Yvette Fielding, 50, on today's show, and the TV presenter opened up about her scariest moment hosting "Most Haunted", recalling she has had knives thrown at her on a visit to an estate in Leeds.

She added: "I do get scared, particularly when things mark you and hurt you and we've had proof of that [because] knives were thrown at us.

"There are plenty of nice ghosts, I'm just saying my personal belief is that there is life after death and I have had experiences and people I work with have seen something supernatural that they cannot explain.

"2001 we started ["Most Haunted"] so it's a very, very long time. You have to show it to me, I can't believe in something if I can't actually see it."
