Yvette Fielding breaks silence on Derek Acorah’s death after bitter 14 year feud

Derek Acorah 's former Most Haunted co-star Yvette Fielding has spoken out about his death after a 14 year feud following their TV stint together.

Yvette starred on the medium show with Derek from 2002 to 2006, when Derek was kicked off the show.

Following the announcement that Derek had died on Friday at the age of 69, Yvette released a statement via her agent.

The message stated: "Our condolences are with Derek’s family at this time. Yvette and Karl," and was signed off by the star and her husband Karl Beattie, who was a co-creator of the show with Yvette.

Derek was fired from Most Haunted after being duped into channeling a fake personality called Kreed Kafer – an anagram for Derek Faker – during an episode.

Yvette spoke about Derek's sacking when it happened, saying: "We tell people everything is real, then it turns out he was a fake, so he had to go."

Derek hit back at Yvette, saying she was "egotistical," adding: "She decided when I left the show that she didn't want to talk to me any more. There was no need for it and it was very sad."

Despite Derek claiming that his spiritual guide Sam had made a mistake, he was asked to leave the show, and in 2015 Yvette axed mediums completely from Most Haunted.

He later claimed that Yvette had been "jealous" of his success, telling the Belfast Telegraph in 2015: "It doesn't matter at all what people like Yvette Fielding say – I don't allow them to run me down," he insisted.

"I've been crucified and lied about; there is a lot of jealousy out there, but I haven't opened my mouth about Yvette for years – I had a confidentiality clause and if I'd said anything negative, I'd have been sued and pursued and all my money would have been taken away."

She also slammed a "vile couple" for hounding him during his last hours, and told the Sun that their messages to him "had been going for a while" and had come from jealousy of his status.

Gwen told The Sun that she would never forgive the couple, saying they were sending him vile messages while he was in hospital.
