The show will air tonight (Friday October 30), a day ahead of Halloween.

The programme sees MacGrianna visit Wicklow Gaol to learn of its gruesome history. Viewers will see him undertake a "paranormal tour" of the site, as well as "meet" with past inmates.

Aengus attends the gaol with parapsychologist Keith and psychic medium Angie of 'Paranormal Troubleshooters International'.

Far from being cynical of the supernatural, Aengus will admit to viewers that he is open minded to the concept of ghosts.

In this special TV report Aengus declares “Cell 13 is said to be one of the most ‘active’ cells in the whole jail” and takes part in a séance in the infamous cell, watching on as a table moves and falls to the ground after Angie calls out to the spirits.
