Rob Lowe has claimed to have talked to a ghost during the filming of his new TV series.

The Parks And Recreation actor fronts a ghosthunting programme with his sons Matthew and John Owen called The Lowe Files, which sees the trio track spirits and explore unexplained mysteries across the US.

Speaking to the Television Critics Association press tour, when one reporter asked whether he had been able to communicate with the spirit world, Lowe said that he had.

According to celebrity site Us Weekly, he said: “Yeah — now. I hadn’t previously to this. It was through the Ovilus.

“There’s a device they use that the theory is it can translate…that the spirits can talk through this device, for a lack of better term.

“Don’t ask me how, don’t ask me the science, I don’t know.”

But the 53-year-old admitted there had been some scepticism about it.

He said: “John just thinks it’s randomly programmed to say words at any given time, which it could be, but how does it know to say the word?

“It said the dead woman’s name where she was murdered.

“Judge for yourself…I don’t want to seem like a nut.

“I don’t want to end my career here. Too late?”
