Noel Coward’s ghost haunts Julian Clary’s house

Comedian Julian Clary claims his house is haunted. It’s haunted, he says, by none other than the spirit of playwright and fellow gay icon Noel Coward. Clary’s beautiful 16th century Kent mansion is, in fact, the former home of ‘The Master’ and he wrote his classic ghostly comedy ‘Blithe Spirit’ there.

Coward’s spirit is not the only one in the house, Clary claims. He’s clearly a fervent believer in the supernatural because he told the Daily Mail reporter interviewing him that he used divining ‘sticks’ to seek out spirits, and saw the apparition of a Cavalier while he was doing so. He’s also got used to a lot of low-level paranormal activity, like odd noises and pictures dropping off the walls for no apparent reason.

I must admit, I’d no idea Julian Clary was now an author but it seems he’s reasonably celebrated as such. His latest novel is inspired by the ghosts in the house and the life of Noel Coward. Hence the publicity. You can read more at:
