The television star said: “If there is an afterlife, I’m coming back as a poltergeist. I can’t wait.

“You’ll be in your kitchen and a plate will go flying, and you’ll know it’s me.”

Yvette responded: “We could be bad together! We could be really bad together, couldn’t we! We could go to the Houses of Parliament.”

Paul added: “Oh we could do all sorts! I’d pee in the members drinking tank and all manner of stuff. I’d do terrible things, it’d be such a hoot.

“And anyway, they’d get an exorcist in and that’d be the end of us! Woof, puff of smoke, down to hell for bad behaviour!”

In addition, Paul also revealed that he’s lived in a haunted house.

What else did he say?

He recalled: “Well, when I first moved in here, people used to say they could smell perfume. And I couldn’t, I never smelt it.

“It was about two years later, I got up one night and went downstairs for a drink, and I smelt it on the stairs, it hit me.

“This is the weird bit. I went to lunch two years ago and the girl who was sitting next to me was a friend of one of the relations of the lady who lived in this house.
