Real Housewives of Cheshire star Lauren Simon shocked her co-star Nicole Sealey in Monday night's episode after admitting she'd had sex with a ghost – but he ended up dumping her.

The duo went to see a psychic medium, with Lauren hoping to get a message from her late father.

However while a message from beyond the grave wasn't meant to be, the redhead did reveal something shocking of her own.

"I have to admit something really weird," she started. "I've had sex with a ghost."

She explained: "I actually properly had sex. I knew it wasn't a dirty dream because it was too real, something was touching me.

"I've had that before when I feel someone holding me down."

Lauren, who was one of the original The Real Housewives of Cheshire cast members when it first started, went on to explain her ghostly lover ended up leaving her.

She said: "This particular ghost that came and I had sex with him, it happened twice.

"It was a very bizarre feeling, but he never came back. So does that mean I wasn't good in bed?"

The medium told her that it didn't mean that, and reassured her it was apparently "normal" to have ghostly sexual encounters.

Nicole crudely joked: "What if he entered you and never left?"

The gal pals were told it was normal for people to experience a "whispering" from ghosts.

But Lauren said: "I haven't had whispering but I have had full blown sex."

The reality star, who split from her property tycoon ex-husband Paul in 2016, joked: "To be fair, it's been a while since I've had a proper relationship, so I'll take anything I get.

"But I'm not going to be up for a ghostly booty call."

Lauren and Paul, who used to appear on the show, split in 2016 and got divorced, with her getting a £3million pay-out.
