The first Most Haunted Live! aired from Dudley Castle on the night of Halloween 2002, after the first series of the show came to an end. Since then the team, which includes Yvette alongside her husband, Karl Beattie and Stuart Torevell, have embarked on 43 live investigations, including the 2010 'Live Series' in which the team visited a different haunted locations each week for eight weeks.

In the early days the team were joined by spiritualist medium Derek Acorah for the investigation, which aired for only one night. Over time the events became bigger and better, often running for anything from three to eight consecutive nights, with the team visiting multiple locations or even a different city each night.

Following a five-year hiatus, Most Haunted Live! returned to our screens on Saturday 31st October, 2015 for a Halloween special from the infamous poltergeist house, 30 East Drive in Pontefract. The episode was broadcast on UKTV channel Really and remains the most watched programme in the channel's history since its launch in 2009.

Since 2015 there have been no live episodes, but several "as live" specials have been aired. These shows are shot in the same style as a live show, are unedited and are longer than a regular episode of the show. For Halloween 2016 one of these episode was shot at HMP Shrewsbury and the following year saw the team investigate Croxteth Hall in Liverpool on Halloween night.

While fans love the "as live" show, there's no denying that they'd love a fully live edition of Most Haunted, but is there one on the cards? The team were recently asked this question during a live online Q&A session.

Yvette confessed that she is frustrated that they can't take the show out as a live broadcast, she said, "if the truth be told, it pisses me off because we should be doing them live."

The show's producer, Karl added, "nobody wants a 'live' more than us, we all want it exactly the same," and added "we are doing are absolute best and we are hoping to bring you something one day."

As frustrating as it is, Karl promised to let fans know of any updated on social media, and said "we so desperately want to do a 'live', because we know you guys love it. The 'lives' are always the life blood of Most Haunted, it was a way for us to see lots of the fans all in one place, we can talk to them about the show, what they like, what they don't like."

An update came in August 2018, when Karl tweeted: "Sadly UKTV has made it very clear to us that they don't have the appetite for a Most Haunted Live despite our best efforts for a number of years and your petitions and emails asking for one. So, if we do a paranormal live show on Halloween it will not be on the UKTV network."
