The actor went on to say, "Boys always call their toys boys' names and girls call their toys girls’ names. So I'd always called it Dennis - and I'd shout, 'Dennis, I'm trying to work.'

"But it's Rosemary - so basically, yes, we do have a noisy ghost in our house and according to Derek, it's called Rosemary."

Derek has previously opened up about being a spiritual medium and has said he has a sprit guide called Sam who looks out from him.

Back in 2017 - when the two men appeared on CBB - Derek brought Sam into the house however no one was able to see him on camera.

Derek claims he met Sam during a previous life, over 2,000 years ago, when he was an Ethiopian boy.

Speaking to Nottingham post he explained, "Sam was an oracle with psychic powers who travelled from village to village.

"When my village was attacked by some marauding invaders, I heard the screaming and I scampered away. When it settled, I crawled back to find my family had been massacred.

"Two days and nights passed before Sam arrived and shouted my name out. From then on, I travelled with him."
