Man who owns ‘UK’s most haunted doll’ tells This Morning CCTV caught her rocking in a chair

A man who runs a ghost museum in Stoke on Trent has claimed to be the proud owner of the UK’s most haunted doll, known as Scary Mary, as well as a host of other possessed artifacts.

Craig appeared on ITV’s This Morning to discuss the creepy Mary, who he adopted last year and dates back to 1951.

“As soon as we had her, she started to get active in our room,” Craig explained, speaking to presenters Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield. “She has been seen many times on CCTV where the seat slid back and forth, the seat rocked, her eyes moved and she dropped herself out of the seat on two separate occasions.”

He continued: “She sometimes lights lights around the equipment that she likes to play with.

“We’ve had four audience members here on tour and she was actually sitting on the table in the middle of the room and she was rocking in front of them.

Three more ladies had a tour and witnessed her eyes go all the way to the right. She’s amazing and an amazing artifact and one of the best I’ve had in all my years doing this.”

When presenter Holly asked if he ever became afraid of her – especially living at his home during the pandemic, Craig replied: “Sometimes it can feel a little awkward, but most of the time we’re pretty comfortable with Mary’s energy surrounding us.” gone.

“Originally this came from her pub which was a haunted pub. It was donated by a local undertaker who kept it in storage for many years. It was used in World War II to bring the bodies of fallen soldiers back to the United Kingdom.

There are over a thousand bodies that have been found to have been in that coffee. We have a lot of pops and scratches around the chest. People who scour by it get ice cold and other points.’

He then showed viewers a Victorian pram that he has owned for over a decade.

“Many live feeds show this stroller moving forward and backward on its own. That happened about 8 or 9 times in the past year.’

During the show, Craig explained that it was actually his grandfather who led him down this paranormal path.

“Yes, he did, many years ago when I was ten,” Craig said. “Shortly after my grandfather passed away, we felt his energy around us and could smell the tobacco smoke from his pipe. I was intrigued by paranormal activity from an early age.”

Craig, who claims his house was haunted when he was growing up, explained: “The house we lived in was very, very active. It was quite a big house, it had some big landings downstairs and it had a big old cellar.

When presenter Holly (pictured, with Phillip Schofield) asked if he ever gets scared of creepy Mary, Craig replied: “Sometimes it can feel a little awkward, but most of the time we’re pretty comfortable with Mary’s energy that’s around us.

‘My father, in particular, sat on the foot of his bed and preached to talk to his aunt who also passed away a few years ago.

“There were a lot of strange circumstances in that house that made you think what else was with you at that moment.”

In his twenties, Craig and two of his other friends decided to tour the UK to various locations to see what paranormal activity they could pick up – before then staring at his own paranormal event company.

About the strangest supernatural he’s ever witnessed, Craig explains: “In 2015 we went to Mill Street Barracks, myself and there were 20 other guests at this event – it was for the company of an outside event.

‘I was the guest medium that evening. We saw a lady there and the only words I can use to describe her is that she seemed to be possessed by something.

He continued: “Everyone had witnessed it that night and she now even comes on our page and communicates with members of the public and tells them in her own words what happened and her experiences with it.

“It was pretty scary to watch. You see things like that in movies and on TV, but when you’re there to see someone actually get overtaken by something, it’s pretty scary.’
