Derek has long associations with Australia, as he used to play football firstly for Liverpool FC and then here in Australia playing for the Australian League USC Lion before injury ended his career.

Derek comments ‘Australia holds a special place for me and I’ve been hoping to tour for some time but with touring and filming my TV shows, it simply hasn’t been possible. That’s why when we began discussing bringing the show to Australia with JVG Events last year, we were determined to make it happen and needless to say I’m thrilled that at long last I can get to meet Australian fans face to face! I’m especially looking forward to investigation some of Australia’s most haunted locations and can’t wait to see what stories and experiences we experience.

Derek hit international status when he became part of the international hit series Most Haunted,( ). Derek has also recently make the international headlines with his attempt to make contact with the spirit of Michael Jackson, Michael Jackson: The Live Seance and Michael Jackson: The Search For His Spirit which was broadcast in November 2009.

Owner of JVG Events ( Johanna Garnett ‘ As an event company we were receiving a lot of interest from people to host ghost hunting events so we developed ‘Spooky Encounters’ which specialises in ghostly events across Australia and Europe for people who have a interest in the paranormal world. We worked alongside Derek to create a tour of some of the most haunted locations here in Australia as well as giving people the opportunity to see Derek conduct his theatre shows.’
