HUGH Grant has revealed he ain’t afraid of no ghost -- he simply calls in an exorcist when things go bump in the night.

The 55-year-old actor called in the experts when one of his sons complained about seeing a mysterious boy appearing in their London house.

When other children started complaining of an invisible boy appearing in the corner of rooms, Hugh decided he’d had enough.

“I’m a rational person, well educated, not an idiot -- I find myself ringing a Ghostbuster. And it’s so shaming. I had to -- the poor little boy was terrified all night,” he explained on James Corden’s Late Late Show.

He hired a ghost expert to come and check things out and it sounds like things got a bit Most Haunted once she whipped out some spirit sticks and sage.
   
“She had all those sticks, and then her sticks went completely wild and she went, ‘Oooh, it’s so strong in here, I think I might throw up!’ She burnt about seven pounds of sage and banged a little drum and played an instrument and sang. And she said all the spirits are gone.”
   
Dismissing the spiritual cleansing as ‘a load of b*llocks,’ it sounds like the exorcism failed to be a complete success -- with the ghost only being banished outside.
   
“I said to the boy the next morning, ‘Did you feel happier last night?’ and he said, “No, there was a little boy at my window’.”
   
Maybe Hugh should ask his White Mischief co-star Charles Dance (who appears in the 2016 Ghostbuster reboot) to put him in touch with the real experts?
