Love Island star Joanna Chimonides has been left terrified after a very spooky experience involving crystals.

The former ITV2 star dished all to Daily Star about the ghostly footsteps on her stairs while she was home alone, leaving both Joanna and her family spooked.

She explained: "I can’t deal with crystals. When people talk about crystals and all that, I’m like, 'No, get them away from me!' I was at my friend's house for the evening and she had a crystal, and I could sense it was near me. It's actually really bad."

But Joanna decided to give it a go when her sister gifted her a crystal meant to signify love.

"My sister said to me, 'If there are any spirits around you'll hear them walking up the stairs and scratching on walls.'

"I was like, 'This doesn't sound good!' but she said it's all positive. At this point my heart was racing – it wasn’t making me feel zen."

The star continued: "One night I was home alone and I was on Instagram, filming myself for a Story.

"My dogs aren't allowed upstairs and they know to stay downstairs, but on the video I said, 'Oh my god, I can hear my dog coming upstairs, I’m going to open the door and see his reaction.'"

Which is when things took a turn for the worst, as Joanna vowed: "I got this on camera – I literally opened the door quickly, nothing was there. But you can hear the footsteps in the video!

"I went downstairs, two of my dogs were fast asleep. I thought, 'This crystal has to go!'"

Joanna wasn't the only one in her family plagued by invisible footsteps, as her nan soon appeared at her door to ask: "Jo, can you hear walking up the stairs in the middle of the night?"

She continued: "It gets worse! I was staying out one night, and my brother texted me asking if I was downstairs. He said, 'Is that you walking downstairs? I thought I was home alone!'

"He went downstairs and nothing was there, but he could still hear the footsteps.

"I got rid of the crystal – I was like, never again!"

Probably for the best.

Joanna has teamed up with lingerie specialists Ann Summers for their new Animal Collection, and says she just loves working with the brand.

She gushed: "For me, Ann Summers is one of my favourite brands. They’re so well known, so established, everything they do – they’re all about body confidence and boosting girls’ confidence.

"I did a shoot for them last Halloween, and there was a group of girls all different shapes, sizes, personalities. We all made sure we boosted each other’s confidence on the shoot."
