Speaking about the new episodes, star Kiell said: “Series four is about the guest house and trying to create the perfect B&B experience. Mike and Alison are trying to get the best reviews – that is their main goal for the series.
“In the first episode, they get their first customers, and we see how Mike and Alison respond in their own different ways to praise and complaints.”
He went on to say: “They’ve only just started to accept Mike and Alison! So the idea of having even more people in the house – for Lady Button especially – is really not what the ghosts want.
“But Lady Button soon gets involved in the guests’ business and has strong opinions on how they’re conducting themselves in the house.”
Reflecting on the success of the series, Kiell said: “Because there’s definitely going to be a character in Ghosts that you can relate to.
“One of the characters will be like someone in your family or someone you live with.
“There will always be a character that will resonate with you. Everyone’s got their favourites and for their own reasons.
“The show is also full of so many things – stories, backstories, characters, personalities, jokes, different types of humour – that there’s something for everyone.”
