Derek Francis Jason Johnson (27 January 1950 – 3 January 2020), better known as Derek Acorah, was an English self-styled spiritual medium. He was best known for his television work on Most Haunted, shown on Living TV (2002–2010). Although he had a successful career in television, many people doubted Acorah's claims as a medium. He also starred in Derek Acorah's Ghost Towns from 2005 to 2006. He also starred in Celebrity Big Brother in 2017.

Acorah was born in Bootle, Liverpool. He was a footballer earlier in his life. He was signed to Liverpool in the Bill Shankly era, but never made a first team appearance.

On 3 January 2020, Acorah died of sepsis caused by pneumonia in Scarisbrick, Lancashire. He was 69.[1]
