Admitting to Ellen that there are ghosts in her home, she explained: "It's not [haunted] like before. I didn't see these but somebody didn't want to work there anymore because the piano played by its self, and he wouldn't go to the third floor because he saw…"

She added: "Lights go on and off, or the doors and windows open and close. I've seen some of it."

"But a lot of people in the house have seen it," added Salma, explaining: "My husband thinks it's absolutely nonsense, I'm always the negotiater in the middle so I said, I'm going to bring somebody, even if it's not true, at least they might psychologically think it's over."
