Celebrity status obviously has its benefits but for those that are hounded by the media for most of their lives, death is usually the end of the road, unless your name is Michael Jackson and then it just means that the hounding takes a new direction.
According to femalefirst.co.uk, the pop star is not likely to rest in peace for a while at least as the satellite broadcaster Sky One is planning a show with the famous ghost whisperer Derek Acorah, where he will attempt a live séance.
The plan is to have June Sarpong hosting the show, while Derek summons up the great singer from his sleep, no doubt to ask him what happened and probably even get him to sing a song or two.
It has to be a debatable question as to whether fans of Michael Jackson feel that this is a good or bad thing.
The show goes out next month on Sky One.
