London, Jan 28 (ANI): A new survey has revealed that most Britons think it is possible to talk to the dead - and the person they would most like to reach is Princess Diana.
According to the poll on modern attitudes towards spiritualism, two-thirds of them believe in life after death, a third think there is a heaven and a fifth expect to be reincarnated, reports the Daily Express.
Some 58 per cent of Britons believe their dead loved ones are "with them in spirit" - while 40 per cent believe in guardian angels.
A fifth claim to have seen a ghost or felt the presence of a spirit and 53 per cent believe that psychics are able to communicate with the dead.
Diana was the most popular choice of famous person to contact, with Albert Einstein and Marilyn Monroe in second and third place.
But the most common ghost sighting is of a relative or friend, the survey of 3,000 adults revealed.
The poll, by Dr Penny Sartori, was conducted to mark the release of Hereafter, directed by Clint Eastwood. The film is about a man who can talk to the dead.
Two out of five of those surveyed admitted they would like to speak to a deceased loved one.
One in five said they had visited a medium or psychic, spending an average of 31 pounds per visit.
Almost the same number believed that someone in his or her family had a psychic ability. (ANI)
