Kelvin Cruickshank has made a career out of moving spirits on. Now, he's moving on himself.

The star of Sensing Murder - the controversial show that attempts to shed light on unsolved murder cases - will only appear briefly in the revived series when it screens next year.

He tells the latest edition of Woman's Weekly he's "going on to other things".

"Sensing Murder means a lot to me and always will. It changed my life and gave me the opportunity to try to help families who had lost loved ones under terrible circumstances. That's been a real honour," he tells WW.

"But when I went to work on the new series, it was really different and it didn't feel like I was meant to be there. I feel like I should be going on to other things.

When I have those kinds of feelings, I listen to them."

Cruickshank says he's moving on to a star in a US series called Haunted Hollywood, planning a UK tour and is fundraising for Movember.

But he says one Sensing Murder case will stay with him - the unsolved 1980 rape and murder of Alicia O'Reilly.

"One of the worst ones was Alicia O'Reilly - when I communicated with her in spirit, I saw what she went through and I threw up," he says.

"I cried for weeks after working on that episode. She was such a lovely little kid."
