    Agatha Christie’s great-grandson has admitted the infamous murder mystery author was “quite evil” and a “great listener” which gave her work such magic.

    During Friday’s (September 15) visit to the ITV studios, Lorraine Kelly welcomed viewers back to the show where she discussed some of the biggest stories hitting the headlines.

    But arguably the interview she was most excited about was her chat with James Pritchard.

    The relative of the crime writer who recently worked on the new gripping Hercule Poirot film, A Haunting in Venice.

    After discussing the spooky thriller, which is now out in cinemas, the beloved Scott couldn't help but ask what the infamous writer was really like.

    She opened the discussion saying: "She was a remarkable woman, she had this real forensic mind, it’s so interesting that she thought of so many ways to murder people, it’s quite extraordinary isn’t it?"

    Filming from her holiday home in Torquey, James chuckled: "I mean it is quite scary. My father was her only grandchild and was very close and he would say that she was the greatest listener that he ever met and she was a very kind, gently, shy woman.

    "But somewhere in that mind there was an awful lot of evil and I don’t quite know where it came from."

    It comes after the producer warned crime fans that this Hollywood blockbuster was unlike many of her other well-loved novels.
