Did you converted the database and data to UTF-8 during recently after moved to new host?
Export the database from old host and Imort it again.

You can convert to utf8 as well and see if that fixes your issue.

Last time I converted my database to utf8 and that made all my post wrote in unicode ##%%$$$ so I have to dump my database again but just now I did again in test forum reading after Rumbaar post but this time it is fine. Don't know what I did last time

@arashfans sorry I provided you wrong information.

You should run the Convert HTML-entities to UTF-8 characters maintenance routine first.
