THE TRAITORS: BBC CONFIRMS LAUNCH FOR REALITY COMPETITION

In this nail-biting psychological reality competition, Claudia Winkleman greets 22 strangers as they arrive at a beautiful castle in the Scottish Highlands to play the ultimate game of detection, backstabbing and trust, in the hope of winning up to £120,000.


But hidden amongst them are The Traitors whose job is to secretly murder a player every night, without getting caught. It’s up to the others, the Faithfuls, to try to detect who the traitors are, and banish them from the game, before they become their next victim.


For the lucky ones who survive to the end, they have the chance of winning that life-changing cash. But if a Traitor remains undetected, they’ll take all the money.

The Traitors will debut on BBC One on Tuesday 29 November at 9.30pm, right after Wales v England in the Men’s FIFA World Cup. The second episode will be broadcast on Wednesday 30 November at 9.15pm on BBC One following Poland v Argentina.


The third episode will be on at 9pm on Thursday 1 December on BBC One. In addition, the first three episodes will all be available on BBC iPlayer from 10.30pm on Tuesday 29 November.


Claudia Winkleman says: “I’m obsessed by psychological games and I couldn’t stop watching the Dutch version of the show. The fact that the BBC version is set in a castle in Scotland and the producers want me to wear tweed meant I was all in.”


The Traitors is a Studio Lambert Scotland production for BBC One and BBC iPlayer.
