THE TRAITORS: REPORTS BBC ARE PLANNING CELEBRITY VERSION 'NOT TRUE'

The BBC are reportedly planning a 'celebrity series' of The Traitors following the success of the first two regular series, according to reports from The Sun newspaper.


However, TV Zone understands that a celebrity series has not been commissioned and is highly unlikely to happen in the near future, outside of possible sketches for charity events such as Red Nose Day.



Meanwhile, whilst the second series continues this week on BBC One, the show has been recommissioned for a third series on BBC One, with applications open for those who wish to play the game.


Hosted by Claudia Winkleman, The Traitors is a nail-biting psychological reality competition where 22 strangers play the ultimate game of detection, backstabbing and trust, in the hope of winning up to £120,000.




Stephen Lambert, CEO of Studio Lambert, says: “We’re delighted a third series of The Traitors has been confirmed today ahead of the second series’ arrival on BBC One and BBC iPlayer...



"The Traitors has been so warmly received by viewers, critics and award juries alike. Claudia and the team look forward to keeping audiences on the edge of their seats again with ever more thrilling missions and exceptional players competing in this gripping game of bluff and skill.”

The Traitors (12 x 60) is produced by Studio Lambert Scotland for BBC One and BBC iPlayer.
