**Warning: Contains spoilers for The Traitors season 2.**


The final episode of The Traitors is set to air tonight (Friday 26th January), meaning the winner will soon be crowned.

From shock banishments to surprising murders and secret connections between cast members, the BBC reality TV show has been packed with drama this season.

But perhaps one of the biggest twists was the Traitors' decision to recruit original Faithful Andrew as one of their own.

Following Ross's banishment from the show last night (Thursday 25th January), Andrew is now working alongside just Harry.

Andrew loved everything about The Traitors season 1, including its format, gameplay and ability to immerse the audience in the game - and so he decided to give it a shot.

Admitting that he hasn't taken any risks or challenges in his life, Andrew chose to take part in The Traitors in order to step out of his comfort zone.

While on the show, Andrew hopes to inspire those who have had a traumatic experience or suffered with their mental health and "to tell them that if you keep fighting and believing, you will get to your dreams".

During the show, Andrew has had his name written down during the roundtables, but no one has had any evidence to pin being a Traitor on him. As he grows suspicious of his fellow Faithfuls, will Andrew be safe from banishment, or worse, murder?

If you are a Traitor, how far are you prepared to go to win the game?

"I'll do whatever it takes, within reason. I don't mind throwing people under the bus; it’s me or them, at the end of the day. I’ll just think of my family, my son - I want to make them proud and I want a better life for them.

"I'm a nice person deep down, and when my family are watching on the TV, they will know the real me. They know me, they know my morals and that I'm a nice person. On The Traitors, you're just playing a game, a game that you have to get totally immersed in."

If you're a Faithful, what do you think your game plan would be?

"I'll just get close. I'm very good at getting people to open up to me. For many, many years I've had lots of people tell me things, secrets that they haven't told their family, friends or parents. People say that I make them feel comfortable, so they open up to me.

"In every job I've ever had, in the bank, in the insurance world, I'm like the agony aunt. I always give everybody exactly the same respect, I treat everybody exactly the same way, whether they've got a million pounds or nothing at all.

So, I'll get close to people and I think I’ll form relationships, get talking to people, ask lots of probing, open questions. I’ll be very good at watching and reading people, just looking for little mistakes that they might make and finding out who the Traitors are."

Why did Andrew join The Traitors?

Revealing why he decided to apply for the show, Andrew explained he was "really immersed" in the first season and loved the format.

"I like the game play and thought I could be good at it," he said in a Q&A with the BBC.

"Over the last couple of years, I've been going through a personal growth journey where I've been trying to learn a lot about myself - I've grown a lot. I want to step out of my comfort zone. I've been a Steady Eddy all my life I suppose, never taking any risks or challenges. You only have one life, and I know that more than anyone because I suffered a serious accident many years ago.

"Your life is short, and it can get taken away at any moment. I live my life as best I can and take as many opportunities as possible that come my way. I never thought I'd get on the show in a million years. I'd like to inspire thousands of people out there who've maybe had a traumatic experience or suffered with their mental health. I want to inspire people and give them hope. To tell them that if you keep fighting and believing you will get to your dreams."
