It's been rumoured that the BBC is planning a celebrity version of The Traitors following the success of season 1, which premiered in November 2022.


While nothing is confirmed, the show's host Claudia Winkleman has some thoughts on who she'd like to see in the line-up if it ever does happen.

As well as herself, Claudia has her eye on a few celebs, including EastEnders actor Adam Woodyatt – best known for playing Ian Beale on the long-running soap – and Only Connect host Victoria Coren Mitchell.

Asked who she'd like to see on a celebrity version, the host said: "Victoria Coren Mitchell so I can cuddle her – I know her, that sounds weird – Adam Woodyatt, always. Andrew Garfield and I'll have Stephen Fry as well."

Claudia would also like to give the game a go herself, adding: "I think I'd be terrible at all of it. I so want to play though. I so want to play!"

So, would she like to be a Traitor or Faithful?

"I think if you're a Traitor, you feel like you're in control of the game, but I also think you're putting yourself on the ledge. I think maybe I'd want to be a useful Faithful, which is quite particular."

Season 2 kicked on BBC oOe on Wednesday 3rd January, with 22 contestants arriving at the Scottish castle. The first three Traitors were chosen, with a new twist thrown into the mix as they were given the opportunity to select a fourth Traitor.

Episodes 2 and 3 were then made available on BBC iPlayer, with the fourth Traitor finally revealed – a choice Claudia wasn't quite keen on.

Speaking to and other press, Claudia revealed she was "angry" about the fourth Traitor, saying: "We weren't in control of the fourth [Traitor], which was – not that I'm a control freak or anything – but I was angry about that!"

The Traitors season 2 continues at 9pm on Thursday 4th January on BBC One and BBC iPlayer.
