But to win the prize pot, players must survive to the end of the game – they must avoid being ‘murdered’ or ‘banished’.

Watch The Traitors on TV and online

The Traitors will air three episodes each week on BBC One. The FINAL episodes are on Tuesday, 20 December at 9PM; Wednesday, 21 December at 9PM and – the grand final – Thursday, 22 December at 9PM.

Alternatively, episodes are available to watch online via the BBC iPlayer here after they’ve aired on TV.

The series will air for four weeks for a total of 12 episodes.

The BBC explain: “At the start of the game, a small number of players are secretly selected by Claudia to be The Traitors. The rest of the players are known as ‘The Faithful’ and none of The Faithful know who The Traitors are.

“Players are eliminated in one of two ways; each night, The Traitors meet in secret and decide to ‘murder’ one of The Faithful and next morning when the group meet for breakfast the ‘murdered’ player does not appear.

“Then, later in the day, all the players meet at the ‘Round Table’ and decide to ‘banish’ a player they suspect of being a Traitor. Whomever they pick will then reveal if they are indeed a Traitor or a Faithful.

“At the end of the game, the few remaining players will share the prize pot if they are all Faithful, but if there is still a Traitor among them, the Traitor takes all the prize money.”

Claudia Winkleman said: “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.”
