We have a new reality show starting on BBC1 Tues night called The Traitors which looks quite interesting. I will definitely give it a try. I notice they are starting it just as I'm a Celeb..... has ended. 😉

Claudia Winkelman is hosting which should be fun.

I'll give it a try but I'm not that keen on Claudia W so I'll see how it goes.

Charleygirl5 Mon 28-Nov-22 14:46:08

I also will watch it- I also cannot stand Claudia but I doubt there is little else on.

In the rare event that you might read this, Claudia, I love you.

I try not to let the presenter(s) put me off a programme. Not really keen on Ant and Dec because they are such a well-oiled machine it becomes rather predictive. CW's fringe and make-up drives me nuts but I am prepared to look the other way.

Claudia is hilarious. She always cheers me up.

PinkCosmos Mon 28-Nov-22 15:35:48

At least the competitors are ordinary people and not 'celebrities'.

I'm not a massive fan of CW but quite fancy this programme.

I hope it isn't too dumbed down

In the trailers, Claudia’s fringe hanging in her eyes annoyed me. Wish she would get it trimmed a bit shorter.

Don’t think I shall watch it.

Unlike a previous poster, if I don't like a presenter I can't watch a programme. And I really cannot bear Claudia Winkleman, so won't be watching this. Thank heaven for i-player ...

I wonder why she’s such a marmite character I don’t mind her at all CW I mean of course I wouldn’t say I love her but she’s ok
I didn’t like the Irish comedian I say with a very small c that did the pottery programme but it didn’t stop me enjoying the show itself

Calendargirl - I think CW has had her fringe trimmed …

Oh, can’t say I’ve noticed then!

I love Claudia, she really makes me laugh.

Doodledog Tue 29-Nov-22 21:56:51

I'm enjoying it so far.

I'm not 100% sure what the rules are, but it looks promising. I was shocked at the shocking thing, too grin

Consider myself to be reasonably bright but have absolutely no idea how this show works. Someone is about to be ‘murdered’, never to be seen again. No explanation as to how that’s going to happen!

Zoejory Tue 29-Nov-22 22:27:28

I love Claudia. I love her fringe and her boots and her voice. Also sense of humour. Just about everything.

Doodledog Tue 29-Nov-22 22:31:39

They are voted off by the traitors and are told overnight, so they just don't appear the next morning at breakfast.

tanith Tue 29-Nov-22 22:41:12

Interesting so far, can’t wait to see who’s gone in the morning.

Doodledog Tue 29-Nov-22 22:45:01

There are three episodes up on iPlayer grin.

I'm watching, but will say nothing until they've aired.

Chestnut Tue 29-Nov-22 23:47:12

I loved it! Although I skipped most of the challenge as I've had enough of them lately. I love the secrecy aspect, the castle and the way Claudia creeps around in the shadows. She is so well suited to that role with her black eye make-up, ha ha. She's like a sinister, ruthless Morticia Addams character and she's very good at it.

Doodledog Tue 29-Nov-22 23:49:26

I'm on episode 3 now, and it gets better as it goes along.

There are only 3 on iPlayer, so I don't know what happens at the end of this one. Is it on next week?

Chestnut Tue 29-Nov-22 23:51:57

It's on every night like I'm a celeb.... so I don't know why they have put three online already. It would be better to put them up each night as we go along and keep people guessing.

Doodledog Tue 29-Nov-22 23:55:54

I hope they put another 3 up tomorrow. I'm really enjoying it, and I'm a night owl, so like something undemanding to watch in the small hours.

Looking forward to it but can’t stand Claudia. Sorry Claudia.
