There's exciting TV news as The Traitors has a new spin-off, The Traitors: Uncloaked. The shiny new visualised podcast will be hosted by comedian, presenter and superfan Ed Gamble who will give fans inside access and essential expert analysis on the hit gameshow.

The award-winning BBC series is making a comeback next year with a smattering of new contestants and the spin-off show will delve deeper into the castle activity and everything beyond. Episodes will be dissected and viewers will be given exclusive access to the banished and murdered players, plus celebrity guests will be on hand to react to betrayals, mind games and manipulations.

Available on BBC Two and BBC iPlayer with an extended version on BBC Sounds, each episode will feature exclusive interviews with banished and murdered contestants, plus never-seen-before footage.

Avid fan and Pointless co-host Ed admitted: “The first series of The Traitors was my absolute obsession, and I cannot wait to delve deep into series 2 and dissect all the twists and turns it has to offer. It goes without saying that I am 100% faithful.”

"On top of that, we have footage of the moment banished and murdered players found out who the Traitors were amongst them - I can’t wait!”
