Do you think you have what it takes to play the third series of The Traitors? Ahead of the final this week, applications have opened for the third series of the reality series.

There have been two series in the UK so far, with Claudia Winkleman at the helm as the show's host. Following the great success, TV bosses are now on the lookout for the contestants for the third series so they can film later this year.

TV bosses detailed exactly what they are looking for in the next 22 contestants to take on the most-talked about murder mystery game on TV. "The Traitors is a competition series built on strategy and suspicion, filmed in the Scottish Highlands," the advert said.

"We are looking for fun, smart and strategic players to take part in the ultimate game of trust and treachery." Potential candidates who have set their sights on taking part on The Traitors are told to "expect trickery, betrayal and backstabbing".

Of course, anyone who has watched the show will expect twists and turns and shocks and surprises for everyone involved in the game. But do you have what it takes? We take a look at the application process for The Traitors...
