Rylan Clark is wanted for Celebrity Traitors
Rylan Clark is wanted for a celebrity edition of 'Traitors.'
The game show - which is fronted by 'Strictly Come Dancing' host Claudia Winkleman - follows a group of strangers all posing as 'Faithful' contestants to win a cash prize of up to £120,000 but features a small number of "traitors" who "murder" one of their fellow contestants each night and following a successful launch series, a string of famous faces including that of former 'X Factor'' star Rylan, amongst others, could be in the mix for a celebrity version.
Executive producer Sarah Fay told Metro.co.uk: "I think we’d want people who are so invested in the game and want to play the game, and I think that’s what brings the drama so well. We’ve been blown away by some of our celebrity support. ‘I’d love to see Rylan [Clark], he’d be incredible, but also Kathy Burke is a fan. I mean, Russell T Davies is a fan! I think I’d want very much a mixture of different types of celebs as well."
While no celebrity edition is confirmed as yet,it is thought that a version of the game show featuring famous faces could air as part of Children in Need or Comic Relief.
A TV insider told The Daily Mirror newspaper: "Everyone’s been thrilled with how much love there’s been for The Traitors and a celebrity version is a natural next step. Viewers will get to see different sides of some big names as they try to manipulate others or uncover the truth about fellow players."
Meanwhile, Claudia herself has already named a string of stars she would like to see take on the mental and physical challenges, including the likes of former 'EastEnders' actor Adam Woodyatt and 'This Morning' presenter Alison Hammond.
She said: "Victoria Coren, Kirsty Young, Adam Woodyatt, Stephen Fry, Alison Hammond… let's do it!"
