Unveiling the truth: The Traitors’ stars dish on disappointing breakfast reality



It’s not all glitz and glamour behind the scenes of the BBC1 hit show “The Traitors.” Contestants from the series have broken their silence on the lavish breakfast spreads featured on the show, and it’s not the delicious feast it appears to be on screen.

At Ardross Castle in Scotland, where the contestants gather for their morning meals, the reality seems to fall short of the televised fantasy. Each day, the drama unfolds not just with the announcement of the next victim but also with a rather lacklustre breakfast scene.

Former contestant Ivan Brett took to X to reveal the shocking truth, confessing, “I hate to break it to you, but the breakfast is really not as good as it looks on #TheTraitors. It’s dry and not very appetising.”

And Ivan isn’t the only one airing grievances. Rayan Rachedi, a participant from the earlier series, echoed Ivan’s sentiments, comparing their breakfast experience to the more luxurious offerings on the Aussie version and lamenting their dry croissants from Big Tesco.

Even this year’s contestants have joined the chorus of complaints. Aubrey Emerson and Sonja Clarke, appearing on the spin-off show “The Traitors: Uncloaked,” shared their scathing reviews. Sonja bluntly stated, “Cold,” while Aubrey expressed disappointment, highlighting the lack of the expected lavish buffet and mentioning cold coffee and an abundance of melons.

However, the show’s host, Ed Gamble, jokingly reminded the guests that they were on “The Traitors: Uncloaked,” not the hospitality-focused “Four In A Bed” from Channel 4.

Despite the breakfast debacle, the show’s second series, hosted by Claudia Winkleman, kicked off to impressive viewership numbers. A staggering 8.2 million tuned in to watch the first three episodes live, with an additional estimated two million viewers streaming on BBC’s iPlayer.

A source close to the show revealed, “The iPlayer numbers are remarkable and signify a shift in TV viewing habits. While other popular shows have seen a migration to catch-up platforms, ‘The Traitors’ has managed to retain a significant live viewership, allowing fans to engage in real-time discussions about the show’s twists and turns.”

For those hooked on the drama, mark your calendars! “The Traitors” returns on Wednesday, January 10th, at 9 pm on BBC1.
