New TV competition The Traitors has continued to keep viewers on their toes as two contestants who were originally axed were brought back in a dramatic twist.

In the BBC show’s debut episode last Tuesday, Amos, a 30-year-old doctor, and Kieran, a 42-year-old solutions consultant, were made to leave before the games had begun after they placed themselves as least likely to win the competition in a line-up.

However, during the latest instalment on Wednesday, the pair returned to the show without the other competitors initially realising.

After the group added a further £8,000 to the prize fund, bringing the total to £47,700, two members of the congregation were asked to stand.

They revealed themselves to be Amos and Kieran, leaving the other contestants in shock.

Winkleman said: “Kieran and Amos did not leave the game on day one. You can only leave The Traitors if you are murdered or banished.

“I’ve had them hidden away separately and they are now coming back to play the game.”

The episode also saw three faithfuls removed from the game – Ivan, John and Tom.

Cornish author Ivan fell victim to the banishment at the round table when Tom said he was adamant he was a traitor after using his magician skills of being able to read people.

Standing in front of the group before his departure, Ivan said: “No hard feelings. I came here to play a game and today that’s exactly what I got. This was fun.

“Tom, this was your big flourish and here’s the prestige – that was not my card, I’m a faithful.”

The traitors then decided spa therapist John, 49, was the next contestant they were going to “murder”.

While leaving, he said: “Just like Alex, if you vote for her tomorrow, you’ll find her standing here saying exactly what I’m about to say. I’m a faithful.”

Tom and Alex had caused a commotion when they revealed they were a couple in real life.

The show sees contestants play “the ultimate game of detection, backstabbing and trust” in the hope of winning up to £120,000.

To win the money, players must avoid being “murdered” or “banished”.

When the competition draws to a close, the remaining players will share the prize pot if they are all faithful.

However, if there is still an undetected traitor among them, the traitor walks away with the entire amount.

Throughout the competition, they will build up the cash pot through a series of games.

The Traitors continues on BBC One on Thursday at 9pm.
