The BBC is reportedly creating a celebrity spin-off of the hit game show, The Traitors.

It comes after reports that the producers behind the show have been keeping a close eye on celebrities who are fans of The Traitors and would make good players.

The USA edition of the murder game features celebrities, with the newest series including Love Island's Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu and former Speaker of the House of Commons, John Bercow.

Now, The Sun is reporting that the BBC is hoping the likes of Coleen Rooney and Rebekah Vardy could take part in the UK's celebrity The Traitors.

Alongside the Wagatha Christie stars, there are also suggestions that Match of the Day host Gary Lineker and former Health Secretary Matt Hancock could feature.

Speaking to The Sun, an insider said: "Bosses want big names as the show is getting big viewing figures, and they know they'll have plenty to choose from as The Traitors has huge fans within the showbiz world."

Ever since The Traitors began in the UK in 2022, it's brought its big audience with the last series gaining over 34 million views on BBC iPlayer.

Now after the civilian version has been claimed as a success, the BBC believes the time is right for a celebrity version.

As The Sun's source shared: "They're shooting for the stars too, because they don't see why they can't attract the same calibre of people that currently sign up for Strictly and I'm A Celebrity."

Host of The Traitors, Claudia Winkleman has already shared who she would like to see in the BBC show,

Including the likes of Hollywood star Andrew Garfield, presenters Stephen Fry, Victoria Coren Mitchell and EastEnders legend Adam Woodyatt.

You can watch The Traitors now on BBC iPlayer.
