The Traitors’ breakout star Amanda Lovett is revelling in her newfound status as a gay icon. Since her time on the BBC One series, the Welsh queen has garnered a dedicated following amongst the LGBTQ+ community for her duplicitous tactics and Academy Award-worthy acting skills.
Hosted by Claudia Winkleman, the BBC One series follows 22 strangers as they arrive at a castle in the Scottish Highlands to play “the ultimate game of detection, backstabbing and trust” in the hope of winning up to £120,000.
Amongst them are Traitors, a group of contestants selected by Winkleman whose job is to secretly murder their remaining players – the Faithfuls – without getting caught and to steal the prize fund for themselves.
Amanda was chosen as a Traitor on the first day alongside Alyssa Chan and Wilfred Webster. Although she gained the trust of her fellow contestants, Amanda was banished from the castle in episode 10 after raising suspicion for backstabbing her close friend Theo Mayne.
