Ahead The Traitors wrapping up tonight, the call-out for those keen to appear on the next series is already happening.
Since hitting screens at the end of 2022, the reality series hosted by Claudia Winkleman has picked up a loyal audience who can’t get enough of the twists, turns and backstabbing that takes place as contestants participate in banishments and murders.
This time around the 22 players have been whittled down to five, with Andrew and Harry hoping to avoid detection from Faithful’s Evie, Jazz and Mollie, with all hoping to walk away with the prize pool.
People have been flocking to tune in, with each episode attracting around six million viewers.
But for those hoping to take their love of the series one step further, the casting call for series 3 is now open.
The advert from Studio Lambert reads: ‘The Traitors is a competition series built on strategy and suspicion, filmed in the Scottish Highlands.

‘We are looking for fun, smart and strategic players to take part in the ultimate game of trust and treachery.’
Potential contestants are told to ‘expect trickery, betrayal and backstabbing’.
How to apply to be on The Traitors series 3
For those considering signing up, they need to register with their email and share details including their name, date of birth, occupation and more.
Following that, an application form with 12 questions help producers discover individual’s character traits.
The application opens with the candidate offered the chance to talk about themselves in a maximum 1000 characters.

The Traitors executive producer Mike Cotton told Metro.co.uk they didn’t want people to sign up who were searching for fame.
‘We’re actively looking for people who have got a passion for playing that game, and potentially might come to it with a game plan or a strategy,’ he said.
‘But we’re also looking for people who can bring something from their own lives to it, whether that’s a skillset, whether that’s from a past job, whether that’s a hobby, or some sort of life experience that they’ve had.
‘What I find fascinating is that you don’t have to be the smartest, you don’t have to be the prettiest, you don’t have to be the strongest to win this game.’
He added: ‘It’s a bit like when you’re putting together a jury I guess, in that we look for people from all sorts of different backgrounds and all walks of life that we can put together, that give us a diverse cross-section of the UK.’
What to expect from the application process

In the application, people are asked questions about whether they’ve tuned into The Traitors and if so, what they thought of previous players games.
They are also questioned about whether they’d like to be a Traitor or Faithful and to explain why, as well as what their strategy to win would be.
Things then get even more personal, with candidates asked to disclose the biggest lie they’ve ever told and if they got away with it.
Following on from that, they are then asked to share if they’re good at keeping secrets, and what is the biggest one they’ve kept.
The form then goes on to ask if they would be more likely to make a decision based on their head and heart and why, what has been the most significant moment in their life so far and how has it shaped them as a person, as well as asking how people closest to them would describe them.

It then rounds out with asking about what they are most passionate about in life, why they should be picked to compete and the all-important question about how they would spent the prize money if they won.
Applicants must also film a one-minute video that introduces themselves, outline their game plan and why they want to take part.
Filming for the third series will take part at Ardross Castle in the Scottish Highlands in spring or summer this year and applicants must be able to commit to filming for up to four weeks.
Applications, which can be found here, close in two weeks.
The Traitors finale airs tonight at 9pm on BBC One.
