In the tense episode, Traitors Harry and Andrew were allowed to recruit a Faithful instead of murder. This rule comes into play when there are less than three Traitors and they chose Ross, which continues a bit of a pattern.
Paul, who has now been banished, and Harry picked Andrew to recruit, and once again they have chosen a man.
The decision to not pick a female Faithful again did not get past Claudia, 52, who made a cutting remark.
‘Another man? Good, it’s like the olden days,’ she quipped.
A visibly shocked Andrew’s mouth dropped open, and Harry nervously giggled, then they both defended themselves arguing it was part of their game. Claudia simply walked off with their envelope which would deliver the news to Ross.

The exchange may have been only seconds long, but it was enough to catch the attention of viewers who took to X, formerly Twitter, to praise the moment.
‘Claudia really said “f**k the patriarchy”,’ wrote account Mrk Phllps.
Fan Aaron Porter simply wrote: ‘Give Claudia Winkleman the BAFTA now.’

‘CLAUDIA WINKLEMAN THE WOMAN THAT YOU ARE,’ wrote account SuperTV.
‘Oh to be this iconic, clever, funny, stylish and slightly bonkers,’ commented viewer Im Shane Reaction.
TV critic Scott Bryan said ‘no other presenter in the UK is better’.
Basically, there was a lot of love for our Claudia, as there very well should be.

At the end of the episode, we see Ross react to being asked to switch sides. He accepted and quickly asked why they murdered his mum Dianne (although, of course, they don’t know about the familial connection).
Harry told Ross that she was getting ‘too brave’ and needed to ‘put in her place’. Her son did not like that at all and vowed to get revenge. And now we have five long days to wait to find out what’s going to happen.
The Traitors continues on BBC One on Wednesday at 9pm.
