The staggering number of people who tuned in to watch The Traitors season two finale on Friday night has been revealed.

And while we can’t say we’re surprised that Claudia Winkleman’s gameshow took the nation by storm, with some tense moments last night, the figures are immense.

After a season full of Bafta-worthy moments, blistering betrayals, Claudia’s incredible jumpers and that dreaded fizzy rosé, Traitor Harry Clark walked away with £95,150.

He managed to convince Faithful Mollie Pearce that he was on her side, slowly eliminating fellow Traitor Andrew Jenkins, and Faithfuls Evie Morrison and Jaz Singh.

Not to mention Harry having turned on original Traitors Paul GortonAsh Bibi and Miles Asteri, and recruiting then betraying Ross Carson too.

And now it’s been revealed how many people tuned in for his final moments of gameplaying.

The Traitors final peaked with 6,900,000 viewers, with an average of 5,500,000.

Of course, that made it the most watched programme on TV in the last week (since Monday), and beat the season one final last year which reached 3,100,000.

Following his win, Harry said: ‘I feel like I can breathe, cause I am me again, I am Harry again… I underestimated this massively, you come here and there is 22 amazing people, and from the off I have been a Traitor, I’ve had enough of being naughty and being bad because that was next level.’

When asked later on Uncloaked what he planned to do with his prize money, he shared: ’23 years old with that much money! I can’t even explain it. Money never makes me happy.

‘As long as I have a roof over my head, food, water, my family and my other half, that’s all I need.

‘That money is going to treat them, everything my mum and dad have done for me as kids, and they’ve given me everything I’ve needed, to be able to give them something in return is the best thing ever.’

Season one of The Traitors, having been developed from Dutch version De Verraders, went on to win two Bafta TV awards, but if you can’t get enough and are devastated it’s over, it’s not all bad news.

For those who are tempted to prove themselves playing the game, applications have opened for series three.

For the rest of us, more treachery is on the horizon with a brand new series having just dropped on iPlayer.

The Traitors is available to watch on BBC iPlayer.
