What happened in season 2?

The last season of The Traitors was won by Faithfuls Chris 'CT' Tamburello and Trishelle Cannatella, successfully banishing Traitor Kate Chastain.

Last season saw a twist with two new rooms, the scullery, the folly and a stone-covered area, and Sheilds were now won in challenges as opposed to from the Armory.

Speaking about the show, Alan explained: "The more sort of theatrical elements of it – we were maybe a little tentative about in the first season, because it was so new, it was great to be able to embrace them fully. We found our stride and tone more in Season 2."
