Joel Dommett and his wife Hannah Cooper opened up about trying their luck on the celebrity version of the hit show The Traitors, which is reportedly taking place in 2025. The couple, who attended the Emirates x HELLO! All Love Luncheon at Wimbledon on Wednesday, spoke about reality shows they’d like to try, with Joel saying: “The Traitors! There’s The Traitors… The idea of The Traitors is great, but in reality, I think I’d be so bad at it.”

Hannah joked: “We should go in like a couple who no one knows, but I think we’ve screwed that!” Joking about pretending not to know one another in the Traitors Castle, Joel said: “You’d do that so you could kiss other people,” to which Hannah replied: “Yeah! ‘We got divorced, it’s fine.

Speaking about the show to The Independent, Hannah gave some advice on how she had observed how to win the show. She said: “I can’t say anything else, but that is the smart way to enter the castle. [To think], ‘I don’t want to be a traitor; I’m just going to glide along here and not bother anyone. If I see someone I suspect, I’ll just get closer to them.’

“I think if you’re a Traitor, you feel you’re in control of the game – but I also feel you’re putting yourself on a ledge, so I think maybe I’d want to be a useful Faithful.”
