Claudia Winkleman has returned to our TV screens with The Traitors season two this winter, with a brand new cast of ordinary people hoping to win a prize pot of up to £120,000.

The series had the nation gripped last year when it first aired, and this time around its already exceeding expectations as viewers can't wait for the next collection of episodes to watch. So what days are the new episodes and what time?

The tense competition sees 22 strangers housed in a Scottish castle, taking on tasks and challenges. The catch however is that there are a few traitors amongst them, “killing off” contestants who they believe aren’t putting the effort in or, worse, are close to finding out who the traitors are.

Here’s everything you need to know about The Traitors season two, from when new episodes come out, the time it's on and the days it's on TV.
