The Traitors season 2 episode 5 date

The Traitors season 2 episode 5 will air live on BBC One on Thursday, January 11 at 9 pm. Episode 5 will be uploaded to BBC iPlayer at 9 pm, at the same time it airs on live television.

An official Twitter account for The Traitors UK confirmed episodes 5 and 6 won’t be uploaded to iPlayer like the first week. They said: “Correct. Episode 5 tomorrow night.”

One fan wasn’t happy and said: “Poor move. We should be allowed to watch at our own pace. Having to wait according to the schedule does not suit the needs of the viewers in this day and age.”

BBC confirms episode 6 release

Episode 6 will air on BBC One at 9 pm on Friday night, and then shortly be uploaded to iPlayer. Then, viewers will have to wait a week to watch upcoming episodes, with episode 7 airing on January 17.

Although episodes 1 to 3 were all released on launch night, on Wednesday, January 3, producers took the decision to wait until the live episode has aired before uploading episodes to the catch-up platform.

It comes after viewers kept sharing spoilers on Twitter. Episode 4 ended with Ash revealing she’s a traitor as the cliffhanger, but this was disappointing for fans as we all knew her game plan.
