The comedian has been confirmed as host of The Traitors: Uncloaked, an all-new visualised podcast that will run alongside the second season of the hit BBC murder-mystery series.

"The first series of The Traitors was my absolute obsession, and I cannot wait to delve deep into series 2 and dissect all the twists and turns it has to offer," said Gamble of his new role. "It goes without saying that I am 100% faithful."

The Traitors: Uncloaked will feature appearances from cast members and celebrity guests all offering their "best analysis and reaction to the latest betrayals, mind games and manipulations".

"Each episode will feature an exclusive interview with the contestants that get banished and murdered along the way, and bonus unseen footage where they learn the identity of the Traitors for the very first time," teases the podcast synopsis.

Episodes will air on BBC Two and BBC iPlayer, with an extended version with additional guests, further theories and essential analysis also available on BBC Sounds.

The Traitors: Uncloaked podcast will launch next year alongside The Traitors season 2 which currently has an "early 2024" release window.

Strictly host Claudia Winkleman will return to present the reality show that sees 22 strangers co-habitate in a remote Scottish castle using their detective skills to seek out who are the "Faithfuls" and the "Traitors" in their group.

Both parties compete against each other in the hope of winning up to £120,000.

The BBC have already confirmed that The Traitors will return for a third series following the first season's success, which aired in December 2022.

The Traitors series 1 and the US version are available to stream on BBC iPlayer now. Series 2 of the UK version is coming in early 2024.
