The Traitors US is back for another fix of scheming and manipulation in the Scottish Highlands and the famous cast includes some UK stars.

BBC's reality contest has been a huge hit with its two UK seasons but if 2025 seems like too long to wait for the next show, luckily you can tune into some of the international versions before then - including the American series this week.

It's a little different on the US show as the cast includes celebrities (with the UK recently having confirmed its own celebrity version), and while some may not be familiar to a UK audience, there are a couple of big names from our own shores taking part. Here's the full line-up for the series.

As usual, the series is set to begin with a large cast who will be brutally whittled down over the episodes as contestants are either "murdered" or banished.

We're yet to find out who the Traitors and the Faithfuls will be, but these are the celebrity contestants taking part.

Continuing her bid to dominate reality TV is 2022 Love Island winner Ekin-su Culculoglu, who'll be joining the US stars for The Traitors.

Culculoglu has already taken part in Dancing On Ice and Celebrity Big Brother, both of which she exited earlier than expected, but can she make it to the final this time?

Arguably, the scheming and backstabbing needed for The Traitors has a little in common with being on Love Island, but she'll need to convince the rest of the cast - who might not know her - to trust her.

Former Speaker of the House of Commons and MP John Bercow seems perfectly suited to the qualities needed to take a Traitors round table in is stride.

The politician is known for his distinctive shout of "Order!" in Parliament, which could well come in handy when discussions get a little tense.

His political career will also have given him plenty of practise at forming alliances and influencing others, but will anyone trust a politician?

The rest of the cast includes a number of US reality stars who will be used to fighting it out in a tense situation, as well as a couple of athletes.

Real Housewives fans may already be familiar with a few of the cast, which includes Larsa Pippen from the Miami series, Phaedra Parks and Sheree Whitfield from Atlanta, and the Orange County series' Tamra Judge.

Big Brother US and Survivor are also providing a hefty number of contestants this season, including former housemates Dan Gheesling and Janelle Pierzina, and Survivor alumni Parvati Shallow and Sandra Diaz-Twine.

Culculoglu might find an ally in Love Island US star Carsten "Bergie" Bergersen, while The Bachelor's Peter Weber also joins the cast along with Bling Empire's Kevin Kreider, Shahs of Sunset star Mercedes "MJ" Javid, and Trishelle Cannatella from The Real World: Las Vegas.

RuPaul's Drag Race star Peppermint has a seat at the round table, as do The Challenge stars Chris "C.T." Tamburello and Johnny "Bananas" Devenanzio.

Completing the cast are boxer Deontay Wilder, basketball player Marcus Jordan and Dancing With the Stars' Maksim Chmerkovskiy.

Although the US series is filmed in the same location as the UK version - Ardross Castle in the Scottish Highlands - there will be a different host presiding over the game.

Claudia Winkleman gives over the castle to Scottish actor Alan Cumming, who also hosted the first season of the US show.

Cumming told Radio X's Chris Moyles Show that he and Winkleman had filmed Traitors series back to back, but had not actually met at the castle, saying: "We leave notes to each other on the makeup mirror and that’s all. She kisses the makeup mirror... Kisses a paper towel and sticks it onto the makeup mirror."

Good news for Traitors fans - you can watch all episodes of the new US season here in the UK.

The full series will land as a boxset on BBC iPlayer on Wednesday (12 June) and will also air on BBC Three and BBC One.

The show will be available on BBC One as double-bills on Wednesday nights at 10.40pm for six weeks from Wednesday and will be available on BBC Three across three weeks as follows:

  • Wednesday 12 June (double-bill), Thursday 13 June, Friday 14 June

There is also a reunion episode that streams on BBC iPlayer with the rest of the series from Wednesday and airs on BBC Three on Thursday, 27 June.
