Tony Livesey as the host of The Traitors 20 years ago, but the BBC decided not to air a version of The Traitors 20 years ago, but no one tuned in, February 7, 2024
A hit TV show The Traitors appeared on the BBC 20 years ago, but the show was cut after just one season because no one was interested in it. Despite the fact that Claudia Winkleman's lead came from the Dutch 'De Verraders' series, a replica of the program appeared on British television in 2004. Traitor, the early 00s' film, was hosted by a group of nine people who wanted to discover which of them had trealed the others. Every contestant was voted out of office by Tony Livesey to try and prevent them from winning the £5,000 cash prize. However, the participants were not allowed to sit at a table in a TV studio rather than in an aesthetic Scottish castle. Many in the 2004 tournament used similar name badges and held up cards as they tried to determine the game's villain.
