The Traitors viewers have been left confused after spotting what they believe is an editing blunder in last night’s episode.

WARNING: CONTAINS SPOILERS FOR THE TRAITORS EPISODE THREE

Loading…

Episode four finally landed on our screens yesterday after what felt like the longest wait of our lives – especially to those who binge-watched the first three instalments the week before when they dropped on iPlayer.

After Paul, Ash, Andrew and Meg were condemned to the dungeon under the guise of being at risk of murder that evening – excluding our two Traitors, of course – the players all met at the round table to banish the next contestant.

Andrew was told he’d been saved from murder, leaving Meg as the only Faithful who could be murdered.

Thankfully for the other Traitors, Ash ended up being booted out, though not before a tense vote from the other players.

The show concluded on a slightly bizarre cliffhanger as the events coordinator stood up to tell her fellow contestants if she was a Traitor or Faithful, only for the credits to suddenly start rolling.

But while some viewers were baffled by the odd ending, others had picked up on a strange detail during the round table, having noticed a potential ‘editing’ blip on one of the player’s chalk boards.

Anthony was among the many to select Ash as their suspected Traitor, turning his board round and saying her name out loud to confirm it.

Sharing the short clip on Twitter, one person wrote: “Am I crazy or have they edited Anthony’s board?”

When someone else said they felt it was just ‘someone’s head/chair and some weird lighting’, they added: “I mean when he picks it up - the text moves like the bits around it are blurred.”

One suggested it was a ‘videoing artefact caused by the massive black/white contrast’, while someone also said: “Could be the light was on it so they've made it easier to read.”

Over on Reddit, fans had another theory, with many suggesting Anthony had written the name ‘upside down’ accidentally.

“Anyone else notice how Anthony's card reveal was CGI’d?” one asked, with another Redditor replying: “I think he must have revealed it upside down.”

Tyla has reached out to the BBC for comment.

The Traitors continues on BBC One tonight at 9pm, with all previous episodes also available to watch on BBC iPlayer.
