A Christian participant on the BBC hit game show The Traitors was captured by cameras speaking of her Christian faith to her fellow contestant.

The popular show, now in its second series, attracted over 3 million views for its first live episode on Wednesday

The game involves a group of ordinary people completing a variety daily tasks for cash prizes, whilst trying to work out the identity of the traitors among them and remove them from the game, one by one, every evening.

The traitors meanwhile meet secretly each night and vote to eliminate one of the 'faithful'. The last player standing takes home £120,000.

Contestant Charlie, a Mental Health Area Manager from Bristol and a faithful, shared at Breakfast on episode 2 how she had been praying the night before, as the players found out who had survived the first traitors vote.  

"I'm a Christian so I was like 'please' [signalling prayer hands and looking upwards], but I don't know whether God really watches the traitors."

Fellow faithful player Ross, 28 a video director from Lancashire, replied "I'm sure he does...he or she!".

Before the show, Charlie shared with the Radio Times her tactics to prosper in the game of deception.

She said: "I'm going to really trust my instincts with people. I am going to play the game because that's what it is, a TV programme. The aim of the game really is to not look like you're a Traitor enough to be sent home. But then you don't want to be off the radar because you'll get murdered, you have to find that middle ground."
