I was on The Traitors – there are secret rules about drinking, contacting our families and days off from filming | The Sun

A CONTESTANT from BBC's The Traitors has revealed secrets from the new reality series.

Presented by Strictly's Claudia Winkleman, the brand new reality series sees 22 contestants enter a castle in the Scottish Highlands and tasked with uncovering their unfaithful counterparts.

The faithful players must uncover the traitors among them before being 'killed' or banished to be in with a shot of winning £120,000.

The show has gripped viewers since it began – and now one of the contestants has answered the questions we've all been asking.

Meryl, 25, took to her TikTok account to share secrets from the show – from boozing to outside contact.

Viewers usually see contestants wind down after a dramatic day at the end of each episode.

However, call centre worker Meryl has revealed producers don't provide alcohol each night.

"We didn’t drink every night, we got it every couple of nights and it was like rationed," she said, adding: "Well not rationed, but we got like one or two glasses each."

She went on to explain how phones are not allowed in the castle, however, they do get to hear from friends and family.

Bosses regularly update their loved ones on how they're doing and contestants get video messages once a week.

When it comes to filming the series, the schedule is very hectic, as Meryl said they all get just one day off.

Cameras roll Monday to Saturday from early morning until late at night, while everyone rests on Sundays.

Speaking about the limited downtime, Meryl said: "When it came to Sunday, you literally slept the whole day. Like I literally woke up at 12. I’d chill for a little bit and watch movies and stuff in the room.

"And then I literally went back to sleep at like three and then I woke up again for dinner and then I went back to sleep."

Despite viewers watching dramatic showdowns, all contestants have kept in touch with one big group chat.

"We speak all the time; I’m talking like 24/7. Genuinely 24 hours a day. We always speak, there’s always someone if you’ve got a problem you can write in the chat and then someone will reply back to you and someone will say how they feel.

"And it’s good because I just feel like it’s good to keep in touch with everyone especially right now as the show’s airing. So we’re all in contact and we’re always speaking and stuff which is good."
