Participants in Netflix's real-life Squid Game have reportedly been heard screaming for "medics" as they were carried out on "stretchers".
Netflix has reportedly been filming a secret, separate reality competition show based on the hot-grossing fictional Korean show that became a world number-one success in 2021.
In the new reality series, participants are reportedly battling it out for £3.7million as they face formidable challenges testing them on every level, according to The Sun.

However, recent reports claim that contestants at the UK studios described "extreme" conditions while filming for the show as temperatures allegedly fell to a frosty -3C.
One player told The Sun: "Even if hypothermia kicked in, then people were willing to stay for as long as possible because a lot of money was on the line.
"Too many were determined not to move, so they stood there for far too long.
"There were people arriving thinking they were going to be millionaires, but they left in tears."

Another contestant said they were given thermal clothing to keep warm as it was "freezing" at the filming location, along with a "blood vest" which explodes and simulates being shot if someone gets knocked out.
A total of 456 players, the same as in the original series, flew in from all over the globe to compete on the show, filmed at Cardington Studios, a former RAF base near Bedford.
It's been claimed that some started to feel unwell during the first game, Red Light, Green Light and hundreds were eliminated in the first round and then stayed in bunk beds at the studios.
Netflix and producers Studio Lambert and The Garden have since issued a statement to reassure people that nobody was seriously injured in the real-life Squid Game.
They said: "While it was very cold on set – and participants were prepared for that – any claims of serious injury are untrue.
"We care deeply about the health and safety of our cast and crew and invested in all the appropriate safety procedures."
