Warning: This article contains spoilers for The Traitors
The BBC's hit new reality TV show The Traitors has reached its climatic conclusion with an explosive finale, which left viewers at home on the edge of their seats.
Although the clue is in the headline, just be aware that we're about to go into spoiler territory, so if you haven't yet caught the last episode then you might want to come back to this when you have.
Now that's out of the way, we're here to talk about former contestant Maddy Smedley, who has shared clues that she believes gave away the final 'Traitor'.
The show itself, which has gone down a treat and collected a legion of fans, sees 22 contestants gathered together to compete for a cash prize... but not everybody is on the same team.
Three of the contestants are Traitors who must work together in order to sabotage the whole process and win the prize for themselves.
Each day, the participants try to figure out each other's roles and decide who amongst them is getting banished in the hope of exiling all of the Traitors.
But one of the terrible trio managed to make it all the way to the finish line - well, nearly.
Right at the last second, with the £101,050 cash prize laid out in front of them, players Hannah Byczkowski, Aaron Evans and Meryl Williams turned on Wilfred Webster and outed him as a Traitor.
Much to their surprise, they were right. The series ended with plenty of tears, as Wilf grew emotional and described how hard it was to build such a close bond with his fellow contestants while trying to deceive them.
Even host Claudia Winkleman had a little cry as the team all professed their love for each other.
Many congratulated Wilf for playing the game so well, but Maddy - who was voted out despite being a 'Faithful' - has said she knew he was a Traitor thanks to a number of clues.
Speaking to the Metro, the actress - who was dubbed 'Maddy Marple' thanks to all her theories - said: "I had a few bullet points for Wilf.
"I thought, the way he reacted to Claire [Barratt] leaving, he was a bit over dramatic."
She hilariously added that his 'snack bag was full of Peperami', suggesting he 'needed more energy at night to be murdering people'.
Maddy had previously speculated whether Aaron was in cahoots Wilf, telling the outlet: "I thought that he’d led to Aaron having a panic attack and I thought a Traitor had gone against a Traitor."
Although she was voted out at the last hurdle, Maddy certainly made for a memorable participant, having 'stayed up late' in order to make detective notes in her journal.
"When I left, I didn’t know if any of my theories were correct and I had changed my mind about Aaron but even with Wilf and Meryl, I didn’t actually know... I felt a bit lost not knowing," she continued.
"It was like losing a court case if I was a solicitor or a police detective, I didn’t get the answers and that was really tragic and I went home trying to explain the show to the care home residents and they were even more confused.
"I didn’t think I’d be like that, actually. But I got so immersed in it. I’m going around the table calling out everyone and I’m like, I don’t remember this person!
"I must have really been so set on those people and my opinion and I love that."
