Traitors fans think Claudia Winkleman ‘deserves a Bafta’ after calling out contestants mid-show

Traitors fans think Claudia Winkleman ‘deserves a Bafta’ after calling out contestants mid-show

Fans were loving the sassy comment

The Traitors fans are calling for host Claudia Winkleman to win a BAFTA after she called out contestants in the middle of Friday's (January 20) show.

Fans have been loving Claudia's presenting after she criticised 'sexist' behaviour among participants.

During Friday's episode, Traitors Andrew and Harry decided it would be a good idea to bring a male participant into the game, instead of eliminating another player.

When they revealed to Claudia that they would be recruiting Ross, Claudia made a sassy comment about how yet another man would be entering the game.

"It's just like the olden days," she quipped.

Andrew defended the decision, however, and said it was simply all about strategy.

"It's strategic, it's tactics," he said, while Harry added: "We're thinking game here, OK."

But at home, viewers were quick to pick up on Claudia's comment, and couldn't stop praising her for calling it out.

Claudia has spoken about problematic parts of the show.

One wrote: "Claudia CALLING OUT the traitors being all men honestly no other presenter in the UK is better."

While another said: "On the new traitor... 'Another man? It’s like the olden days'.

"If that hasn’t nailed the BAFTA for Claudia Winkleman then there is absolutely no justice.

"She is simply magnificent on The Traitors."

And a third added: "We’re all agreed she’s taking the Best Presenter NTA and breaking Ant & Dec’s 22-year streak, right?"

Meanwhile a fourth commented: "Not Claudia calling out the sausage party that's been the traitor's tower."

And a final said: "Bloody love Claudia calling out the misogyny within the ranks!"

Claudia recently spoke out about the 'problematic' aspect of the show.

Claudia Winkleman agreed with one fan's issue with the show.

The presenter was on BBC Radio 4's Woman's Hour when a listener named Harriet called in to ask: "Why is it that all the people that get murdered by the Traitors are all women bar one?

"And secondly, why are the Traitors so ageist? One of them was a woman and a bit older, so they murdered her straight away."

Claudia was in total agreement with Harriet's point, saying she'd like to have a proper talk with her about it.

She said: "Well, I mean, correct, Harriet. And I would like to sit down with Harriet and have quite a few conversations about it.

"I don't want to say anything, because what if people haven't watched? So I'm not going to say any names. But yeah, it's problematic.

"But then you'll carry on watching and you'll see, and that is all I can say."

The Traitors continues on BBC One at 9pm next Wednesday (January 24) followed by The Traitors: Uncloaked immediately afterwards on BBC Two.
