The Traitors’ Theo shares moment ‘penny dropped’ on Amanda’s true identity

The Traitors star Theo Maybe has revealed the exact moment that the "penny dropped" for him and he realised who the secret Traitors were.

The Leeds lad was banished during Friday's episode after his co-stars voted for him, believing he was one of the Traitors, when he was in fact a Faithful.

What was particularly shocking was Amanda Lovett got the conversation going about Theo being a Traitor when she'd said she had 100% trust in him the previous night.

Speaking exclusively to Daily Star, Theo said: "I think she's 110% shot herself in the foot, she should've kept me under her wing because she had me and Aaron hooked, both like, 'Yes Amanda, we'll do anything for you,' she's totally screwed it now."

Theo told us he thinks Amanda has been playing a "phenomenal" game alongside her fellow Traitor Wilfred Webster but he figured everything out the night he was eliminated.

"That night when I left the show, the penny dropped and I was like, 'It's Amanda, it is Amanda'," he said.

"But once you walk round that corner you're done. It's so weird to watch it back, I'm just sat there like, 'Really?'"

Theo became a favourite among fans thanks to his honest emotions and hilarious reactions during the roundtables and challenges.

But he admitted things were starting to piece themselves together and he was getting close to exposing the Traitors – despite telling people he thought it was Aaron Evans and Fay Greaves in the episode.

"I was starting to piece things together, and if I hadn't spoke at that roundtable I probably would've got both of them," Theo said.

"But obviously I decided to. I was just taking it in, watching, 'it's definitely you'.

"The penny drops at one point and you start to piece it together but you get caught in the game.

"It's so intense, there's so much going on, you don't have time to scratch your a***."

Despite being so close to the final and the chance of winning the money, Theo confessed he was happy to have been eliminated.

He told us: "I always go back to everything happens for a reason. I don't think I could've stayed in there much longer, it was getting really hostile.

"You weren't turning on people you'd never met, these were people you were building friendships with.

"I'd spent six episodes emotional. This week I'd had a good week, good challenges, got my point across about acceptance and stuff like that, then I had a good banishment, but I don't think I could've been in there much longer."

He confessed: "I'd have been brutal, I'd be going at people and we don't want to see that.

"Angry Theo – nobody wants to see angry Theo, I'd be jumping on the table going at Wilf. I was ready to go."
