WINNER of The Traitors Aaron Evans has admitted it was not his intention to go on the show to speak about his ADHD condition.
Aaron found himself at the centre of a heated row sparked by early casualty to the game John who wickedly accused Aaron of being a traitor and slammed him for repeatedly asking questions.
However the deserving winner opened up on the show and admitted that as a result of his ADHD his actions can sometimes be misconstrued by others.
Now in a chat with The Sun and other press, Aaron has revealed it was never his plan to go on the programme and be so vulnerable – but he is glad he did.
Aaron told us: “I completely forgot I even said anything about the ADHD so it didn’t affect how I played it.”
He revealed his plans to enter the show with a game plan ‘went out the window on day two’, toevoeging: “Literally by then, the only game plan I was playing was on the challenges. That was the only time as I just wanted to smash the challenge every time and I was just being myself the whole way through.”
When asked if he felt he deserved an apology from John over the incident which sparked a furious fan backlash, Aaron told The Sun: “I think John played the game how he wanted to play it so regardless of anything, it was his game.”
He also divulged how he has had an overwhelming amount of support from fans of the show after bravely showing such a vulnerable side to himself.
Hy het bygevoeg: “Ja, its mainly been messages from men.

“It feels so weird looking back I was just trying to be myself and I would say I’m quite an emotional person and they message me and say, ‘This has helped me so much’ and ‘thank you so much for opening up on national TV’.
“At a point I was like, I wish I wasn’t so emotional, but as soon as I got a message saying, ‘I’m so glad you did that, it’s helped me out so much’, I was more than relived.”
Aaron will be giving most of his winnings to his mum for a deposit on a house but has confirmed he has kept around £3,000 to spend on travelling.
He has also admitted he considered giving some money to fellow player Nicky who was the first person to be banished from the game.
Die 24 year old said: “Nicky, I said to her from the very beginning that I wanted to help her get her arm.
“I’ve been trying to help out loads and I’ll definitely be donating to her and do as much work for her as possible.”
Nicky was hoping to win to use the cash to fund a bionic hand after losing hers in an accident.
She has since set up a fundraising page to help her achieve her goal.
