THE Traitors viewers were left heartbroken after a contestant discovered their show crush was in a relationship with his best mate.
The new BBC show, which is hosted by Claudia Winkleman, hit our screens last month.
The Traitors has seen 22 strangers play a psychological game of deception while living in a Scottish castle together.
Last night viewers were left in tears when Matt found out that he was falling for a girl who had a boyfriend.
Matt and Alex hit it off on day one, but she is actually in a relationship with Tom.
The pair decided to let the BMX athlete Matt know the truth, which left him heartbroken.
As the remaining contestants tried to guess who was a traitor and who was faithful, Tom decided to say: “I’m going to be honest, love you all… Alex isn’t a traitor. Straight up. She’s my girlfriend.”
He explained that they came into the castle as a couple to try and find traitors – leaving the rest of the gang lost for words.
As Alex explained their reasons why, Matt looked down at the table.
Viewers flocked to Twitter to share their heartbreak.
