The BBC has teased the second series of The Traitors with an exciting clip.

Fans are eagerly awaiting the next batch of episodes following the huge success of the first series last year.

Ahead of tonight's (October 28) Strictly Come Dancing, the BBC released a brief clip of host Claudia Winkleman in her iconic robe as she shushes to the camera, before words reveal that the show will be "coming soon". Watch below:

While an exact release date is yet to be confirmed, we should expect series 2 to premiere later this year.

When it does come back, fans should expect a few changes the second time around, which were previously teased by producer Mike Cotton.

"I think it's going to be totally different," he told Digital Spy and other press at the BAFTA Television Awards in May.

"It's that [the cast of series 1] turned up to play a game and not become famous, but I think for series 2 it's going to be different. It's like a good murder mystery. Everyone thinks they know how to play the game, but they have no idea!

"There will be new twists and turns in the game. Everyone knows the core premise of The Traitors, but there's more we can do with it."

Cotton also revealed that he expected the second series to be broadcast around Christmas/New Year time, like the first.

Meanwhile, series one star Wilf Webster previously revealed his advice for the next set of contestants, telling DS and other media: "Be true to your game plan.

"One thing is when you’re in there your emotions get the better of you, but I stuck to my game plan and I would have regretted it if I’d changed my game plan and then got voted out or whatever.

"I think you’ve just got to stick to what you’ve gone in there to do and not let the emotions change your mind."

The Traitors series 1 and the US version are available to stream on BBC iPlayer now. Series 2 of the UK version is coming soon.
