The Traitors Maddy reveals unaired moment she ripped mic off and wanted to quit

Maddy Smedley has revealed that she was close to quitting The Traitors at one particularly tense point during the series, and even pulled her microphone off ready to make her exit.

The actress, 30, opened up about her experience on the hit BBC One show in an interview with BBC Radio 5's Rick Edwards, and spoke about her initial reaction when the series began.

"It was traumatic, to say the least, but I think if I'd have known it was going to be like that I would never have said yes," Maddy joked. "But I feel like I expected like Cluedo or a lovely game of something or Scrabble, which I'm used to at the care home [where I work]."

"I was walking into it and I was like 'what have I done?', like you can't really turn around then," she added.

Maddy went on to reveal that she'd actually be set on walking away from The Traitors, which is why she eventually shared her secret acting credits with her co-stars.

She said: "Everyone had to vote who their 100% was, like their best mate and no one picked me because I'd revealed I was an actor earlier that day because I'd wanted to leave the night before.

"I ripped my microphone off and I was like 'I want to leave, I'm an actor by the way guys'."

Rick then asked what made Maddy decide to share her profession with her fellow contestants.

The star explained: "It was very silly of me but it was the night before and I'd just lost my friend Rayan, not in real life, in the show. Then I thought Fay didn't like me so I was really upset, and I was like 'I don't want to do this game anymore'.

"So I was just like 'by the way guys I've done a bit of acting', and they were like acting as I was Meryl Streep the next day, I was like Jesus guys it was one scene."

During her time on the BBC One show Maddy formed close friendships with her fellow co-stars, most notably growing close to Kieran Tompsett.

The pair's friendship has continued off screen, and they each sharing sweet tributes to one another on social media recently to mark the end of The Traitors.

Sharing a snap of them together, Maddy wrote: "Parting gift yesss bro #myhero #thetraitors @kieran_tompsett also smash radio this morning! PS reckon the winners owe you a bit of dosh for what you did for them xxx".

Kieran soon repaid the favour and posted a clip of Maddy on The Traitors, with the sweet caption: "Thank you Maddy! Love you to bits sister friends for life.

"And brother and sister in EastEnders yeah thank you for the best memories xxx #thetraitors #thetraitorsbbc."
