Who is the host of Peacock Traitors?

Alan Cumming is set to present The Traitors. A graduate of the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama, Cumming began his professional career in both stage and television roles in the late 1980s. After graduating, the presenter worked extensively in Scottish theater, also acting on the soap opera Take The High Road.

Alan’s film career began with Ian Seller’s Prague in 1992, which earned him the Best Actor award at the Atlantic Film Festival and a Scottish BAFTA nomination for Best Actor. The presenter continued his career in the theater before making his Hollywood debut with movies like Circle of Friends, Emma and Golden Eye. Since then, the star has worked on both stage and film and remains a well-known figure in the entertainment industry.

Speaking about Alan Cumming as the host of The Traitors, Studio Lambert CEO Stephen Lambert told Deadline:

“In a game of secrets, suspicions and plot twists set in a Scottish castle, who better to take the helm and guide our players through the drama and challenging quests than Alan, who hails from Scotland.”

The Traitors will document all 20 contestants as they try to give it their all. The format looks promising and is sure to keep viewers hooked. However, with three traitors around them, will they manage to win the cash prize or will the faithful really be fooled? Only time will tell.
