BBC Traitors star Tom says girlfriend ‘Alex always gets hit on’ after show

Former star of BBC show Traitors, Tom Elderfield, has said that his girlfriend Alex "always gets hit on" after the show.

Traitors launched last week and, hosted by Claudia Winkleman, it sees 22 people take part in game of trust and treachery in a bid to become the winner and pocket £120k.

Tom, 24, opened up on his relationship with Alex, with whom he secretly entered the show with in a couple, before they revealed all to their fellow contestants in last week's episode.

BMX rider Matt looked a little dejected at the news, having admitted that he was attracted to TV presenter Alex, 26.

Since Tom's elimination from the show, he opened up to Radio Times about whether or not he and Alex are still together.

On being asked if they were, Tom said: "Everyone's mentioned that! She's getting so many DMs from so many guys! There's been a DM that was like, 'Ah, you and Matt are such a better couple than you and Tom,' and it actually gives me so much clarity that people at home actually have no idea about us. It makes me a bit happier that they're saying this.

"But non-stop, everyone's asking, 'Are you still together? Are you still together?' And we are – but we always have been. We've gone through worse."

The pair have been dating for over five months, and Tom discussed the hardships of keeping their relationship a secret for the sake of the show.

Tom said: "The narrative that never made it into the show. When we first met, we kept our relationship secret for five months because we were working in a content house making viral videos online," he said. "It's a mad story. It's actually beyond mad but there's not enough episodes for them to tell our life story but that's ultimately why we could do it, we've literally lived through it already."

On how he felt watching Matt crush on Alex whilst keeping their relationship a secret, Tom said that he's "used to seeing it" in the outside world.

"He is obviously gorgeous, I can happily say how gorgeous he and Aaron are. Those two are both fit. It's so hard. But ultimately, I trust her. We go on nights out – you think that she doesn't get hit on? I'm so used to seeing it. But I'm very comfortable in our relationship, we're both very comfortable and both very trusting.

"So that's why actually if one of us was a Traitor and one of us was a Faithful, I would struggle to believe that we wouldn't be able to read it from each other. We know each other so well."
