Squid Game, The Challenge has won the reality category at the BAFTA TV Awards. The UK-produced Netflix show beat off competition from shows such as Banged Up and Married At First Sight. A competition version of Korean drama Squid Game, it pitted 456 payers against each other in a big to win a massive cash prize.

The challenges ranged from the infamous “Red Light Green Light” from the 2021 drama, in which contestants had to avoid moving while in the eyeline of a horrifying giant doll, to new ones based on children’s games such as Battleship. One player ultimately walked away with $4.56M.

The Traitors producer Studio Lambert and The Garden, a unique co-production of two prominent British unscripted producers from disparate production firms, are behind the project.

Last year, when the division was called Reality and Constructed Factual, the Traitors emerged victorious.

The Royal Festival Hall in London is the venue for today’s (May 12) awards ceremony. Numerous of the biggest talents in the UK are there, and Romesh Ranganathan and Rob Beckett are back as hosts.
