The Highland Voices choir were 'delighted' to have been cast on the hit TV show, The Traitors, as they sang an ominous tune for a morbid scene after another faithful was "murdered" (eliminated from the game).

Highland Voices Gospel Choir was created by musical director Tony Henry in 2017 and is based in Inverness.

Tony is an acclaimed British opera singer who has performed many leading tenor roles for the European chamber opera, English touring opera, Castleward opera north and in Raymond Gubbay productions at the royal Albert Hall.

Tony has also performed for the likes of Her Majesty the Queen Elizabeth, His Royal Highness the Prince Edward, David and Victoria Beckham, Charlize Theron and many more.

Last week, the Highland Voices made it onto the BBC hit TV show, The Traitors.

The group made an ominous appearance as they sang to the players their next clue in a morbid scene whereby the contestants went on a trail through the eerie Highland woodland to discover who was next on the traitors hit list.

When talking about when they were approached to go on the show, Tony said: "They got in touch last year regarding filming for a TV show.

"At first we didn't know what show until we signed NDA's. It's been a massive secret and we are so delighted to finally show everyone.

"We filmed the episode in the summer of last year."

Tony, who is a voice coach for the annual Ness Factor charity event for Highland Hospice, said: "We are absolutely so overwhelmed by the response!

"They filmed the show like a live scene so the tension and reactions are real.

"It was an incredible experience, however, we didn't get a preview so we were all very nervous about how it would turn out.

"All we knew was, it was meant to be disturbing and I think we nailed that. Highland Voices is so excited to have been a part of such an iconic piece of TV history."
