The Traitors star Harry Clarke is reportedly given special permission to leave the Army sooner rather than later as he pursues a TV career.

The Traitors winner Harry Clarke has reportedly been allowed to make a speedy exit from the Army in order to pursue a TV career.

The 23-year-old was serving as a lance corporal when he went into the show but decided to quit after scooping the cash prize fund.

Normally the exit route from the Army is a 12-month process, but The Sun reports that he has been given special permission to leave sooner given his good standing with the forces.

A source told the newspaper: "After serving his country for six years there's no questioning Harry's commitment to the Army, but as he chases a media career they also know he is great PR for the services.

"He's never hidden the fact that he used his military training to help him win on The Traitors and, somehow, managed to outfox everybody while still keeping their affection and respect.

"Harry isn't rushing into signing up for any shows that are likely to make the Army wonder why he gave up a good job."

Clarke has reportedly turned down an offer to appear on Celebrity Big Brother recently but is said to be considering a stint on I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!
