Furious real-life Squid Game contestants consider legal action against Netflix

Furious contestants who have taken part in a new reality show based on Squid Game are considering legal action against Netflix. 

Dozens of players have blasted the production claiming they were ‘treated like animals’ and made to stand for hours in freezing temperatures as filming commenced at the Cardington TV Studios in Bedford on Monday. 

The streaming platform has been secretly shooting a reality version based on the deadly fictional competition, with participants battling it out for the biggest cash prize in TV history – £3.7million. 

As temperatures at the UK studios plummeted to -3C, some disgruntled players have hit out over having to film in such cold conditions and are even considering suing Netflix. 

‘We were tortured for eight hours. We were just fodder. You wouldn’t treat animals like that. I know the show was supposed to be tough but it felt inhumane,’ one player told The Sun

‘At one point I could see they were bringing on a black coffin with a pink ribbon just like in the original show. I feel like they prioritised getting a good shot over helping us.’ 

Another player claimed people were ‘dropping like flies’ due to the cold weather.

Elsewhere two players are said to have ruined their chances before the games even began, after bed-hopping at the Tower Hotel in London where contestants stayed in for two days before filming in Bedford commenced.
