Traitors: Merrill Williams hopes to launch a clothing line for dwarfs

The Traitors winner Meryl Williams speaks of her pride in becoming the first person with dwarfism to win a UK reality competition as she talks about hopes of launching a clothing line for juniors.

Traitors star Meryl Williams spoke of her excitement at becoming the first person with dwarfism to win a reality competition in the UK after winning the show on Thursday.

Call center agent Meryl, 25, won the £101,050 prize with Aaron Evans and Hannah Beczkowski but says she has achieved much more by appearing in the series than by a bolstered bank account.

She told MailOnline and other media on Friday: ‘I’m really, really proud to be the first person with a dwarfism condition to win the reality competition on the game show. It never happened in the UK and it never happened in America.

Ellie Simmonds was obviously strictly a dancer but no one ever won my case.

“The whole reason I’m on this show is so people can educate themselves and watch it and see that I’ve done exactly the same thing as everybody else and then realize that I’m exactly the same.”

Merrill said she hopes to change people’s opinions of people with dwarfism by taking part in a high-profile show like Traitors.

She continued, “There are some fixed stereotypes and a lot of fun with my case with pantomime, for example, so I wanted people to see me doing normal things, competing on a level playing field with everyone else and not having any advantages or disadvantages.” .

“That’s all I wanted for people to be able to watch and I just wanted to make my family proud too.”

While she currently shops at supermarket chains, she is unable to wear clothes unless they are altered to fit.

On whether she would launch her own company, she said, “I say yes to everything, absolutely!

I still shop at midsize stores like Zara. I guess I keep them in business!

‘My grandmother is changing my clothes. My grandmother is a trained seamstress, so she’ll take my long-legged pants, and she’ll cut and hem the legs so they look just like everyone else’s.

Then simple things like cargo, you know how thigh high pockets are supposed to be? You’ll take the pockets and move them up. So she is literally my best friend!

I’m a size 8-10 so I shop in stores like everyone else, but I guess it’s not the case for everyone who has my condition because not everyone has a gran who works on sewing.

“The shoes too because I’m one size and it’s a nightmare to find a shoe.”

It was a close call for the three winners after being nearly caught by Wilfred Webster before being caught as he and fellow traitor Kieran Tompsett turned on each other.

What is war?

Restricted growth, sometimes known as dwarfism, is a condition characterized by short stature.

There are two main types of restricted growth:

  • Proportionate short stature (PSS) – a general lack of growth, in which the length of the trunk and limbs is proportionate
  • Disproportionately short stature (DSS) – where the limbs are shorter or disproportionate to other parts of the body

In addition to short stature, some people with restricted growth have other physical problems, such as bowed legs or an unusually curved spine.

However, most people do not have any other serious problems. They can often lead a relatively normal life and have an average life expectancy.
