The Circle UK is coming back in early 2021 with a celebrity special in aid of Stand Up To Cancer. Emma Willis returns as host alongside narrator Sophie Willan for what promises to be another season of alerts, ratings, and catfishing, this time with a celebrity twist.
Channel 4 confirmed the line-up of famous faces earlier today (which you can read in full below). The cast includes a mix of TV personalities, reality stars, radio DJs, and music performers. According to the press release, “some of the celebs [will be] playing as themselves and others [will be] taking on a celebrity catfish persona.” Some of the celebs will also be playing in pairs.
