The Circle UK has confirmed its full cast of players and catfishes for the upcoming celebrity special, as well as officially revealing the premiere date for the much-anticipated series.
As previously reported on Inside Survivor, The Celebrity Circle will kick-off on Tuesday, March 9 at 9:15-10:30 PM, immediately following the Great British Bake Off. The shortened series will conclude the following week.
Over the past few days, The Circle has announced which of its celebrity contestants will be playing as catfishes. These include Loose Women‘s Kaye Adams and Nadia Sawalha posing as TOWIE‘s Gemma Collins, RuPaul’s Drag Race UK contestant Baga Chipz as celeb cleaner Kim Woodburn, reality-stars Sam Thompson and Pete Wicks as Countdown‘s Rachel Riley, and BBC Radio 1 DJs Rickie Haywood-Williams and Melvin Odoom as musician Will.I.Am.
If you thought that was already one too many catfishes, it’s now confirmed that rapper Lady Leshurr will be playing as fellow rapper Big Narstie, while Geordie Shore‘s Charlotte Crosby will take on the role of singer Peter Andre.
The only celebrities playing as themselves are actress Denise Van Outen, YouTube star Saffron Barker, and former Blue singer Duncan James.
A third civilian series is expected to begin soon after the conclusion to The Celebrity Circle.
