ALERT! Channel 4 has renewed The Circle for a third series and this time it will be a celebrity edition.
The Sun is reporting that the broadcaster will see a star-studded lineup play the game, which features contestants communicating only via social media app known as ‘The Circle’ using real or fake aka catfish identities. Emma Willis will return as host.
“Producers have already started putting out the feelers to some celeb names to see if they’ll be free for filming,” a source told the tabloid.
The winner of the £100,000 prize will donate the cash to charity. The news comes after fans enjoyed last year’s series two twist that saw Richard Madeley make a brief stay in the apartments and Zoe Ball’s son was also a regular contestant.
“They want to get a mixture of showbiz names, sports stars and older celebs so they can draw in a wider audience,” the source added. “At the moment it’s mostly watched by youngsters, so they would like to broaden that fanbase.”
The Circle returns to Channel 4 this summer.
