With The Circle set to return next month to our screens, Channel 4 announced the second celebrity catfish on Sunday and this one will be sure to have the celebs on their best behaviour.
The broadcaster revealed RuPaul’s Drag Race UK’s Baga Chipz will be trying to fool the other famous faces by playing the game as Kim Woodburn. The news comes after it was revealed Loose Women‘s Kaye Adams and Nadia Sawalha will be playing together as TOWIE‘s Gemma Collins.
“I want to go in there and try and be the Kim I know,” Chipz said. Obviously I’ll be saying, ‘Hey, be cleaning up after yourselves’ and, ‘Oh, you’re a lovely… what a good-looking fellow you are. If I were 20 years younger’ and all that.”
“But I’m going to also be like, ‘Yeah, well, people know me from Big Brother but they were actually rat bags and I want to show the real me and just befriend people’. I’m going to flirt with the lads and be a mother to the girls.”
Woodburn and Chipz are friends in real life. Woodburn became a household name in 2000 in her role on C4’s How Clean Is Your House?, but more recently is known for her controversial stint on Channel 5’s Celebrity Big Brother in 2015.
The upcoming celebrity series as well as the civilian series were pre-recorded last September due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Other celebrities appearing are Blue singer Duncan James, Rapper Lady Leshurr, Reality stars Sam Thompson and Pete Wicks, YouTuber Saffron Barker, Actress, singer and dancer Denise van Outen, Reality star Charlotte Crosby, Loose Women stars Nadia Sawalha and Kaye Adams and Radio DJs Rickie Haywood-Williams and Melvin Odoom.
The Celebrity Circle begins next month on Channel 4.
