ALERT! The Circle is back.
Channel 4 has finally announced The Celebrity Circle will launch on Tuesday 9 March and will run for a week prior to the start of the new series. The celebrity edition of the show is part of the Stand Up To Cancer campaign as the famous faces raise money for charity.
Over the past few days, show bosses have confirmed the celebrities playing the game as catfishes and Wednesday morning three more are playing the game as someone else. This means six of the nine celebrities will be playing the game under a catfish persona.
The broadcaster revealed Rickie Haywood-Williams and Melvin Odoom will be pairing up to play as The Voice UK coach Will.i.am, Sam Thompson and Pete Wicks will be playing as Rachel Riley, while Charlotte Crosby will join the game as a new player, catfishing as Peter Andre.
Only Duncan James, Saffron Barker, and Denise van Outen will be playing the game as themselves.
Emma Willis returns as the host while comedian Sophie Willan continues in her role as narrator for each episode.
Following the celebrity edition, an all-new third series of The Circle will launch the following week with civilians moving into the apartments.
Both the celebrity and civilian editions of the show were filmed in the U.K. last autumn.
