The Circle continued on Wednesday night as influencers Andy and Manrika made a blocking decision that led to a heated meeting and confrontation.
Wednesday’s episode picked up with Andy and Manrika deciding who to block. Manrika was determined to get Gemma aka James blocked and would not leave the hangout until it was done. In the end, ‘Gemma’ was blocked and eliminated from the game.
Before leaving, James decided to go meet Manrika and it made for one awkward meeting. Manrika was shocked to say the least when James entered her flat.
“I f**king knew it!,” she exclaimed. “Tell me you’re a nurse.”
James admitted he was not a nurse but things got heated when Manrika confessed to drawing the snake portrait of ‘Gemma’ in the game and then denied it. James became angry and told her she should have owned it instead of “being a coward”. Manrika shot back and said it’s a game and you’ve got to lie.
Manrika said she’s being herself and everything she has done in The Circle has been her, which led James to shoot back “Yeah, you’re a real nice, girl” before leaving.
When James’s video messaged played, the entire group was shocked. In a group chat, Femi said “I did not expect to see a Gladiator this morning”. That led to Syed aka Hashu becoming suspicious of Femi and Dorothy aka Scott.
The Circle continues Thursday at 10 PM on Channel 4 and All 4.
