The Circle is entering its final week of the series with the £100,000 cash prize in The Players’ reach. Sunday night’s episode saw two players get blocked but a shocking twist gave them a second life.
The Players rated each other and as a result Felix (aka Natalya) and Dorothy (aka Scott) were chosen as influencers. When they arrived at The Hangout, they received a video message from host Emma Willis, who told them they were being offered the opportunity to ‘get ahead in the game’ by knocking out the other influencer.
After thinking it over, both Felix and Dorothy decided to not block each other. Another ALERT! saw The Circle tell Felix and Dorothy they must block two players and cannot discuss it with one another. Felix decided to block Pippa while Dorothy opted to eliminate Femi (aka Joey).
However, neither left the game.
The Circle gave Pippa and Joey a second chance and offered them the chance to continue on in the game as Tom, a priest. If they succeed and win the game, they will split the £100,000 cash prize between them.
The news was not what Manrika wanted to hear as her #TripleThreat alliance was shut down after just one episode. It remains to be seen if “Tom” will form an alliance with Manrika or decide to take an alternate route in the final week.
The Circle continues Monday night at 10 PM on Channel 4 and All 4.
