What is the Celebrity Circle?

The Circle sees each contestant move into a flat of their own, having not ever met the people they’re playing against.

Instead, the contestants – in this case, celebrities – communicate via a specially designed social media platform, made for the series only.

Each person can choose to be themselves or create a completely false identity, tricking their co-stars into believing they’re genuine.

The only chance to see another contestant is when they’re voted out of the game.

At the end of the series the most popular player, the one with the most likes, has the chance to win the £100k prize.
