Blue star Duncan James is trying his luck on popularity reality show The Celebrity Circle – and will be shunning a catfish lifestyle to play as himself.
The 42-year-old will be up against stars including Baga Chipz, Denise Van Outen and Charlotte Crosby to be crowned the most popular player.
But it’s all in good fun, and for a good cause, with the show aiming to raise money for Stand Up To Cancer.
Living on his own though for two weeks will come with his own challenges, not least of which the special people in his life in the outside world who he was cut from.
So who is his boyfriend and daughter? Here’s what you need to know…
Who is Duncan James dating?
Duncan has been in a long-term relationship with Rodrigo Reis since 2019.
They met shortly after Duncan appeared on First Dates Hotel looking for love.
Initially keeping their romance private, they’ve since been open about their relationship and even appeared on this year’s Valentine’s Day special of Loose Women together.
Because Rodrigo grew up in Brazil, he initially didn’t know that Duncan was famous or in a boyband.
Speaking to OK! he said: ‘Rodrigo is such a lovely boy. He’s just so smiley, happy, with lovely energy. He’s met my daughter and they really get on, so it’s just fantastic.
‘I didn’t identify as gay for many years because of my issues with coming out, but finally I’m happy in my skin and this guy makes me proud to be gay.’
How old is Duncan James’s daughter?
Duncan James has one daughter with previous girlfriend Claire Grainger.
Tianie-Finn James, who was born in 2005, and is now 16 years old.
Lockdown has meant that he’s been able to spend more time with her, and in a recent interview with OK! he explained that typically she is in boarding school.
The Celebrity Circle starts tonight at 9.15pm on Channel 4.
