The first scandal of The Celebrity Circle arrived just minutes into the show this evening, with YouTuber Saffron Barker lying about her relationship status.
The episode saw a group of celebrities move into the most famous apartment block in the UK for the first time ever, and the 20-year-old arrived ready to mix things up.
Saffron, who previously starred on Strictly Come Dancing, lied about being in a relationship in order to improve her chances in the competition.
While she has a partner on the outside, who she often shares pictures with on social media, Saffron decided to change her status to stand the best chance of winning.
‘I’m really happy in my relationship, but if flirting has to be done, it has to be done,’ Saffron said when asked to put her status in the system.
‘Ok, I think I’m going to put my relationship status as single,’ she said.
Will her tactic pay off? Only time will tell.
The first episode of Celebrity Circle for Stand Up To Cancer saw a group of celebrities move into the most famous apartment block in the UK for the first time ever.
Emma Willis returned as host, with comedian Sophie Willan resumed her role as the unmistakable voiceover of each episode.
Saffron is joined by the likes of Denise Van Outen, Sam Thompson and Pete Wicks on the new series. While some celebrities are playing as themselves, others are catfishing as another celebrity identity altogether, hoping to convince the other players that they are the real deal.
The Circle continues tomorrow at 9pm on Channel 4.
