The Circle is open for new players and season 3 promises to be its most scandalous yet.
Whether they’re playing as themselves or catfishing the other contestants, they have no chance of getting to that £100,000 prize if the others don’t like them.
This year’s stars aren’t afraid to pull at your heartstrings in order to secure their position – with a father/daughter teaming up and a former Gladiator pretending to be an NHS nurse to win some votes.
So, who are this year’s contestants, and just how good are they on social media IRL?
