The final of the Circle 2021 is airing tonight, with series three of the Channel 4 competition coming to an end.
After weeks of game-playing, yelling at TV screens and catty anonymous games, Manrika Khaira, Syed (Hasuh Mohammed) and co will be battling out for the prize money.
Side note: We already miss those ‘ALERT’ screams.
Thursday’s episode ended on the last ever cliffhanger, with ‘super secret influencer’ Andy Smith getting ready to block another player in person.
But, with suspicions raising over some players, and relationships fracturing between others, all eyes will be on the ‘Circle fam’ and their antics.
Who is in the final of The Circle 2021?

Andy and Manrika Khaira are set to face off against secret catfish Syed (Hashu Mohammed), Felix (Natalya Platonova), Alice (Shabaz Ali) and Father Tom (Joey Alabi and Pippa Walker) in tonight’s final.
It is sure to be a very tense night as Manrika is due to come face-to-face with ‘Circle boyfriend’ ‘Felix’ for the first time, totally unaware that the paratrooper is actually catfish Natalya.
Manrika isn’t the only member of the ‘Circle fam’ that Natalya should be worried about, as protective ‘uncle Syed’ might also have a few things to say…
We can expect a showdown reminiscent of Alex and Dan from series one, but much, much worse…
Who will win The Circle and what’s the prize money?
While the other series of The Circle have always aired live, these episodes have been pre-recorded due to the coronavirus pandemic, meaning the winner has already been decided.
Of course, this has been kept firmly under wraps by show bosses, but that hasn’t stopped us analysing every single morsel of the contestants’ social media pages to try and guess just who took home the whopping £100,000 prize money.

As it stands, Mohammed Hashu is currently favourite to win the show, after catfishing his way into our hearts as ‘uncle Syed’.
- Hashu Mohammed – 7/4
- Andy Smith – 3/1
- Manrika Khaira – 4/1
- Natalya Platonova – 11/2
- Joey Alabi – 7/1
- Pippa Walker – 7/1
- Shabaz Ali – 12/1
Ladbrokes spokesman Alex Apati: ‘Brits can’t get enough of The Circle and with the series finale upon us, it’ll take something special to stop Hashu from going all the way if the latest odds are anything to go by.’
When was The Circle filmed?
The Circle series three was filmed at a block of flats in Salford, Greater Manchester, in September 2020.
This means the winner has been enjoying their prize money for more than six months now.
Coronavirus restrictions were taken into consideration during the shoot, with no live shows and no studio audience – and presenter Emma Willis popping up on pre-recorded videos.
The Circle finale airs tonight, at 10pm, on Channel 4.
