The Circle is back for its second season…

The Circle is back on Channel 4 for its second season. The Circle started out as a social experiment for its first season but everyone was hooked to the show so they decided to bring it back again this year.


The show is like Big Brother with a twist, each contestant has their own apartment in a block of flats and none of them have met before. They will never get the opportunity to meet each other until they are blocked from the show. The only way they can communicate to each other via a social media app and they can be themselves or a catfish (pretend to be someone they are not). 

The social media platform is voice activated and contestants can upload photos from before the show, make statuses, check the news and message someone individually or in a group chat. 

The contestants will rank their fellow players from who they like most to who they do not like the most. The player with the most top scores will be placed influencer and will have the power to block players when asked and can be rewarded. 

At the end of the season whoever is the most popular player could win £100,000. 

The Circle is on every weeknight at 10pm.
