The Celebrity Circle has reached an exciting milestone with this series' first-ever Blocking.

Former Hollyoaks actor Duncan James and TV presenter Denise Van Outen are both playing themselves on the Channel 4 reality show, and they were both put at risk.

Tonight's (March 10) episode saw Lady Leshurr, catfishing as Big Narstie, put Denise at risk, and YouTuber Saffron Barker, who viewers were recently surprised to find out that she didn't know who Denise or Duncan were, put Duncan at risk.

Throughout the episode, both Denise and Duncan slid into the DMs of the popular influencers to gain their trust and prove they weren't catfishing as anyone else.

Saffron and 'Big Narstie' then had a chat to talk about who they were going to pick, and it seemed like Denise would be going as 'Big Narstie' wasn't keen on her flirty messages, but ultimately, Duncan James was Blocked.

Before he left for good, Duncan got to visit one other celebrity, which saw the other inhabitants putting on make-up, tidying up and rushing around in case he popped into their flat – but it was Gemma Collins he wanted to see.

He was quite surprised to be greeted by Loose Women's Kaye Adams and Nadia Sawalha, but he said The GC was a question mark – he wasn't sure if she was the real thing or not, and gave them a few insights and tips for the game.

Other contestants include RuPaul's Drag Race UK's Baga Chipz who is catfishing as Kim Woodburn; Made in Chelsea's Sam Thompson and TOWIE's Pete Wicks are playing as Countdown's Rachel Riley; and BBC Radio 1 DJs Rickie Haywood-Williams and Melvin Odoom are posing as The Voice UK coach will.i.am.

Adding to the drama will be Geordie Shore's Charlotte Crosby, who will be joining in from tomorrow playing as Peter Andre.
