The Circle is coming back to our screens very soon, but before the Channel 4 series opens its doors to any regular folk for series 3, celebrities are getting the first go for 2021.

Following on from Richard Madeley's appearance in the 2019 series, next month we are getting an all-celebrity edition of the reality show in aid of Stand Up To Cancer.

The Circle has now revealed the first catfish of the new episodes. The show announced on Friday (February 19) that Loose Women's Kaye Adams and Nadia Sawalha will be playing together as a major diva, taking on the identity of TOWIE's Gemma Collins.

Speaking on Friday's Loose Women, Kaye revealed: "We are going into The Circle for Stand Up To Cancer and we are very nervous!

"I think we may have made complete fools of ourselves. But hey, what's new?"

Nadia added: "We had to keep it all a secret. We actually shot it last September and we are catfishers and we are both pretending to be the GC!"
