The Celebrity Circle has confirmed its full line-up of regular players and catfishes, in addition to announcing when its week-long series will kick off.

The special instalment of the Channel 4 reality show, which is taking place in aid of Stand Up To Cancer, will begin on Tuesday, March 9.

Much like its original format, only with star-studded contestants this time round, it'll see a host of famous faces move into an apartment block in order to make virtual connections with other celebs. However, some of them are not who they say they are.

YouTuber Saffron Barker, former Hollyoaks actor Duncan James and EastEnders star Denise Van Outen will be playing as themselves, while everyone else will be trying to fool their fellow players.

As previously revealed, RuPaul's Drag Race UK fave Baga Chipz will be catfishing as Kim Woodburn, Loose Women's Kaye Adams and Nadia Sawalha will be pretending to be diva icon Gemma Collins, and Made in Chelsea's Sam Thompson and TOWIE's Pete Wicks will be playing as Countdown's Rachel Riley.

Other deceivers in the competition include Dancing on Ice's Lady Leshurr and Geordie Shore's Charlotte Crosby who will be trying to convince their fellow players that they're Big Narstie and Peter Andre respectively.
