The Circle spoilers follow.

The latest episode of The Circle series 3 (April 7) wasted no time in dealing with last night's cliffhanger, revealing that it was Dorothy who was blocked by Syed (Hashu) and Manrika.

Of course, Dot was really her grandson Scott, meaning that the players got to see one catfish revealed. But before that, Scott learned that Felix was also a catfish, and the person Manrika thinks is her boyfriend is actually Natalya.

But that wasn't all, as another catfish basically gave themselves anyway in an anonymous game.

In a 'fill in the blanks' round, Father Tom (who is really Femi and Pippa) anonymously said that 'Manrika is a game player for what she did to Gemma', thinking that Tom wouldn't be suspected since he joined after Gemma (James) was blocked.

And while Manrika was fooled, the other players who were in there when Gemma was blocked – Andy and Felix – instantly thought that Pippa and/or Femi had returned to the game, either as Tom or fellow newbie Alice (who is also a catfish, but new player Shabaz. Keeping up?).

Andy and Felix shared their thoughts in a private group chat, and Manrika and Syed decided to band together and have some fun finding out which player was secretly a returnee.

After weeks of the players falling for catfish, viewers were overjoyed to see them barking up the right tree for once.

Andy and Manrika are still oblivious that two of their little #CircleFam are catfish, but it's a start.

The Circle continues tomorrow night (April 8) at 10pm on Channel 4.
