The charity spin-off of the hit show will air early next year and will include the likes of Geordie Shore’s Charlotte Crosby and TV star Denise Van Outen.

Joining them will be Blue singer Duncan James, former Strictly Come Dancing contestant Saffron Barker, RuPaul's Drag Race UK runner-up Baga Chipz and Lady Leshurr.

Completing the line-up are three separate double acts who will work under one profile – radio DJs Rickie Haywood-Williams and Melvin Odoom, Loose Women friends Kaye Adams and Nadia Sawalha and Celebs Go Dating stars Sam Thompson and Pete Wicks.

Just like in the usual series, the celebrities will anonymously move into the apartment block and chat to the other star contestants using only social media platform ‘The Circle’.

But whether they choose to come clean about who they are, or instead opt for a celebrity catfish, is entirely up to them.

Viewers will be able to see all the addictive drama play out when the show, filmed in aid of charity Stand Up To Cancer, airs over six episodes early next year.

Once again, the Channel 4 series will be hosted by Emma Willis, who took over the hosting reins from Maya Jama and Alice Levine.

Previously speaking about why she loves the show so much, Emma said: “I know there’s this kind suggestion it is just a replacement for Big Brother for me but I view it quite differently.”

“The thing with Big Brother is that for me, I always viewed it with the purist mentality, it was a social experiment. That is always how I watched Big Brother. But this, I very much watch it as a game,” she added.

“I hated Big Brother being compared to a game but this is clearly a game with the interaction of people, how they’ll react in certain scenarios and then seeing who is going to be themselves and who is going to play it to try and be the most popular and win.”

Emma also said that her favourite part is when the game playing really gets going.

She explained: “One of my favourite parts of the show is when a player has been blocked, meaning they’re not very popular.”

“They can get to go knock on the door of one other person that’s in the circle to find out if it’s really them or not.”
