Until now, we’d been feeling fairly excited about the series two of The Circle kicking off tonight.
Richard Madeley Joins The Circle And We Already Cant Wait To See How He Gets On
It had already been revealed that Channel 4 was planning to amp things up for the show’s second run, bringing in a new host in Emma Willis and adding a weekly live episode to the proceedings to shake things up.
Then we met the contestants and became even more intrigued, thanks to the bigger mix of characters we’d be introduced to when the second series got underway.
But the show’s first twist of the new series has now been confirmed, and our excitement levels are officially at 100. And it’s all thanks to two words: Richard Madeley.⭐ CELEBRITY CATFISH ALERT! Richard Madeley is joining the game and YOU can decide who he'll play during tonight's live launch. 9:15pm | @Channel4 | #TheCirclepic.twitter.com/w5BnjNuR4u— The Circle (@C4TheCircle) September 24, 2019Yes, Channel 4 has announced that Richard Madeley – the man of a thousand memes, awkward moments and brilliant lines (even if they are mostly unintentional) – is to join The Circle as a late addition, but his fellow contestants won’t know it’s him that they’re talking to.
Instead, viewers will vote for one of several personas that Richard will have to maintain during his time on the show, while communicating with his fellow players via the show’s purpose-built social media platform.“I think what I’m going to have to try and avoid doing is not attempt to be cool or clever, or as we used to say, a very old-fashioned phrase, a wise guy,” he said.
“I think I’ve just got to take it as it comes, basically be quite kind while I’m talking to people and stay away from difficult topics that can easily be misinterpreted.”
The Circle sees contestants living in isolation while communicating with fellow players either as themselves or as a persona they’ve created in a bid to become the most popular and win £100,000.It had already been revealed that Zoe Ball’s 18-year-old son Woody would be joining the cast, playing as himself but not telling his fellow contestants about his famous parents.
Also taking part in the new series are a 31-year-old lesbian who wants to see how differently she’s treated if she tells her fellow contestants she’s younger and straight, a young man pretending to be a single mother and a mum playing as her 25-year-old son.
The Circle launches on Tuesday 24 September on Channel 4.READ MORE... Richard And Judy Are Returning To Host This Morning After 18 Years Richard Madeley Goes Full Alan Partridge As He Swears Twice While Hosting Good Morning Britain Richard Madeley Interviewing A Naked Brexit Protester Was As 'Richard Madeley' As You'd Expect These truly are the best of the worst... c.20thC.Fox/Everett/Rex/Shutterstock/OWN/Channel 4/Ray Tang/Rex/Shutterstock'There's Something About Miriam' Back in 2003, 'There's Something About Miriam' hit the airwaves. A dating show with a difference, the titular Miriam dated six different men over a period of time before revealing to them all that she was transgender.After filming ended, the six men who took part in the show filed a lawsuit against producers, accusing them of conspiracy to commit sexual assault, defamation, breach of contract and psychological and emotional damage.It was also blasted by critics, with some accusing the Sky One show of reinforcing stereotypes about trans people, and exploiting an important issue. 'I Wanna Marry Harry' The premise of this completely ridiculous show was that a group of American women were flown to the UK, where they competed for the affections of a man they were led to believe was Prince Harry, but was actually a look-a-like.Eventual winner Kimberly Birch later hit out at the show, claiming the girls all knew that 'Prince Harry' was an imposter, but were manipulated into thinking they were just being paranoid by producers, who urged doubters to speak to a fake therapist for reassurance. 'Playing It Straight' OTT and mildly offensive, 'Playing It Straight' saw one woman having to whittle down a group of 12 single men, with the unfortunate obstacle that six of them are hiding the fact that they're gay.The E4 show was eventually won by former Mr Gay UK Ben Harris, who opted to split the prize money with the show's leading lady, Zoe. 'Being Bobby Brown' 'Being Bobby Brown' marked Whitney Houston's move from Grammy-winning voice of a generation to the side-kick in a Bravo reality show, the highlight of which was this infamous scene. 'Shattered' A reality show where contestants are truly pushed to their limits, the participants in 'Shattered' were required to stay awake for a full week in a bid to win £100,000.What Channel 4 hadn't banked on, though, was quite how dull this would be for viewers. 'Dapper Laughs: On The Pull' More than one person at ITV2 gave this programme the thumbs up. In fact, a string of people thought this was a good idea. Something to think about. 'CelebAir' When you start running out of skills celebrities can learn as part of a TV show, you have to think outside the box, and that's exactly what the producers of 'CelebAir' did when they came up with a show that would see a host of C-listers training to become cabin crew members. 'Flockstars' No, but seriously. Who gave the green-light to a show where Fazer from N-Dubz, Tony Blackburn and Brendan Cole herd up a load of sheep?Of course, the involvement of Leslie Joseph meant we still watched every episode... 'Lindsay' "Cut the bullshit""'K"One of the finest exchanges in reality TV history.What was so unbelievable about 'Lindsay' wasn't that the former wild child got her own reality show (forgive us, docuseries), but just how uneventful it was. 'Cheaters' A show where people catch their philandering partners in the act... with an entire camera crew behind them, and Clark James Gable quizzing them about how they feel.Running mascara and a few torn-out hair extensions later, and hey presto, you've got yourself a reality show. 'Totally Jodie Marsh' This MTV reality series saw Jodie Marsh choosing a spouse from a group of eligible bachelors, eventually plumping for the ex-boyfriend of her rival, Katie Price (funny, that).In 2015, she admitted she was "ashamed" of the show, describing it as "the worst period of her life". 'Bridalplasty' People love bridal shows, and people love shows about plastic surgery. Put 'em together and what have you got..? 'Peter Andre's Bad Boyfriends Club' A reality show entirely dependent on the premise that Peter Andre is the perfect boyfriend.Sure thing. 'Princess Nikki' E4's attempt to turn post-'Big Brother' Nikki Grahame into the UK's answer to Paris Hilton, with this British spin on 'The Simple Life'. It was actually comic genius, which sadly only ran for one series. 'Temptation Island' What better way to test your relationship than to head to two separate private islands with a load of people you fancy, get plied with alcohol and just let the cameras see what happened?Surprisingly, 'Temptation Island' was a smash the world over, with editions airing in the UK, America, Australia, Italy, Spain, Russia, Romania THE LIST TRULY DOES GO ON.
