Channel 4 has confirmed that The Circle has been renewed for a third series, also announcing that there will be a celebrity special of the popular game show.

Due to air next year, The Circle will kick off with a week-long celebrity edition in aid of Stand Up To Cancer, shortly followed by series three of the show. Emma Willis will return as host while comedian Sophie Willan will resume voiceover duties.

A number of changes will bee implemented going forward so to ensure that filming is in line with Covid-19 guidelines, with it being reported that the show will be pre-recorded and there will be no studio audiences or live shows.

Announcing the news on Instagram, Channel 4 confirmed that casting is now open and the show is already on the lookout for players.

For anyone who has not seen the show before, it bills itself as a social-media based social experiment with the idea being that 'anyone can be anyone in The Circle'. Contestants move into the same apartment building where they live for the duration of filming, but they're never allowed to meet - communicating solely through their profiles on a specially-designed app, players can portray themselves however they choose to.
