For the first time ever, a group of celebrities move into the famous apartment block.

While some of the stars are playing as themselves in the game, others are catfishing as other celebrities.

From there, they will have to convince their co-stars they are the real deal.

So, who is taking part?

Once in the apartment, they will go on to create their social media profiles – their only means of communication throughout the show.

The contestants usually have no contact with the outside world, unless for medical reasons.

When does it start?

Fans of the show won’t have long to wait long for the upcoming series, which begins on Tuesday 9 March on Channel 4.

Speaking about the show, Kaye and Nadia previously revealed they were filmed the series in autumn last year.

We are very very nervous and think we have made complete fools of ourselves

On Loose Women, Nadia said: “You might be wondering why we’re so nervous about it, but I think it’s because we were so utterly relaxed we were our true true selves!”

Furthermore, Nadia explained: “We actually shot it last September and we had to keep it a secret and we are catfishers and we are pretending to be the GC.”

The Celebrity Circle starts Tuesday 9 March on Channel 4.
