The Celebrity Circle has confirmed that The Only Way Is Essex‘s Pete Wicks and Made in Chelsea star Sam Thompson will be teaming up to catfish their fellow contestants.

During tonight’s instalment of Pete & Sam’s Reality News (February 22), the twosome announced that they’ll be posing as Countdown icon Rachel Riley throughout their time in the charity competition.

The Channel 4 show will be back with a week-long star-studded edition in March, in aid of Stand Up to Cancer. It’ll see a host of famous faces move into an apartment block in order to make virtual connections with other celebs – some of whom are not who they say they are.

While Sam described his time there as “the best week of [his] life”, Pete appeared to look back on it with the opposite reaction, teasing: “The f**king worst of mine.”

We learnt a lot about each other, Pete poos with the door open,” Sam joked.

Thanks for that, Sam, you’re meant to be telling people why they should be watching the show and I’m sure me having a shit isn’t one of them,” Pete laughed back.

If you haven’t watched The Circle before, some people are themselves and some people are catfish and you have to work out who is who,” Sam explained. “We played Rachel Riley, and as it turns out we actually played better women than we do men.”
