The Circle announces second catfish for celebrity series

The Circle has revealed a second catfish taking part in the upcoming celebrity edition of the reality show, and they’re taking on the alias of a real life friend.

Channel 4 is set to air a week-long celebrity edition of the game show in aid of Stand Up To Cancer in March, with a host of famous faces moving into that apartment block of anonymity in order to make virtual connections with other celebs – some of whom are not who they say they are.

After the recent revelation that Loose Women co-stars Kaye Adams and Nadia Sawalha will be catfishing as The Only Way Is Essex diva Gemma Collins on the show, Channel 4 has now announced that RuPaul’s Drag Race UK star Baga Chipz will be playing the game as her friend Kim Woodburn, of How Clean Is Your House? and Celebrity Big Brother fame.

“I want to go in there and try and be the Kim I know,” Baga said. “Obviously, I’ll be saying, ‘Hey, be cleaning up after yourselves’ and ‘Oh, you’re a lovely… What a good-looking fellow you are. If I were 20 years younger’ and all that.

“But I’m going to also be like, ‘Yeah, well, people know me from Big Brother, but they were actually rat bags, and I want to show the real me.'”

As for her game plan on the show, Baga revealed that she will “just befriend people”.

“I’m going to flirt with the lads and I’m going to be a mother to the girls!” she revealed.

Baga, Kaye and Nadia aren’t the only celebs who are going to be hiding their true identities on the show either, with more catfishes set to be announced this week. Watch this space…

Among the list of suspects are Strictly Come Dancing‘s Saffron Barker, Dancing on Ice star Lady Leshurr, former Hollyoaks actor Duncan James and BBC Radio 1 DJs Rickie Haywood-Williams and Melvin Odoom, who will be playing together as a pair.

Also taking part in the show are Made in Chelsea‘s Sam Thompson and TOWIE‘s Pete Wicks – who will be playing as a pair – as well as former EastEnders actress Denise van Outen and Geordie Shore‘s Charlotte Crosby.
