Celebs for Channel 4’s Stand Up To Cancer special of The Circle confirmed

Written by on 15th December 2020

A cast of famous faces will be competing in a week-long celebrity edition of The Circle in aid of Stand Up To Cancer in 2021.

The Circle will be back for a double helping of gameplay in 2021 as the reality competition series returns for an all-celeb series to raise funds for Stand Up to Cancer plus the third outing of the main series on Channel 4.

Celebrity Circle players (l-r) Baga Chipz, Pete Wicks, Sam Thompson, Duncan James, Kaye Adams, Nadia Sawalha, Denise van Outen, Rickie Haywood-Williams, Melvin Odoom, Saffron Barker, Lady Leshurr, Charlotte Crosby

The showbiz names moving in to the most talked about apartment block in Britain to take on the game where anyone can be anyone are:

  • Baga Chipz
  • Charlotte Crosby
  • Denise van Outen
  • Duncan James
  • Lady Leshurr
  • Saffron Barker

And playing the game as double acts controlling one profile are:

  • Kaye Adams and Nadia Sawalha
  • Rickie Haywood-Williams and Melvin Odoom
  • Sam Thompson and Pete Wicks

With some of the celebs playing as themselves and others taking on a celebrity catfish persona, this edition of the game will see suspicions heightened and gameplaying galore as the celebs compete for the title of most popular player.

The six-part celebrity series will air early next year ahead of Series 3 of The Circle, which will once again see a batch of players compete in the game of popularity for a potential £100k prize. Emma Willis returns as host, delivering the players some surprise alerts along the way, and comedian Sophie Willan resumes her role as the unmistakable voiceover of each episode.

The series is in aid of Stand Up To Cancer, a joint national fundraising campaign from Cancer Research UK and Channel 4 that brings the UK together to speed up progress in life-saving research.

Celebrity Circle for Stand Up To Cancer and The Circle Series 3 were recorded earlier this year in line with Covid-19 filming guidelines.
