Who is in the cast of The Circle 2021? 

Billy

Playing as: Himself

The 19-year-old sports marketing manager will not be playing any games as he is going to be himself in the show.

However, that doesn’t mean he hasn’t got his eye on the prize of £100,000.

When asked what was his motivation for the show, Billy said: “The prize money! I do also like the game – The Circle is different to everything else, it’s very unique so I thought, why not?”

Jamie and Millie 

Playing as: Penny

Jamie, 57, and Millie, 20, are The Circle’s first-ever father-daughter duo to take on the competition.

They are going to be portraying Penny, a 49-year-old letting agent from London.

Millie said: “It’s just one of the most unique games you can go into.

“With social media nowadays, it’s all about the way you present yourself.

“So to go in and get to know someone, without seeing fully who the person is, is quite refreshing.”

Tally

Playing as: Herself

When Tally, 23, isn’t gearing up to be on a reality show, she works as a doctor’s receptionist.

While she will be playing herself, Tally has joined The Circle as she wants to show who she is in real life rather than her persona on social media.

Tally explained: “I have built this Instagram that doesn’t really represent me as a person.

“I’m kind of embarrassed of my own Instagram. I really want to go on The Circle to strip everything back and be perceived as my normal quirky self rather than these posey, edited pictures.

“I want to see if you are really only accepted if you look a certain way.”

Yolanda

Playing as: Husband Chris 

Yolanda runs her own dating agency so she’s good at reading people but will she be able to read her fellow contestants via the app?

Her motivation for taking part in The Circle is to help her husband who she is pretending to be.

Yolanda said: “I could make Chris’s dream come true and launch a landscaping firm.

“A lot of people feel the world has given up on them and we want to help give people the opportunity to succeed and grow by learning a trade.”

Andy

Playing as: Himself 

Andy, a father-of-two, is a company director and has no plans of tricking anyone during his time on The Circle.

He said: “My motivation is to show that you can win it with a bit of integrity.

“I really want to get a catfish to admit to me that they’re a catfish.

” I don’t know what I would do with that information, but that is my ultimate aim. I’d class that as winning.”

Hashu

Playing as: His Uncle Syed

Hashu, 28, from Birmingham, will be keeping things closer to home.

He will be catfishing his fellow contestants as his Uncle Syed but will they believe him?

Hashu said: “From a young age I loved pranking people. I’ve always been the one in the house that makes everyone else laugh.

“This is the perfect opportunity for me to put my pranking and catfishing abilities to the test and entertain the British public, whilst hopefully getting a cash injection!”

James

Playing as: NHS nurse Gemma

The 47-year-old former Gladiator is going to be trying to pull the wool over everyone’s eyes as nurse Gemma.

The strength coach said: “I’ve always been somebody who’s enjoyed different challenges, I started off bodybuilding and then I went into Gladiators.

“After that I went into acting and competing in strongman. Most of the challenges I’ve done have been quite body-crushing.

“I think The Circle will be an interesting challenge to try and get away with playing somebody else, it uses different muscles to what I’m used to.

“I also really want to take this opportunity to give back to NHS nurses, winning the prize money would give me the chance to show my gratitude for all their hard work.”

Manika

Playing as: Herself

Manrika is a 24-year-old recruitment consultant who is eager to show everyone who she really is.

She said: “I’ve been judged my whole life for the way I live because I come from an Indian background.

“My parents and family are very westernised but it’s the wider society, the way that I live isn’t the expectation of what an Indian girl should be.

“So, I’m going on to show that you can still live your life, have that social media lifestyle and also be a respectable girl.”

Vithun

Playing as: Himself

Vithun, 23, is an accountant and his motivation for joining The Circle is that he wants to make history.

He said: “I have always been a fan of reality TV. I live for drama, chaos and anarchy!

“There has never been an Asian winner of a civilian reality TV show in the UK, I want to try and make history.”

The Circle season three will start on Tuesday, March 16, on Channel 4.
