Are you worried that there might be somebody else in the show that knows him well? Is that an invitation? Obviously people have to be aware of the pitfalls, and there are trolls, and there are people on there that are catfished. And I was like, "Hey, don't worry, D.

If you think about your favourite radio presenter, they're pretty much the same in real life as they are on air, because it's hard to fake that emotion and that character because it's such an intimate form.

The Circle is back on Channel 4! The latest run of the high-tech game begins with a week-long all-celebrity edition, hosted by Emma Willis and with the voiceover of Sophie Willan. For the first time ever, a group of celebrities move into the most famous apartment block in the UK, all in aid of Stand Up To Cancer. Do you know what? Firstly, when the show first launched, myself and Melvin were just blown away by the concept of it. It was just so of this time, social media and the whole kind of trap that falls around catfishing and things like that. It's just really fascinating. We've always been really interested in doing this reality TV show. We were massive fans of Big Brother, obviously, when that was in its heyday and beyond that and just the psychological element of things as well. Like trying to see if you can be cut away from technology and away from your family, your friends, and work. So it's going to be challenging and fun on so many different levels. So that was a big thing for us. Are you pleased to be doing it with Melvin? Yeah, I think it makes it even more fun and less daunting as well that we're going to be doing it together. So we can lean on each other if need be. I do reckon there will be a few moments where he's going to want to go left, and I'm going to want to go right. So that should be interesting to watch because we are quite different in terms of how we process and think about things. So that's probably why we get on. So if you disagree, how will you decide what to do? If I'm honest, normally if it's something that I feel really strongly about, I'm open to saying I don't tend to back down. Yeah, you could see some arguments. You never know, it could be us just ignoring each other for half an episode, "You stay over there, I'll stay over there! Is there anything about the concept of the show that worries you at all? Yeah, not so much a worry, but the main thing that I just don't want to get wrong is that, obviously we're not going into it as ourselves, so we're representing somebody else and we've spoken to the person that we're representing. You're playing the game as Will. Am, do you have a game plan? I think we have to try and go about it as organically as possible. If you've got too much of a stringent game plan, I think people will find you out quick. I think you have to be able to adapt with the landscape, and someone might come up with something that means that you have to kind of be a certain way, or go down a certain road. So if you're quite stringent in what you're going to do, I think that could go against us. But then again, I don't know. I've seen other people have game plans and it worked really well for them. Are you worried that there might be somebody else in the show that knows him well? That's why I think if we try and be a bit fluid and a bit loose, you can kind of roll with it a bit better. If we go in there, and go "Well, we're going to talk about this and talk about that. And then someone might know him and pick us up on it, and then we're really screwed. So I think, try not to take it to game planning maybe, but obviously we want to win. We're both competitive, so we want to win. But yeah, I think we need to be able be adaptable at the same time. How are you feeling about the fact that you are going to catfish people? We are faking it. After being on the end of catfish on a daily basis on social media, it's quite nice to be on the other side! Not for the general public, but just for your mates and stuff, but then I thought it's a bit of a slippery slope. Once you start catfishing, where do you draw the line? It's a slippery slope, so I've never indulged myself in it, because I thought to myself, "If you're going to do it well, you have to go down quite a dark road kind of thing. And I feel okay about it because we've spoken to Will with it. Do you think you and Melvin will be naughtier because you're impersonating Will?
