Yes, the secret is finally out. Our very own executive director, the social media maestro and all-round top bloke, Andy Smith, will be gracing your TV screens tonight as one of the nine new contestants in The Circle on Channel 4.
The game show sees the group of strangers move into a stylish apartment block in Salford. Once there, they can only communicate via a voice-activated app. They never see each other face-to-face, so each player can choose how they present themselves – choosing to be whoever they want to be (Andy is playing as himself, by the way).
Competing for likes over the new few weeks, they only get to meet another contestant in the flesh if, or when they get ‘blocked’ out of the game.
Season 3 of the Circle kicks off tonight at 9:15pm and is available to stream on All 4.
Best of luck Andy from all the team at NCM… go get them Catfish!
