Anyone can be anyone in The Circle, but when the aim of the game is to gain popularity, some are not who they seem. 

The reality series looks at the highs and lows of social media, as eight contestants try to win over their fellow competitors and convince them they are who they say there are for a chance to win the prize of £100,000.

The Circle sees contestants live in separate flats in the same building, but their only way to communicate with each other is through a social media platform called The Circle.

Who will gain from the BBC's UKTV purchase?

Contestants on UKTV channel Dave’s hit show Taskmaster have to think laterally and creatively as a series of challenges are thrown at them. Much like the BBC had to in 2017 when Discovery’s acquisition of UKTV’s co-owner Scripps triggered a clause that gave BBC Studios the option to buy out Discovery. The problem was that it lacked the cash to do so.

The first series saw Willis train for three months as a Maternity Care Assistant (MCA) by working ten-hour shifts, cleaning beds and taking patients' blood pressure.

No longer a trainee, the presenter will return to the Princess Alexandra Hospital for the project’s second season, ready to help the NHS staff there bring new life into the world.

She will also visit some of the parents and babies she met during training for a one-off special, Emma Willis: Meet the Babies, and look back at last year’s births.
