The Circle 2019: Two new players enter – but only one gets to stay

Two brand new players joined The Circle 2019 in tonight’s latest episode – but only one stayed.


In tonight’s instalment (Friday, October 11), a new twist shocked The Circle.

Fresh from last night’s latest blocking, where Brooke was eliminated, two new players join the game this evening – Jan and Andrea.

They first appeared to the other players as just a Red Egg (Andrea) and a Blue Egg (Jan).

“There are two eggs in The Circle. Each egg is someone hoping to join the game,” revealed The Circle to the current contestants.

They were then told: “You must get to know both eggs and decide which one you want. You must do this without seeing their name, photo, age or gender.”

The current players got to question the eggs before deciding which one stayed. The other was instantly blocked.


Meet the new players


AGE: 58

GAME PLAN: Jan reveals: “I don’t have a game plan, I’m just Jan. I’m honest, genuine and the real deal.”

GAME PLAN: Describing himself as the “typical guy next door”, Andrea is playing as himself.


With six votes to two, the Blue Egg – aka Jan – was voted into The Circle while the Red Egg – aka Andrea – was immediately blocked.


Meanwhile, elsewhere tonight Emma Willis was live in the studio as viewers got another chance to influence the action in a major way in a dramatic live vote.

Plus, Emma was joined by celebrity superfans and this week’s blocked players, and we got all the latest action from The Circle.

Those currently taking part in The Circle are Ella May (playing as herself), Georgina Aurelia Elliott (playing as herself), Tim Wilson (playing as himself) and Woody Cook (playing as himself).

They’re joined by James Doran (playing as single mum Sammie), Paddy Smyth (playing as himself), Busayo Twins (playing as Josh) and Beth Dunlavey & Jack Quirk (playing together as 62-year-old Joyce).
