The Circle contestants, results and WINNER from Channel 4’s new reality show

The Circle finalists and winner

The Circle concluded on Channel 4 tonight – who are the players and what are the latest results and who won?

Here’s all you need to know from the series…

The Circle is a brand new reality show for the social media age, with a £50,000 prize up for grabs.

The Circle’s players all live in the same building but live in completely separate apartments. Living just inches away from each other, they can’t see or hear one another and will never meet their competitors face to face while playing the game.

Instead, to win the cash prize of up to fifty thousand pounds, they’ll communicate only using a specially-designed voice automated social media platform, called – you’ve guessed it – The Circle.

The Circle is voiced by Sophie Willan and hosted by Maya Jama and Alice Levine.

The Circle winner

Monday saw the live final. The remaining players left their apartments and finally came face to face with each other.

It was revealed that the WINNER of The Circle on Channel 4 was Alex from London who had played the game as his girlfriend Kate. Alex took home the £50,000 prize fund.

What’s more, Alex also won the viewer vote in the final making him the people’s champion. As a result, he took home an extra £25,000 for a total of £75,000.

The Circle contestants

The four players left in the game for the final were:

Alex, a 26-year-old from London playing as Kate

Dan, a 28-year-old from London playing as himself

Freddie, a 20-year-old from Essex playing as himself, but ‘playing it straight’

Sian, a 20-year-old from London playing as “plain Jane” version of herself

The Circle results

Every few days, the players rated each other. The most popular players (those with the highest ratings) became “Influencers” and hold all the power. The least liked with the lowest ratings ran the risk of being blocked and booted out of The Circle altogether.
