Iíd heard the Manrika leak but Iím glad Natalya has won and itís a surprise. It feels like a genuine win, not like Paddy last year which was an anti climax.

If Manrika voted more tactically she probably would have won . Itís a bit weird she didnít vote more tactically as thatís whatís sheís been doing majority of the ratings she shot herself in the foot .

So after everything that has happened in The Circle over the past few weeks in the end Manrika was pipped to the prize by the catfish she was developing feelings for who turned out to be someone else completely different and just to add further salt to the wound Manrika gave Felix the deciding vote. Twitter is going to be jizzing itself at this!


It's a shame Syed didn't win but at least he provided good entertainment and comedy during the series. I really enjoyed this series and will miss this programme, I already can't wait for series 4 to eventually start.

YES NATALYA!!! 😭😭

Legit could not have gone any better with the final 2 - I was so sure that she was going to be 4th so when Hashu/Syed and Andy were revealed as 4th and 3rd respectively I was so shocked as I was sure either of the two were going to win. After that I was certain on Manrika but I am so happy for Natalya, such a warm person who has played a blinder throughout, definitely makes up for the shitshow that was last yearís result. I wish Scott/Dot made it instead of Tom/Pippa/Joey but I still would have been rooting for Natalya anyway.

Myself and my mum are also in firm belief that the whole comforting between her and Manrika suggests that sheíll provide as much money to her as she needs to support her mum. You can just tell that she cares and wants to support the girl who brought her to the win.

Sad that Manrika didn't win. It would.have made up for the fact that Felix wasn't real.

Iím not sure. I think sheíd have had to have rated Tom first for that to happen as I think Andy or Syed would have tied with her as well.

Didnít they say though that if Manrika had not rated Felix 1st she would have won ?

She said that herself but she hardly strikes me as the best mathematician.

What a terrible season. Thank god this is done. Bottom of the list joint with Circle France you go.

I don't know how C4 expects to gain any new fandom with new twists every week. It would be impossible for someone net new to this season to understand what the true format is. Too much interference (ie. Games) from production, Gemma/James - C4 knew exactly what they were doing to us, and they did it anyways.
C4 should cancel the series, have Netflix UK pick it up and go from there. Having a cliffhanger every episode was unnecessary, especially since the majority of the time the result of the build up was very lackluster.

I’m sure the US version also had cliffhangers every single episode as well? It’s become an integral part of the format laugh.gif

It’ll be hard to beat Series 2 for me but perhaps more because it was my first experience of the show (I think? I can’t remember if I watched the first series straight beforehand or straight after!). I adored Tim and Georgina though. I did really enjoy this series overall though, some fantastic characters in there and lots of catfish which is what I perhaps cruelly enjoy. Despite all the talk at the beginning too of catfish catching, I’m glad they dropped that and focused on the actual connections because that should be what the show is about. There’s no point getting rid of someone purely for being a catfish when they would mark you first! As we’ve seen, being a real person doesn’t prevent them from lying as part of the game.

Hashu/Syed was such a breath of fresh air, I adored Natalya and it was so refreshing to see a true and open gameplayer like Manrika on British TV. It was very commendable for Scott to be the first one in the franchise (that I’ve seen) to pull of the elderly catfish after what appeared to be many failed attempts! Also, good to see a geeky reality TV stan have a chance of playing with Vithun laugh.gif

The clones twist was absolutely GENIUS and hilarious. I find it interesting that both Yolanda and Pippa/Joey did better as their forced catfishes laugh.gif

Absolutely loved this series brilliant throughout!! Donít understand why it is on at 10pm though?? I was really rooting for Syed to win though, he was my absolute favourite contestant throughout! However I loved Natayla/Felix too so fair dues. Does anyone know who the actual guy in the profile is? He was soooooo HOT!

I don't understand the love that Manrika is getting. The whole point of this is to either successfully catfish, or to be yourself if you want to. An 'NHS Nurse' trying to raise funds for the NHS is an option that's included in that.

Being disgusting behind someone's back (despite insisting that you're a nice person), acting nice to their face, and trying to turn people against someone like some sort of witch hunt, is horrible. Whether you're playing the game or not, personally attacking someone who may (or may not) be real, isn't cool.



Reading through the comments Iím glad someone finally said this. I didnít dislike Manrika and think she played an excellent game but she was definitely very catty and fake throughout the game. She reminded me of Georgina on Love Island ďIím loyal Georgina is loyalĒ then getting off with one of the other girlĒs fella. While James gets such intense hate for being a catfish of an NHS nurse... I mean he was going to donate the money to the NHS so it makes sense.

I personally thought both were great contestants and made the show brilliant.
