Heat (UK) - - Deap Heat -

Just when you think they can’t pos­si­bly think of a new re­al­ity show, along one comes. Pre­sented by Alice Levine and Maya Jama, and stripped across the week, play­ers can only com­mu­ni­cate through a spe­cially-de­signed voice­ac­ti­vated so­cial me­dia plat­form called The Cir­cle. An on­line pop­u­lar­ity con­test with a prize of up to £50K, play­ers must cre­ate a brand-new so­cial me­dia pro­file for them­selves, choos­ing which tasty morsels of info to re­veal, bear­ing in mind that one wrong move could mean they’re judged un­fa­vor­ably. Over the course of the game, dur­ing which they’ll get to chat, com­pete against each other in men­tal and phys­i­cal tasks, flirt, and pos­si­bly fall in love, they’ll rate each other – with the least pop­u­lar play­ers be­ing blocked from the game and hav­ing their true iden­tity re­vealed. Good fun or the hellish­ness of on­line dat­ing taken to the next level? You de­cide. ★★★★ Kay Ribeiro
