In the wake of the news that Big Brother is to end after 18 years, Channel 4 are tonight launching a brand new reality TV series, The Circle and here's a first look at the starting line-up.

Hosted by Alice Levine and Maya Jama, The Circle is a brand new reality show for the social media age. The players will all move into the same building but live in completely separate apartments, just inches away from each other.

They can't see or hear one another so instead, to win the cash prize of up to £50,000, they’ll communicate only using a specially-designed, voice-automated social media platform, called The Circle.
