Another player is blocked from The Circle with just two episodes of the series remaining.

Dorothy, aka Scott, became the latest player to be blocked on tonight's episode of The Circle.

With newcomers Tom (Femi and Pippa) and Alice (Shabaz) immune, influencers Manrika and Syed (Hashu) had to decide which of Andy, Felix (Natalya) and Dorothy would be the next to fall.

Manrika was determined not to see her Circle boyfriend Felix blocked, while Syed refused to let good friend Andy go, meaning that they had no choice but to block 'Nana Dot'.

Before he left, Scott decided to visit Felix in person to reveal that he had been playing the game as his 85-year-old grandmother, and was shocked to walk in on fellow catfish Natalya.

The pair got on famously - and Natalya admitted that she was starting to have some "serious moral issues" over her alter ego Felix's increasing closeness with Manrika.

"Just keep doing what you're doing," he assured her. "You're absolutely smashing it. I know it's a little bit close to the bone with the whole Manrika thing but you've just got to remember, it is a game."

Later, a mis-step by Femi and Pippa in a group game led Felix and the OG three - Andy, Syed and Manrika - to correctly suspect that at least one of the two newcomers was a former player.

As a result the four decided to feign an argument in order to lay a trap for the imposters ahead of the next blocking on Thursday night.

The Circle then announced that the players still left in the game after the next blocking would all be finalists, with one of them guaranteed to win the £100,000 grand prize.

The Circle continues tomorrow at 10pm on Channel 4.
