The 39-year-old singer would love to be involved in the upcoming third series of the Channel 4 reality show - which sees contestants communicate over a social media platform with the choice of using their real identity or fake profile - and believes she would be the perfect contestant.

Writing in her new! magazine column, she said: "I'm thrilled 'The Circle' is coming back to Channel 4 next year for another series, as well as a celeb edition. If they want me to take part, I'll be there.

"The whole basis of the show is people pretending to be someone else and I'd be good at that. Let's face it, I've already been everyone under the sun, pop star, jungle queen, the divorcee, the drug addict, the sober one and the mother - I've definitely got what it takes."

Host Emma Willis is returning for the new series, along with narrator Sophie Willan, and fans can expect a week-long celebrity series to raise funds for Stand Up To Cancer, with the normal series to air afterwards.

Emma said: "'The Circle' is just brilliant, unmissable television. I loved every minute of being a part of it and I'm delighted to be returning to it for another series where I'll be right at the centre of all the mischief and drama!"

On the celeb edition, she added that she "can't wait to see who'll be in the line-up and whether they'll play as themselves or as another celebrity - it's going to be incredible".

With the Covid-19 pandemic restrictions, the programme will be pre-recorded later this year, without a studio audience for the live element.

A source claimed in March: "Producers have already started putting out the feelers to some celeb names to see if they'll be free for filming.

"They want to get a mixture of showbiz names, sports stars and older celebs so they can draw in a wider audience. At the moment it's mostly watched by youngsters, so they would like to broaden that fan base."

Last year's series saw former 'This Morning' host Richard Madeley take part as 27-year-old Judy before being blocked by the other players.

He later revealed his true identity in a video clip shocking the contestant who had their doubts about Judy.
