How does The Circle work?

If you aren't familiar with the format of the Channel 4 show, it sees a group of people move into separate apartments in the same building - but they never meet face-to-face.

Instead, they get to know each other on social media app 'The Circle', and they each regularly vote for their favourite player.

The catch, though, is that the players are free to pretend to be someone else - and 'catfish' their fellow contestants.
