'Proud mama' Zoe Ball wishes son Woody, 18, good luck as he debuts on The Circle

Zoe Ball was one ‘proud mama’ as she wished her son Woody luck ahead of his debut on The Circle.

On Tuesday night a new batch of contestants moved into the same block of flats to try and become the most popular.

The catch is they will never meet the other flatmates, and some people aren’t who they say they are (looking at you, Richard Madeley…).

The 18-year-old, the son of Zoe and DJ Norman Cook aka Fatboy Slim, arrived at the flat that would be his home for the next three weeks.

Before he made his appearance, the BBC Radio 2 host tweeted a message of good luck to her boy.

She said: Good luck to my best boy on his adventure on @C4TheCircle proud mamalady X’.

The show rather ominously replied from their official Twitter: ‘We’ll look after him.’

Woody will be taking part on the series as himself, rather than creating a fake profile to hoodwink the others.

He said: ‘I might tell one person [about my parents] if I really trust them.

‘My whole life a lot of people have already known who I am before I meet them. This is a good chance to see if people actually like me on my own.

‘My parents know I’m doing the show and they are supportive.

‘They have given me a lot to think about from past experiences and advice. They said that what you say on TV is out there forever and you can’t unsay it and that once you share too much you never unshare it.’

At the end of the episode, Sammie and Tim were named as influencers of the group.

Sammie, a single mum, is actually 26-year-old James, who insists that he respects single mothers.

He said: ‘I was raised by a youngsingle mum. I have nothing but respect for her or anybody else in that position, to be honest, single mums give up everything for their children which is why I chose to present as Sammie in The Circle.’

We also saw TV presenter Richard Madeley move in, but his profile is yet to be decided by viewers.

The Circle continues weekdays at 10pm on Channel 4.
