Things then took a real bad turn though when she revealed she was the one that labelled Gemma ‘a snake’ and ‘full of s**t’ in a painting game.
Telling Manrika she’d ‘crossed a line’, James didn’t accept her apology or explanation and told her: ‘You could’ve owned up to it rather than being a coward, so that’s full of s**t yourself.’
‘You seemed genuine, but obviously you’ve pulled the wool over my eyes,’ he added.
But Manrika stood her ground and said that she was playing a game, and that getting Gemma out was part of her game plan.
Counteracting that it meant that she was less genuine than she liked to think she is, the pair’s conversation then turned bitterly frosty.
James eventually walked out, telling her: ‘Grow up, you know what I mean? Nice to meet you anyway.’
‘Everything that I’ve said and thought, I don’t feel bad about,’ Manrika said. ‘Because she’s a catfish. He’s a catfish, whatever.
‘He’s f***ing fit as well, but he’s a p***k.’
The Circle continues weeknights at 10pm on Channel 4.
