Irish influencer Paddy Smyth has just won popular Channel 4 series The Circle.

After proving to be the most popular in the final ratings, the disabled activist has been crowned the winner of this year’s series – scooping a massive £70,000 cash prize.

The show, which first aired last year, bills itself as a game based around social media, with the concept that “anyone can be anyone in The Circle”.

Contestants live in the same building, but are never allowed to meet, and they communicate solely using their profiles on a specially-designed app – giving them the ability to portray themselves in any way they choose.

Basically, the aim of the game is to be crowned the most popular without ever meeting the other people involved – and Paddy ended up being the winning player.

During his time on the show, the 31-year-old, who was born with cerebral palsy in his legs, won over viewers as he candidly opened up about living with a disability.
