Lady Leshurr pays tearful tribute to late sister after winning The Celebrity Circle as a catfish
Lady Leshurr won The Celebrity Circle for Stand Up To Cancer on Monday night (15 March), paying an emotional tribute to her late sister.
The “Queen’s Speech” rapper was crowned the winner of the first celebrity version of the show, which lasted just six episodes and saw famous contestants competing to catfish each other through a social media platform called The Circle.
Some played as themselves, such as Denise Van Outen and runner-up Saffron Barker. But Lady Leshurr out-catfished them all with her impersonation of rapper Big Narstie.
When presenter Emma Willis announced her as the winner, Lady Leshurr became tearful.

She said as the other contestants cheered: “I feel like such an idiot crying. I did this because I lost my sister to breast cancer and this means everything to me, honestly.”
Reality stars Pete Wicks and Sam Thompson, who played as Rachel Riley, shared joint second place with van Outen. Radio presenters Melvin Odoom and Rickie Haywood-Williams came in at fifth place, after catfishing the other contestants as will.i.am.
Lady Leshurr opened up about her pansexuality earlier this year
While competing on Dancing on Ice earlier this year, Lady Leshurr opened up about her pansexuality when asked who her dream skating partner would be.
She answered that she would love to skate with both Cara Delevingne and Denise van Outen, and added: “I’ve watched Denise van Outen as I was growing up and I’ve always thought she was beautiful. She’s like the girl-next-door, with the blonde hair and blue eyes… I’d never draw the line at anyone.
“I’m open to everything and I’m spontaneous. That’s why I’m pansexual — because I love experimenting. And if I connect with somebody and they happen to be, say, in their 40s, I wouldn’t mind that. I’m only in my 30s.”
