Celebrity Circus was a short-lived reality series based on the Portuguese format Circo das Celebridades where it sees seven celebrities perform alongside professional circus entertainers before a panel of judges and a live studio audience. This is not to be confused with the CBS specials of the 80s called Circus of the Stars.
Seven celebrities are trained to perform various circus acts and compete with each other for points from the judges and phone votes from the public on premium rated lines or by online voting via the official website. The acts are interspersed with banter and video from the training sessions and interviews. The two scores are combined, 50% judges vote and 50% phone votes and the celebrity with the lowest score is eliminated.
