The Circle favourite Tim hasn’t elaborated much about his personal life on the show – but it’s now been discovered that his partner was the victim of a harrowing homophobic tragedy.

Viewers have seen Tim make sporadic mention of his partner throughout the series. He previously revealed on the show that they arrived in the UK just in time for the legalisation of civil partnerships.

But eagle-eyed fans have managed to discover the identity of the 58-year-old’s spouse and discovered a horrible truth about his past.

Warning: The following video contains distressing content.

Necati, who is Turkish, was forced to travel to Crete in 2001. He boarded a boat from Istanbul that was due to travel to Italy, but the vessel was intercepted by Greek coastguards and he was detained along with 100 other migrants and routinely tortured.

In the clip, which was posted in 2017 by the charity Redress, he bravely discusses the harrowing details of being sexually assaulted by Greek officials.

‘My life is like before torture and after torture,’ he said.

‘I can’t describe…the physical effects can be healed but the mental effects..I can’t explain.’

The video reports that the case was brought before the European Court of Human Rights and in January 2012, the Greek government was ordered to pay Necati the equivalent of £44,000.

Tim has previously said in The Circle that the couple met in Greece and moved to the UK just in time to get married in a civil partnership, which was legalised here in 2005.

The couple has been together for 19 years in total and now live in Rugby with their two cats.

Tim has already proven to be one of this year’s most lovable – and watchable – contestants on the second series of The Circle. From his dancing skills to his linguistic abilities, here’s six times he’s proven that he’s just pure joy to watch.

Also, the programme is knee-deep in another solid plot twist, as previously dumped players Jack and Beth reunite together to catfish everyone in the game as a 62 year old woman.

Although don’t speak too soon, it seems that ‘Joyce’ has already been rumbled.

The Circle airs weeknights from 10pm on Channel 4.
