Zoe Ball and Fatboy Slim warn son Woody, 18, 'to watch what he says on TV' as he joins The Circle series two

They're been successful co-parenting their two children after splitting in September 2016 after 18 years of marriage.

And Zoe Ball and her ex-husbandFatboy Slim joined forces to warn their son Woody, 18, to 'watch what he says on TV' as he gears up to feature on this year's edition of The Circle.

The Strictly Come Dancing: It Takes Two presenter, 48, and her DJ ex-husband, 56, have given their eldest child some advice as he prepares to compete for £100,000 on the second series of the game show.

In a recent interview, up-and-coming reality star Woody explained: 'My parents do know I'm doing the show and they are supportive. They have given me a lot to think about from past experiences, and advice.

'They said that what you say on TV is out there forever and you can't unsay it and that once you share too much you never unshare it', he added to Daily Star.

Presenter Zoe and DJ Fatboy - real name Norman Cook - wed in Somerset's Babington House back in 1999, and were together for nearly two decades.

In 2003, the pair - who share son Woody and daughter Nelly, nine - briefly called it quits before reconciling three months later. 

The radio and TV presenter is currently in a relationship with construction boss Michael Reed, while DJ Fatboy is said to be dating Zoe's former pal Nicola Lokko. 

The Circle is based around a reality setting in which contestants each live alone in an apartment and can only interact with each other via The Circle, a social media-type chat system, in a bid to become the most popular person and win £100,000.

Each contestant can choose whether they want to be themselves or take on a different persona, just like last year's winner Alex Hobern, who pretended to be 'Kate' the whole time.

Emma Willis, who has taken over presenting duties from Maya Jama and Alice Levine, is not the only change on the series this year.

According to Channel 4, viewers will be able to directly influence the game-playing in 'different dramatic ways' with the use of The Circle app.

In addition, mum-of-three Emma, 43, will also be making weekly live appearances featuring interactive elements.  

The former Big Brother host Emma Willis admitted the programme is perhaps not as naughty as Big Brother because the contestants don't meet face to face.

She explained: 'It is PG. But there are certain conversations that might happen that I wouldn't want my 10 year old to be watching! She probably needs to be a little bit older for this.' 

The Circle returns on Thursday at 10pm on Channel 4.
