THE Circle's Nana Dot says he could have flirted with Syed more – but was scared his wife would be watching at home.
Scott – who played his 85-year-old nan on the Channel 4 show – struck up a friendship with Syed (who is really Hashu playing his 60-year-old uncle), before he became the latest person to be blocked by him and Manrika.
But Scott has now exclusively told The Sun he wishes he could have "played" with Syed a bit more – but he was worried about his wife back home.
He told us: "I think maybe I could have played a bit more with Syed. Cause we’re both young people playing old people.
"But I genuinely thought he was a 60-year-old man, and he had a wife, I didn’t want to push his buttons too much.
"Maybe I would’ve been a bit more cheeky with Syed and had a bit more fun with him. But I wanted to go in there and be this innocent lovely old lady that people sort of warm to. I wanted to create The Circle nan."
Scott says he backs Hashu to win the whole thing, saying: "I think he’s just playing an absolute blinder and he’s just so convincing as Syed.
"The thing with Hashu, he’s the most amazing, warm-hearted person and that really radiates through with Syed.
"Him and Hashu together just creates the perfect relationship. He’s such an amazing character, even the players have said, 'we have our suspicions but we just loving talking to you.'"
Scott has also considered the implications of catfishing as an 85-year-old woman – but says it's all "part of the game".
He said: "there were some moments in there, I thought even I have been too far. People are telling me stories of their nan passing away, or they were so close to their nan, that was when I thought, ‘Have I taken this too far maybe?’"
He added: "Now looking back, I now think – Syed’s reaction, especially when he was genuinely really upset – I was like, maybe I do feel a bit bad. But I was also like, you’re a big fat catfish as we.
"I don’t regret anything and I don’t think I would change anything."
The Circle continues tonight 10pm on Channel 4 and All4
