How Does It Work?
Hunted and its celebrity sequel Celebrity Hunted includes one of the most competitive formats on TV. For the Stand Up To Cancer special, 8 well-known participants get into pairs and must hide for two weeks.
They can carry anything with them, for instance, food and disguises, and they are entitled to have access to a bank account with £250 in it. They are restricted from leaving the UK.
Hot on their heels are an elite team of professional investigators, former intelligence workers, cops, and armed troops members.
They can utilize state-of-the-art technology to trace the fugitives, tracking their phones, tracing their bank accounts, looking for them through a helicopter, and summoning those assisting them. To win, the celebrity criminals will have to arrive at the extraction point without being captured by the officials.
The Executive Producer for Shine TV, which makes the series for Channel 4, Tom Hutchings says “Hunted is back. More crazy fugitive tactics, more Jason Bourne tech, and more mayhem than ever before.
We have a stellar set of celebrity fugitives – all fantastic characters, with impressive tricks up their sleeves. Up against them, our meanest team of Hunters yet. Get ready for the thrill of the chase.”
Who Will Be Joining as Contestants?
Chizzy is joining rapper Lisa Maffia. She says “It’s one of those experiences which you don’t get to have unless you’re actually on the run and I don’t plan on committing a crime any time soon!
It’ll be fascinating to find out what it is like to be constantly looking over your shoulder,” adding “We are in this to win this and between me and Lisa we’ve got a pretty good plan.”
Rapper and singer Lisa shot to fame as part of the So Solid Crew. She says “Every year I vow to do something big for Stand Up To Cancer. One in two people will get the Big C so we need to know how to fight this thing. My mum has terminal cancer.”
Iwan Thomas MBE is a Welsh sprinter as well as an Olympic silver medallist. He says “Sometimes I go into things like a bull in a china shop, but I need to slow down and think a little bit. Being in a team will be a good thing for me.”
Two-time Paralympic gold medallist Richard Whitehead MBE won the 200m T42 at the Rio and the London Olympics. He says “I want to show that whatever impairment and disability background you come from, it’s really important to challenge yourself outside your box.”
James Williams, popularly known as The Vivienne, is a drag queen who won the first series of RuPaul’s Drag Race UK back in 2019. She says “Being a drag queen and doing all these different personas on stage, I’m a master of disguise.
I’m able to make money on the road as well. We could do pop-up drag shows, sing for our supper, but in disguise,” adding “Chloe and I are both silly. We both love having fun. We don’t take things too seriously, but we get the job done. We’re the perfect match.”
Reality star Chloe was first seen on the series Too Hot to Handle in 2020. She says “The Vivienne and I are both bonkers, and I hope we can make people laugh whilst helping to raise some money for Stand Up To Cancer.”
Ollie first shot to fame on the reality show Made In Chelsea. He says “Gareth is the most stubborn man in the entire world competitively. I’m slightly more of a dreamer. So between us, we can add tenacity and fairytale all at the same time.”
Gareth is also a regular on Made In Chelsea, which he has been a part of since 2018. He says “This is a rare opportunity. It’s a life experience.”
