Celebrity Hunted

Celebrity Hunted

The award-winning Celebrity Hunted for Stand Up To Cancer returns as eight famous faces turn fugitive and attempt to evade capture from an elite team of 30 hunters. The hunters are led by Hunted’s first female chief, Cleveland Police Assistant Chief Constable Lisa Theaker. Taking part are Olympic silver medallist Iwan Thomas with two-time Paralympic gold medallist Richard Whitehead; Made in Chelsea stars Ollie and Gareth Locke-Locke; actor Chizzy Akudolu with queen of UK garage Lisa Maffia; and Drag Race UK winner The Vivienne with international reality TV star Chloe Veitch. The celebrities attempt to stay off the radar and remain at large for two weeks as the crack team of hunters – a hand-picked team of police, intelligence and military personnel, armed with the powers of the state – throw everything at the cause in an attempt to track them down. Can the celebrity fugitives escape the glare of the spotlight and stay free? In the first episode, the eight celebs go on the run from central London, taking a high-powered speedboat along the Thames, chased by a hunter helicopter. After docking and dispersing at the London Eye, Made in Chelsea’s Ollie and Gareth Locke-Locke opt for a dangerously conspicuous getaway vehicle, which the hunters track all the way to Chelsea. Actor Chizzy Akudolu and So Solid Crew singer Lisa Maffia escape on a tuk-tuk, frustrating the hunters, who are unable to track them. Athletes Iwan Thomas and Richard Whitehead make a daring move, but when their decoy fails, the hunters are in hot pursuit. Having adopted disguises – as two old ladies – reality star Chloe Veitch and drag queen The Vivienne decide to remain in central London. But a phone call to Viv’s husband alerts HQ to their exact location. Will it be game over for the fugitives in just 24 hours?
