The Grierson Award winning and BAFTA nominated factual entertainment thriller, Celebrity Hunted, will return to Channel 4 next year for a brand-new fourth series as eight more famous faces go on the run as fugitives, hoping to evade capture by the Hunters.

The celebrity fugitives taking part in the series for Stand Up To Cancer are confirmed as:

Olympic silver medallist Iwan Thomas and two-time Paralympic gold medallist Richard Whitehead
Made in Chelsea stars Ollie and Gareth Locke
Actress Chizzy Akudolu and queen of UK garage Lisa Maffia
Drag Race UK winner The Vivienne and international reality TV star Chloe Veitch.
The eight celebrities will attempt to stay off the radar and remain at large for two weeks as a new crack team of hunters try and hunt them down. With former police officers, intelligence, and army personnel hot on their tail and faces recognisable across the UK, will they be able to remain undetected?

The celebrities will be taking part for Stand Up To Cancer, the joint national fundraising campaign from Cancer Research UK and Channel 4.

Celebrity Hunted is produced by Shine TV, part of Banijay UK and the Executive Producer is Tom Hutchings. The Series Producers are Lucy Curtis and Dave Sutton. The series is commissioned for Channel 4 by Ian Dunkley, Commissioning Editor, Factual Entertainment.

Ian Dunkley, Commissioning Editor for Factual Entertainment at Channel 4 said, “We are pleased to be bringing back the edge-of-your-seat game of cat and mouse with a confident batch of VIPs supporting the Stand Up To Cancer campaign. The forthcoming run will see both the Fugitives and the Hunters come up against new challenges in a Britain that has drastically changed since 2019’s series. We’re looking forward to seeing who will emerge as victors.”

Tom Hutchings, Executive Producer for Shine TV added, “Hunted is back. More crazy fugitive tactics, more Jason Bourne tech, and more mayhem than ever before. We’ve 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.”

Celebrity Hunted and Hunted will air on Channel 4 in 2022.
