What does Celebrity Hunted for Stand Up to Cancer involve?

As with the civilian version of Hunted, our celebrities must avoid being captured by the Hunters – comprised of former and serving police, intelligence personnel, and on-foot teams.

The Hunters can use any legal means to trace our celebs, using call-tracing, CCTV, number-plate recognition and freedom of information requests to track and locate.

While our celebrities are in pairs, they are under no obligation to stay together for the entire 14 days, often separating in a bid to increase their chances of survival.

Should they last the full two weeks without being detected, our celebs need to make it to the extraction zone in order to win a share of the £100,000 for charity.

The 2018 series saw politician John Mercer and Strictly star AJ Pritchard splitting the prize fund as the last fugitives standing.
