What is Celebrity Hunted all about?

Just like the regular show, the famous faces will film themselves as they take extreme measures to try to evade capture from expert hunters.

What they do and where they go will be up to them.

All of the celebs will be dropped off at the same starting point, but the rest is in their hands.

With a team of Hunters, which includes police officers, intelligence and army personnel, hot on their trail, how long will they be able to stay undetected?

What is the starting point for Celebrity Hunted?

On this series, the escapees will have a tough time lying low.

This is because they all have to disappear from a London hotspot – Somerset House.

The vast landmark, which is absolutely crawling with security and CCTV, is located in Strand.

As soon as the celebrities are set loose at this location, it’s up to them to decide where they’ll be heading.

While show producers are keeping tight-lipped about where the contestants end up, we have managed to piece together some clues.

Rumour has it that Made In Chelsea boys Jamie Laing and Spencer Matthews will be trying to escape to the Isle of Wight via HELICOPTER.

Where is Hunted HQ?

Hunted HQ, which is a hub for experienced agents and experts, is nestled in an undisclosed location in central London.

Among the crack-team of specialists are former detectives and anti-terrorism officers.

This includes:

  • Brett Loverage – Chief Hunter and former Head of Counter Terrorism Command for the City of London
  • Cindy Storer – Ex CIA Analyst
  • Ben Owen – Former member of British Military Intelligence and sniper
  • Peter ‘Bleks’ Bleksley – Former undercover detective with Scotland Yard

How are the celebrities filmed on Hunted?

To avoid detection, each celebrity is given their own cameraman to accompany them on their journey.

This raw footage gives viewers the real feeling of being on the run.

Channel 4’s camera crew then follow the Hunters as they draw in closer on the fugitives.
