RuPaul’s Drag Race UK winner The Vivienne and Made In Chelsea’s Ollie Locke are some of many stars confirmed for the upcoming series of Celebrity Hunted.
The Channel 4 programme, which sees well-known pairings use all means possible to evade professional chasers, is returning for a fourth series in aid of Stand Up To Cancer.

Channel 4’s commissioning editor for factual entertainment, Ian Dunkley, 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.’
He added: ‘We’re looking forward to seeing who will emerge as victors.’
Former Holby City actress Chizzy Akudolu, who also appeared in series 15 of Strictly Come Dancing, will team up with UK garage singer and former member of So Solid Crew Lisa Maffia.
The final couple will be Olympic silver medallist sprinter Iwan Thomas and two-time Paralympic gold medallist Richard Whitehead, who has set world records in the full and half marathon.
The teams will face professional chasers with experience in the police, intelligence services and the army.
Tom Hutchings, executive producer for Shine TV, said: ‘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,’ he added.
‘Up against them, our meanest team of hunters yet. Get ready for the thrill of the chase.’
