Hunted is back for 2024: Meet the contestants taking part in the new series.

Across the UK 12 ordinary people have turned fugitive. If they can successfully outwit an elite team of hunters for 21 days, they will win a share of a £100,000 prize.

On the run across the length and breadth of the UK, the fugitives will be looking over their shoulders, ever fearful that the hunters have picked up their trail.

Leading the investigation at Hunted HQ is Chief Superintendent of Cleveland Police Lisa Theaker, who oversees a handpicked team of top police and military personnel, armed with the powers of the state, including live CCTV, ANPR, GPS positioning, drones, tracker dogs, mobile phone monitoring, publicity campaigns and, for the first time, motorbikes

Hunted airs Sunday nights at 9PM on Channel 4 and All 4.
