Celebrity Hunted has begun revealing the line-up for its new series - with Love Island favourites Chris Hughes and Kem Cetinay among the famous faces on the run.

Chris and Kem have become reality TV pros since their bromance won them legions of fans on ITV2's dating contest.

Kem took part in Dancing On Ice, while Chris starred in 'Chris & Olivia: Crackin' On' with his former girlfriend, Olivia Attwood.

They're also currently appearing together in 'You vs. Chris & Kem', in which they take on tasks sent in via social media.

However, the duo have now put themselves up for an even bigger challenge after agreeing to join Celebrity Hunted.

The Channel 4 show sees pairs of celebs become fugitives as they go on the run from the 'hunters', a group of former police and intelligence officers.

They must avoid being captured for two weeks in order to claim victory at the end of the series.

"Chris and Kem have remained mates since leaving Majorca, where they provided plenty of laughs for Love Island viewers," a source told The Mirror.

"Let’s hope they do the same on Hunted."

Meanwhile, Sky News anchor Kay Burley has teamed up with Conservative MP Johnny Mercer.

The team at Hunted HQ took to social media this week appealing for information on the whereabouts of both duos.

"Have you seen @chrishughes_22 and @KemCetinay?" they wrote in one Twitter post.

Another reads: "Have you seen this boat? 2018 Brig Eagle 650H, black in colour with Suzuki DF200 outboard.

"TV Presenter @KayBurley and MP @JohnnyMercerUK are on the run for charity."

They're not the only celebrities being targeted by the hunters.

According to The Mirror, two Strictly Come Dancing stars - Olympian Louis Smith and professional dancer AJ Pritchard - are also taking part.

Celebrity Hunted, part of the Stand Up To Cancer campaign, is likely to air on Channel 4 later this year.

Bosses have also ordered a fourth series of the regular Hunted, featuring members of the public.
