Yellowbellies needed to evade hunters for C4 show

Find out how to apply inside the story

Yellowbellies who fancy their chances at evading capture should look no further as Channel 4’s Hunted is looking for new applicants…but there is only a week left to apply.

With some of the world’s best investigators, along with cutting edge technology, out looking for you, going on the run is definitely a difficult challenge.

Contestants known as “fugitives” are put to the test as they attempt to evade capture by a group of former police and intelligence officers (the “hunters”) for around 25 days.

Applications should be completed here by February 11 2019, with a short video (maximum three minutes) introducing yourself and explaining why you’d like to go on the run. A photograph will also be required.

Anyone applying to go on the run with friends/family/colleagues can just submit one application for one member of the group. However, all of the group should ideally be in the video submitted with the application.

Steve is pictured here with other hunters from the show.

A Lincoln man is currently starring in the latest series of Hunted, helping to catch the people on the run.

Steve Cottam had just left special operations in the military when the show’s producers asked him to join the show before it first aired in September 2015.

He spoke to The Lincolnite last month, revealing what he would do if he got the chance to be a fugitive.
