A FRESH batch of ordinary people will turn fugitive as the new series of Hunted returns to screens this week – but there's a brutal new twist.
Assistant chief constable of Cleveland Police, Lisa Theaker, is back to lead her team of handpicked hunters.
The real-life thriller sees ordinary people go on the run from a team of expert hunters made up of ex-military, law enforcement and security forces.
If the fugitives can evade capture for long enough they could win a share of the £100,000 prize money up for grabs.
The name of the game is for the contestants to avoid capture from highly skilled hunters.
They can take anything they can carry with them, including tents, food, and disguises, and they are given access to a bank account with £250 in it.

The elite line-up of police and military personnel will attempt to track down the fugitives using live CCTV, drones, tracker dogs, mobile phone monitoring and publicity campaigns.
And for the first time ever in Hunted history, the contestants must make their initial escape from an island.
They will arrive on a deserted beach on the Isle of Wight with just a small amount of cash and a change of clothes.
Contestants taking part in this series include an ex-military veteran, a serving police officer and a couple who are "experienced urban explorers".
