Applications for Channel 4’s latest series of Hunted are now open - could you win part of the £100,000 prize money?
The broadcaster and production company Shine TV are looking for people who believe they have what it takes to disappear in the UK in 2020 and evade a crack team of 'hunters' for 25 days.
Potential contestants are invited to apply on their own, in pairs or groups of three, with their friends, family or colleagues.
However, the professionals hunting them include former counter-terrorism police, undercover detectives from Scotland Yard and even a former military sniper.
All of the winners will get an equal share of the £100,000 prize money.
Details of this coming series are yet to be confirmed, but contestants have previously been dropped off together in one location in the UK and given a head start before the hunters being searching for them.
If they evade capture for long enough, they are given details of the game's finishing location and have to reach it without being caught to be crowned a winner.
