The show will air on Channel 4 next year.

RuPaul’s Drag Race UK winner The Vivienne and Made In Chelsea’s Oliver Locke are among the stars who have signed up for the forthcoming series of Celebrity Hunted.

The Channel 4 programme, which sees well-known pairings use all means possible to evade professional chasers, is returning for a fourth series in aid of Stand Up To Cancer.

The Vivienne will be working alongside reality TV personality Chloe Veitch, who has appeared on Too Hot To Handle and The Circle, while Locke will be joined by his husband Gareth.

The teams will face professional chasers with experience in the police, intelligence services and Army.
