The application deadline for the sixth series of Channel 4’s Hunted has been extended – there are still a few days to sign up.

The hit TV series follows a number of volunteers as they try to go “off the grid” and turn fugitive in the UK in a bid to win £100,000.

Now the team at Shine TV, behind the popular Channel 4 show, are looking for men and women of all ages to try and evade capture from a team of expert trackers.

A spokesman for the production company said: “We are looking for people from a variety of backgrounds and professions who think they have what it takes to disappear in 21st century Britain.
