CONTESTANTS from the Black Country are sought to take part in the next series of hit TV show Hunted.

Produced by Shine TV, the makers of The Island and MasterChef, the Channel 4 show follows gutsy volunteers as they try to go off grid and become a fugitive.

A prize of £100,000 will be shared equally between those who successfully evade capture by the show's expert trackers.

Casting producer David Rhodes said: "We are keen to hear from people from a variety of backgrounds and professions who think they have what it takes to disappear in 21st century Britain.

"They could be going it alone or with friends, family or colleagues – as long they think they can take on The Hunters."
