Think you've got what it takes to be a contestant on Channel 4's Hunted?

Well, the producers behind the fugitive show are looking for applicants for the next series and are keen to get people from Lancashire on-board.

After the success of the current series, which has seen Accy lad, Matt Mason, attempt to outrun a team of surveillance gurus, Shine TV want more northerners to try their luck at disappearing in one of the most watched nations on earth.

A spokesperson for Shine TV said: "We are looking for men and women to try and evade capture from a team of expert trackers.

"We want people aged 18 and over, 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.

"A prize of £100,000 will be shared equally between the fugitives who successfully evade capture and we will cover reasonable pre-agreed loss of earnings for everyone who participates."

On Thursday night's episode, it was touch and go for East Lancs' favourite fugitive, as the Hunters closed in on Matt Mason once again.

After making his way down to Devon, Matt, who is also taking part in the treacherous Ocean Revival North Atlantic Row next year, planned to set up an ambush in order to test the Hunters, taking the game to new extremes.

During the show, Matt lured the Hunters to his location, hoping to use the art of deception to ruin their chase.

He said: "I'm ready to take the fight to the Hunters. I think it's time I gave them a slap. I'm going to leave them bruised and red-faced."

Blissfully unaware that Peter Bleksley and his team of cronies were two-steps ahead of him, the Royal Marine from Clayton-le-Moors took to the beaches of Saunton Sands to try and intercept them.

And that's where the show finished, leaving viewers on the edge of their seats, wondering what's in store next for the 29-year-old.

Speaking after the programme finished, Matt said: "It was another busy episode with lots going on. It seems I'm left in quite a tight spot for the beginning of next week.

"My time in North Devon was perhaps the most fun during filming and believe me when I say I took full advantage of the beaches and fine weather."

To see if Matt can make it past the penultimate episode and into the final, tune in next Thursday at 9pm.

Closing date for applications for the next series of Hunted is Monday February 11.
