Hunted contestant has a novel way of hiding...in a high-vis jacket

Eyes peeled, TV viewers – Hunted is back.

Channel 4 has launched series two of the reality show that sees a group of contestants attempt to stay completely off radar for 28 days, while a team of professional “hunters” try to catch them.

This time, there’s a cash prize on offer of a share of £100,000 for those who make it all the way to the end, so competition is fierce…or is it?

Househusband Nick Cummings baffled viewers with his policy of cycling everywhere, carrying a huge bag, and being painfully polite to everyone who crossed his path.

Nick’s tactics got even better when it turned out his bag harboured a series of cunning disguises – including a luminous, high-vis jacket which he wasted no time in donning as the hunters closed in on him.

But while for a second it looked like Nick may be the quickest ever capture, his odd game plan turned to his advantage when he got lost on his bike, managing to evade the hunters in the process.
