Stars from Strictly Come Dancing and Taskmaster have joined the line-up for Celebrity Hunted for Stand Up to Cancer.

The all-star version of the Channel 4 reality series sends 10 famous faces on the run from a team of highly-skilled former police and intelligence officers, in hopes of avoiding being caught.

The celebrity pairs have a much more difficult task than the civilian contestants as they are more likely to attract public attention, thus putting the Hunters on their trail.

This year's line-up features professional dancers, lifestyle gurus, comedians, top actors and even an Olympian trying to outrun the Hunters. Here's the official line-up:

  • Ed Gamble and James Acaster, of the Off Menu podcast and Taskmaster

  • Strictly Come Dancing professional Katya Jones and Olympic snowboarder Aimee Fuller

  • Lifestyle gurus Nik and Eva Speakman

  • Coronation Street actress Nicola Thorp and her partner The Devil’s Hour actor Nikesh Patel

These five pairs have the unenviable task of trying to stay hidden for two whole weeks without the Hunters figuring out their locations.

Producer Tom Hutchings has teased: "Get ready for the adventures of our best set of celebrity fugitives ever as we release them, for the first time, in epic prison break-out style! Expect the unexpected as our fugitives enlist the help of their celebrity friends, hide out in the most daring locations and get chased around the UK by our fearless team of Hunters, headed up by Chief Lisa Theaker."

Fans won't have to wait long to see if any of these teams survived, as Celebrity Hunted for Stand Up to Cancer airs later in March.
