A FORMER Royal Air Force serviceman is to go back on the hunt for 10 members of the public as he returns to the cast of hit reality TV show Hunted.

Kayam Iqbal, from Bury, will feature in the upcoming fifth series of the Channel 4 when it returns to screens tonight.

An original hunter from the show’s pilot around five years ago, the ex-military specialist will once again be putting his skills to the test pursuing the group of ordinary British citizens on the ground as they attempt to evade detection around the country.

The 39-year-old started his military career in 1999 as a medic in the RAF and completed tours of Iraq and Afghanistan.

Over an 11-year career, Mr Iqbal went on to specialise in languages working with various specialist units across NATO countries.

He now runs his own award-winning business and is a champion for mental health and supporting ex-military people back into civilian life.

Hunted will air on Channel 4 from 9pm tonight.
