What’s on? 10 top TV and streaming tips for Tuesday

The reality show Celebrity Hunted, returns, there are more gorgeous gaffs on Home of the Year, Anton & Giovanni’s Adventures in Sicily hits Mount Etna, and there’s the final DNA Journeys . . .

Pick of the Day

Celebrity Hunted, 9.00pm, Channel 4

The celebrity reality show returns for another, eh, run.

Comedians James Acaster (below) and Ed Gamble, Strictly dancer Katya Jones, Olympic snowboarder Aimee Fuller, actors Nicola Thorp and Nikesh Patel are among the contestants.

There’s also mathematician Bobby Seagull, social media star Saffron Barker and TV therapists Nik and Eva Speakman – they all go on the run across Britain while an elite team of police and military personnel try to track them down.

The hunters being armed with the powers of the state – CCTV and ANPR cameras, drones, dogs, mobile phone tracking and social media publicity campaigns, means the celebrities have to be creative to evade capture.

As the competitors escape from Shrewsbury prison and go on the run, the hunters are instantly on their tails, tracking them with CCTV cameras and a helicopter.

James and Ed make a daring move with a six-course tasting menu at a Michelin guide restaurant while Nik and Eva escape on a tandem bike.
