Series overview
 
Release the Hounds is back and this time the stars of Emmerdale, Love Island, I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here, The Real Housewives of Cheshire and some top Olympic athletes go into to the woods to face their fears and attempt to win cash for charity.
 
 Matt Edmondson returns fresh from the Halloween special to preside over the award-winning ITV2, horror game-show from Primal Media which launches in January 2018.
 
In each episode, the teams of three celebrities experience some of the scariest challenges ever shown on TV. As darkness falls the horror intensifies and they’ll encounter mental and physical trials aimed to truly push them to their limits.
 
Finally, they must try and escape with the charity cash but their exit is guarded by a pack of wild hounds. If they outrun the dogs they keep the money. If they get caught… we don’t hear from them again.
 
Episode 5 - Olympians
 
In the last episode, Olympians Iwan Thomas, Louise Hazel and Jamie Baulch swap the athletics track for the dog run as they push themselves to their limits and attempt to take home the gold.
