Hunted: Who is Helen Chamberlain? Age and police career of Channel 4's detective!

Channel 4‘s Hunted is back on our screens with a brand new series this year and a bright new line-up of contestants.

The show challenges ordinary civilians to hide from a team of top detectives without leaving a trail behind themselves. For the purpose of that, they run to random cities across the UK and take only what they need.

The hunting lasts for 25 days, but only those who cover their tracks will get to the coveted money prize of £100,000. However, that’s not easy when there are highly-skilled investigators looking out for them.

One of Hunted’s investigators is Helen Chamberlain. Here’s everything you need to know about her, including her age, police career and Twitter.
