Hunted | Interview with Emma Davidson and Jess Kirkham

Emma Davidson, 23, Neo-Natal Intensive care Nurse and Jess Kirkham, 27, a Neuro Intensive care Nurse – both from Devon for the new series of Hunted.

So, why do you want to take part in Hunted?

Emma – We want to go on Hunted because we are here for a bit of fun.

Jess – More fun than anything.

Emma –And just to do something that we have not done before. Together.

Jess – New experiences.

Jess – Meeting new people,

Emma – Building ourselves. Maybe a bit of soul searching, as you do.

Jess – Proving to ourselves that we can do something completely ridiculous.

Emma – Yes, and proving to other people…

Jess – There are a lot of people saying ‘You won’t last two minutes’, ‘Oh my god they will catch you in two minutes.’

Emma – ‘They will recognise you in two minutes.’ Hmm, I don’t think so!

Jess – Well I hope not…

Emma – Yeah I hope not, we will see.

How will you succeed, what tactics will you employ, and are there any that you have seen from previous series of Hunted that you would like to employ or avoid.

Emma – I think that people are going to underestimate us. Because we come across quite silly, and we have some good plans and some very good contacts that will benefit us along the way.

Jess – We have a lot of disguises.

Emma – A lot of disguises yeah, some of which I think have used before in the past. But not to the extent that we are doing.

Jess – We are going to blow your mind!

Emma – Yeah, we will.

Jess – We just don’t want to be caught basically.

Emma – We are going to avoid that tactic, of getting caught, like some of the other people did.

Jess –We can go rural if we want to, stay in hotels. We are just going to try and appeal to the public to help us…

Emma – Fit in.

Jess – Yeah, fit in. You have charmed me!

What do you think that the experience of being on the run will really be like and how confident are you, that you can stay hidden until the end?

Jess – Do you know, I think I am very confident but I don’t want to be naïve and in denial about it.

Emma – Yeah same. I am pretty sure that we have some pretty good tactics up our sleeves, that I am hoping that we are going to execute really well, but…

Jess – We can’t plan too much, we are rolling with it, hour by hour.

Emma – If you have a plan, they will find out your plan, if you don’t…

Jess – I mean, to be fair, if we don’t know where we are, how are they going to know?

Emma – Exactly.

Emma – We have got to stay undetectable.
