CELEBRITY Hunted spectators were impressed with a gun trap set up in the home of Olympic champion Iwan Thomas.
The sprinter was paired with Paralympic gold medalist Richard Whitehead and they started on the cross-country track in hoping to avoid being caught for two full weeks.
Sprinter Iwan represented Great Britain at the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta, and still holds the official British 400m record – the record he won in 1997.
On the advice of onlookers at home, the athletes rented it to Iwan’s family home.
He quickly hugged his son before entering the garage to get supplies to help them run, including a sleeping bag.
Things became very difficult for the pair as the hunters slowly rolled home, but it was too late because the champions had gone on.
The hunters questioned Iwan’s wife about their whereabouts before insisting they “look around”.
But they got a big shock when they arrived to investigate the garage.
When they opened the garage door, a plume of smoke shot out from the ceiling in a distracting fireworks display.
