Two comedians picked a Todmorden restaurant and pub to hide in when they were trying to escape The Hunters during the Stand Up to Cancer Celebrity Hunted TV show.

James Acaster and Ed Gamble stayed the night at Staff of Life on Burnley Road, with Ed even doing his radio show from the pub’s office.

As this week’s episode showed, the pair stumbled upon the real ale pub and restaurant after leaving the home of fellow fugitives and behavioural therapists Nik and Eva Speakman.

The pub posted on its Facebook page when James and Ed were there back in July: “When we helped Ed Gamble and James Acaster escape from The Hunters, they stayed overnight and Ed did his Sunday morning radio show from our office.

"We had a ball and so did our other B and B guests.”
