Hunted’s Frank and Harry Savage reveal mum’s tragic death WEEKS before show

Hunted fans were desperate to see brothers Frank and Harry Savage win the show.

The pair were camping and wandering around the countryside to evade the hunters, while the hunters plotted ways to bring them in, noting how devastated they would be at this time in their lives.

While viewers may have been questioning why this is, the pair then revealed the heartbreaking circumstances which drove them to taking part – the death of their mother.

In a difficult moment, the pair revealed their mother had been diagnosed with early on-set Alzheimer’s, and it caused her death just three years later.

But their tragedy was made worse by the fact their father died only a few years before in far more sudden circumstances, meaning the pair were orphans before they started their getaway journey.

In a difficult moment for the pair, Harry started crying as they waited at a cafe, with Frank going over to comfort him, making him feel better after weeks of solitude and a tough time.

They revealed they had a "tough time," especially as their mother’s death took place just four months before they took part in the experiment.
