Taskmaster returns for more Bafta winning idiocy, now in its new home on Channel 4. The Taskmaster is, of course, man-mountain Greg Davies, and as ever he is assisted by his tiny administrative wonk, Alex Horne. The five lambs to the slaughter for this sparkling season are: Daisy May Cooper, Johnny Vegas, Katherine Parkinson, Mawaan Rizwan and Richard Herring.
This brand new series features a whole heap of brand new tasks, from teapot-decorating to footwear-catapulting, designed to test the ingenuity and creativity of these talented contestants. After 10 episodes, the winner will walk away with Greg’s golden head tucked under one arm and a genuine sense of accomplishment tucked under the other. The losers, meanwhile, may never recover from the wounds inflicted by the Taskmaster’s serrated tongue.
Taskmaster, starts 9pm Thursday 15th October on Channel 4. Catch series 1-9 on All 4
