Taskmaster Greg Davies and his loyal sidekick Little Alex Horne host the 12th series of the BAFTA-winning comedy game show. The five brave souls this time are: Alan Davies, Desiree Burch, Guz Khan, Morgana Robinson and Victoria Coren Mitchell.

In this episode, Greg Davies climbs aboard his judgement throne once more and tells his cracking cast of comics exactly what he thinks of their efforts to impress him. 

Will he be pleased with Desiree Burch affixing tennis balls to gaffer tape? Or Victoria Coren Mitchell constructing a rudimentary pulley system? Or Alan Davies finding out how many circles he can carry? Dedicated stenographer Alex Horne carefully writes it all down for the history books.

Taskmaster – Thursday at 9pm on Channel 4
