The 11th series of the BAFTA-winning comedy game show continues, with a cast of hopefuls who are all keen as a condiment to win the most revered gong in television: a vague representation of Taskmaster Greg Davies’ head sprayed with gold paint. Those contestants are: Charlotte Ritchie, Jamali Maddix, Lee Mack, Mike Wozniak and Sarah Kendall. As ever, Greg’s personal assistant Alex Horne takes notes, records times and offers very little assistance to the five competitors as they compete in a series of pointless tasks. There are just three episodes left in the series, and Sarah Kendall still leads the race to win Greg’s stupendous skull-trophy. But the chasing pack are closing in, hoping beyond hope to score points by creatively munching on snacks (Charlotte Ritchie), drawing pretty wings (Jamali Maddix) and being brutally honest about emergency plane landings (Lee Mack). Little Alex Horne watches it all unfold and makes neat notes for his Taskmaster Daddy.
