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 desperate to display Greg’s regal golden head on their mantelpiece this time are: Alan Davies, Desiree Burch, Guz Khan, Morgana Robinson and Victoria Coren Mitchell. This captivating quintet will attempt numerous seemingly pointless tasks that test their ingenuity, dexterity and calmness under extreme pressure. Whoever does best at slathering stuff on space hoppers, hurling household appliances and digging through doggy bags will become the 12th Taskmaster champion and, more importantly, the apple of the Taskmaster’s eye. This time, our five comedic contestants continue to compete against each other but, for the first time this series, they must also show off some teamwork as they’re faced with a mountain to climb. Alex Horne keeps a diligent record of events as Morgana Robinson investigates suspect doggy bags and Guz Khan slaps a space hopper.
