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. In the fifth episode, Lee Mack raises serious questions around the use of cling film, Charlotte Ritchie anoints an insect, and Jamali Maddix nearly chokes on a many-sided dessert.
