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 seventh episode, there are fires and alarms – though not at the same time. Little Alex Horne is forced to sup cold soup, Lee Mack attacks a toy vole, and Sarah Kendall invents a sweet dressing for an unusual salad. Meanwhile, Charlotte Ritchie provides surprising sound effects for a set of Russian dolls.
