Taskmaster | Series 14 Preview (Channel 4)

The infallible Greg Davies returns to host a mighty new series of Taskmaster. With loins girded, he is poised to wreak havoc on the lives of five comics who must have known what they were signing up for yet went ahead and did it anyway.



Dara Ó Briain, Fern Brady, John Kearns, Munya Chawawa and Sarah Millican are the noble knights who are hoping to win this elaborate joust to become the 14th Taskmaster champion.



Nestled both in the heart of the action and at Greg’s feet when he goes to sleep at night is Little Alex Horne, the Taskmaster’s assistant, who literally subsists on a diet of crisps and statistics.




As our quintet of cowering comics head out into the wilderness to attempt hip-touching, hand-finding and milk-lifting, Alex will be taking notes and recording numbers with admirable (bordering on irritating) efficiency.


In the opening episode, Dara Ó Briain, Fern Brady, John Kearns, Munya Chawawa and Sarah Millican fumble frozen peas and shout about fish, while Greg’s ever-loyal puppy, Little Alex Horne, lurks furtively in the background.



Taskmaster returns Thursday 29th September at 9pm on Channel 4.
