The BAFTA-winning comedy game show returns for an 11th series with a new 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 beard-trimmer Alex Horne diligently takes notes, records times and offers very little assistance to the five competitors, as they attempt tasks involving the perils of airport security, fashion for insects and the creative application of cling film and gaffer tape.
In the first episode, viewers are introduced to the merry band of comics, and Alex records the key details as pests are controlled and plates are delivered.
Taskmaster returns Thursday 18th March at 9pm on Channel 4.
