They'll be joined by comedians, TV hosts and former Strictly Come Dancing stars Chris Ramsey and Judi Love.


A teaser for the new series shares: "Having voluntarily signed up for the inevitable metaphorical slaughter at the hands of the tyrannical Taskmaster, each contestant will be put through their paces in a brand new set of tasks designed to test their daring, dexterity and dignity under extreme pressure.

"Who of our latest quintet will be immortalised in the Taskmaster Champion hall of fame?"

The last series of Taskmaster concluded in November. The run featured Alan Davies, Desiree Burch, Guz Khan, Morgana Robinson and Victoria Coren Mitchell taking part.

Meanwhile alongside series 13, 2022 is set to see a second Champion of Champions spin-off.


It will welcome back Series 6 to 10 winners Liza Tarbuck, Kerry Godliman, Lou Sanders, Ed Gamble and Richard Herring as they return to battle it out for the ultimate Taskmaster title.

Taskmaster originally debuted in 2015 on Dave before moving to Channel 4 from series 10 in 2020.
