A teaser for the new series shares: “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.

“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 first episode, the contestants will be seen fumbling frozen peas and shouting about fish in attempt to win their way to the title.
