BAFTA winning actress Katherine Parkinson (IT Crowd, Channel 4)

Wax seals will open, dreams will be made and/or broken, and Little Alex Horne will be wrapped around his master’s little finger providing stats and moral support in the most ridiculous and ferociously fought game show on television.

Taskmaster series 10 will launch on Channel 4 in the autumn, airing 9PM on Thursday nights from October 15.

The comedy game show sees a group of famous comedians set a series of bizarre and challenging task by almighty Taskmaster Greg Davies.

Faithful underling sidekick, Alex Horne accompanies the Taskmaster equipped with spreadsheets and stopwatches, eager to facilitate his master’s every whim and adjudicate his loose point system to determine a winner.


Originally aired on UKTV’s Dave, it was announced in 2019 that Channel 4 had signed a six-series deal to air the show with repeated episodes on E4.

Alex Horne said previously: “It seems like the right time to move to a channel with a broader audience and I can reassure people who like the show that it won’t be changing one bit and I’ll still be forced to do things no one should ever have to do.”
