Rejected by a number of TV stations when it was pitched to them by creator Alex Horne, Taskmaster was eventually picked up by Dave and became an instant hit with critics and audiences when it aired in 2015.

Series six sensibly doesn’t mess with its winning formula – Greg Davies announces the tasks, Alex Horne acts as his impish sidekick, while the contestants do their best to complete what are often ridiculous challenges.

Tim Vine, Asim Chaudhry, Liza Tarbuck, Alice Levine and Russell Howard are the fearless fivesome in the firing line this time.

And fans of the show will also be delighted to hear that episode two lands on catch-up service UKTV Play right after episode one.
