The surreal, silly challenge series returns, with one of the most inspired presenter pairings – the almost professorial Alex Horne and noisy show-off Greg Davies – again driving the action.

And if you need proof of Taskmaster’s success, look at the quality of the guests this time around.

Only character comedian Lolly Adefope will need introducing to some viewers.

She joins Mel Giedroyc, Hugh Dennis, Joe Lycett and Noel Fielding.

Things get off to a rocking start as the contestants are asked to come up with the most creative way of destroying a cake.

Mel’s Bake Off past has got to give her an edge, surely?
