Feeling in a particularly festive mood, the almighty Taskmaster Greg Davies has once again gathered five famous faces for a standalone special on Channel 4.
Called Taskmaster’s New Year Treat, the one-off will see the formidable Taskmaster put these celebrity guests through their paces in a series of ludicrous challenges supervised by his devoted sidekick, Alex Horne.
The contestants hoping to impress are: broadcaster and journalist Adrian Chiles (BBC Radio 5 Live), television and radio presenter Claudia Winkleman (Strictly Come Dancing, BBC One), double Paralympic, World & European 100m Champion Jonnie Peacock MBE (Jonnie’s Blade Camp, Channel 4), rapper, singer, songwriter, producer, and TV personality Lady Leshurr (Don’t Hate the Playaz, ITV 2), and lawyer, businesswoman, campaigner and Ex Cabinet Minister Baroness Sayeeda Warsi (Have I Got News for You, BBC One), who will each compete for a chance to win a coveted Taskmaster trophy in the most ridiculous game show on television.
