Series 15 Line-Up Announcement

As the sun sets on the latest series of the international hit show, Taskmaster reveals a brand-new line-up of contestants who are set to compete in the 15th series of the critically-acclaimed task tournament. The infallible Greg Davies will resume his role as the formidable Taskmaster, accompanied by his faithful sidekick Little Alex Horne who is poised and ready to provide stats, data and occasional comfort in the most bizarre yet cut-throat show on television.

The pair will adjudicate, praise and scorn accordingly the efforts of comedian and TV host Frankie Boyle (Frankie Boyle’s New World Order, BBC Two), stand-up comedian Ivo Graham (Have I Got News For You, BBC One), award-winning comedian Jenny Eclair (Older and Wider), actor and writer Kiell Smith-Bynoe (Ghosts, BBC One), and award-winning Canadian comedian, actor, writer and producer Mae Martin (Feel Good, Netflix). After 10 episodes, one contestant will emerge victorious, and in their humble hands they will be holding the single greatest prize in the history of television: the Taskmaster’s golden head glued to a small plinth.

The news arrives ahead of the third instalment of Taskmaster’s New Year Treat which is set to air on Channel 4 this winter with a one-off line-up of celebrity contestants from entirely different and diverse spheres of entertainment including: comedian, creator, host and journalist Amelia Dimoldenberg (Chicken Shop Date), TV host, numbers queen and First Lady of Channel 4 Carol Vorderman (Pride of Britain, ITV), presenter and writer Greg James, four time Olympic Champion Sir Mo Farah, and Mercury Music Prize & Brit Award nominated pop star Rebecca Lucy Taylor aka Self Esteem.
