Series 9 / Episode 1

Greg Davies is the Taskmaster and he is back for a glorious ninth series of the show that bears his grand title. This season's brand new high-class hopefuls are: David Baddiel, Ed Gamble, Jo Brand, Katy Wix and Rose Matafeo. These five intrepid contestants face a vast array of simple yet complicated tasks over ten episodes that they must try to perform without making themselves look foolish, lest they face a vicious verbal whipping from an angry man on a big throne. Their challenges range from secreting shiny vegetables to bringing a classic board game to life, to performing a sensational self-serenade. And, after ten episodes, one of them will exult in the grandeur of becoming a Taskmaster Champion.
