Season 8 of Taskmaster with Greg Davies & Alex Horne returns to UKTV next month.
They’ll again be forcing five British comics to complete meaningless challenges designed to test their creativity, speed of thought and ability to not look like idiots.
This aired in the UK in May.
The five brave souls girding themselves to face the Taskmaster’s wrath when they inevitably fail on the last count are: Iain Stirling, Joe Thomas, Lou Sanders, Paul Sinha and Sian Gibson.
They all face a long, hard journey, but for one of them it will be worth it when they reach the end of 10 gruelling episodes and triumphantly lift Greg’s golden head above their own (inferior) human head to become the eighth Taskmaster champion.
Which one of them will have that honour very much depends on how they tackle Greg’s tricky tasks. All five will have their spectacular successes and their unfathomable failures, but in the end perhaps the winner will simply be the one who provokes the least fury from the terrifying Taskmaster.
Tuesdays at 9.30pm from October 8 on UKTV.
