Hosts Greg Davies and Alex Horne will have new comedic contestants for the new series of Taskmaster

Hugh Dennis, Joe Lycett, Lolly Adefope, Mel Giedroyc and Noel Fielding are set to be the next contestants in the new series of Taskmaster.

Each guest will compete to be crowned Taskmaster champion in series four of the hit show starring BAFTA-nominated Greg Davies and Foster's Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee Alex Horne.

A new series of Taskmaster, 2015's most watched commission on UKTV Play, is scheduled to air in 2017.

In each series the Taskmaster and his loyal assistant will judge five new unwitting comedians as they compete against each other with creativity, cunning and genius in a series of stupefying tasks.
