What's happening in Series 4?

Taskmaster returns for its first ever fourth series as five more comedians battle it out to impress the Taskmaster himself, Greg Davies, by creatively completing his fiendish assignments.

Taskmaster Series 4

As usual, Greg delivers his judgements on their efforts with an iron fist wrapped in a spiky glove. Naturally, his well-trained assistant Alex Horne always has his back, as he expertly supervises tasks, provides slick statistical analysis and offers endearing, unconditional love to his master.

New competitors Hugh Dennis, Joe Lycett, Lolly Adefope, Mel Giedroyc and Noel Fielding all truly believe they have what it takes to land their hands on the much-coveted golden representation of Greg's noble skull. Watch as they put their bodies and their reputations on the line every time they break that hallowed wax seal to reveal their next challenge.

So, how will these five comics fare when faced with tasks involving cuddly camels, pommel horses and real live dogs? Is it possible to create a convincing celebrity portrait using loo roll? And what's the best way to transport plain flour five metres with the use of balloons, tortillas and fishing line? Such problems inspire both breath-taking ingenuity and borderline idiocy from these fine young/old competitors.
