Alan Davies and Victoria Coren Mitchell have led the line-up of Taskmaster series 12, as the Channel 4 show gears up for its return.
The formidable Taskmaster is back in business as Greg Davies returns alongside assistant (and the show’s real mastermind) Little Alex Horne, ready to terrorise five new contestants.
Comic Alan, 55, leads the line-up alongside writer and professional poker player and Only Connect host Victoria, 48.
Comic and Too Hot To Handle voiceover star Desiree Burch, 42, and Man Like Mobeen star Guz Khan, 35, will compete alongside them, along with impressionist Morgana Robinson, 39.
It comes after the show crowned its series 11 champion, with comedians Mike Wozniak, Sarah Kendall, Charlotte Ritchie, Lee Mack and Jamali Maddix competing,
In fact, the series 12 cast have got some big shoes to fill after the series 11 stars captured hearts, especially the ‘nation’s geography teacher’, Mike.

It took him a good few hours, and the sound that he made when it did happen – well, we can only describe it as ungodly. It later turned out that he’d dislodged a haemorrhoid, describing it in brutal detail in the studio.
‘There was the passage of air. The flatus had gone through, task tick,’ Mike explained.
‘What in fact I had done was is I had dislodged a haemorrhoid that had been sat there for quite a long time. That’s what you’re hearing. You’re hearing that moving through my anal canal, and back out into the outside in full bloom.’
We’re still not quite sure how to move on from that, but fingers crossed the series 12 cast can do something to get it out of our minds. We can only hope.
Taskmaster will return to Channel 4 later this year.
