Taskmaster is back for another brilliant series that has already left fans in stitches.
Overseen by Greg Davies and sidekick Alex Horne, the duo have been joined by the likes of This Country’s Daisy May Cooper, Johnny Vegas, Katherine Parkinson, Mawaan Rizwan and Richard Herring – who have already completed a number of seriously wild challenges.
But while captivated by what the celebs are being asked to do, viewers at home have been left wondering where the show’s iconic house is.
And it turns out the filming location is set in London’s leafy district of Chiswick.
That’s right, the property is close to Chiswick Bridge and, according to Radio Times, the former ground keeper’s cottage was once listed to rent for £4,117 per month.
Director Andy Devonshire told the publication: ‘We move in and live here for the period of filming.
‘After series one, I think they had some people come in and stay over the summer, but we de-Taskmaster it when we go away so it is very different.
‘There’s a different theme inspired by a specific artist every series so there’s obviously things that stay the same but we redecorate within the boundaries of that.
‘When we leave it’s quite minimalist.’
This year’s series was mostly filmed before the pandemic, however, when social distancing was put in place, the gang moved down the road to Pinewood Studios, in Slough.
And it seems fans are in for a treat tonight, as Mawaan is back up against Daisy, Katherine, Johnny and Richard.
However, things go slightly wrong for the comedian as he finds himself disqualified after missing the entire point of the task.
The second episode will air tonight on Channel 4 after an impressive run of nine seasons on Dave.
It’s not to be missed!
Taskmaster continues Thursdays at 9pm on Channel 4.
