The Taskmaster team will be ringing in the New Year with a brand-new special for Channel 4 called Taskmaster’s New Year Treat.
The hard-driving Taskmaster Greg Davies and his assistant Alex Horne will be welcoming five famous faces from across the varied spectrum of news and entertainment to compete against each other in ludicrous challenges.
Channel 4 news anchor Krishnan Guru-Murphy will be battling against Derry Girls star Nicola Coughlan, television presenter Rylan Clark-Neal, superstar dancer and Strictly judge Shirley Ballas and acclaimed film actor John Hannah (Four Weddings and a Funeral) to win the coveted Taskmaster trophy.
Through a series of strange and surreal challenges, the five competitors will be tested on their wisdom, wit and wiles.
Taskmaster’s New Year Treat will air on Channel 4 over the festive period.
