In an effort to boost morale during self-isolation, Taskmaster host Alex Horne has created a new boredom-busting viral challenge.
The #hometasking challenge brings the premise of Taskmaster, where a group of comedians are tasked with completing seemingly simple tasks in the most inventive and amusing ways possible, to people at home.
The first task was to ‘throw a piece of A4 paper in the bin, the most spectacular throw wins’.
It's time for #hometasking no.1!
Post your attempt with the hashtag #hometasking here.
Please keep your clip under one minute long. My favourite ones will be part of a montage on https://t.co/aC7SL94Ic3 soon...
The Taskmaster's decision is final.
Good luck! pic.twitter.com/9lbu5mC6vU

The entries were whittled down, with the best of the 20 second videos being chosen by the Taskmaster himself, Greg Davies.
Within the allotted 30 hours, the challenged amassed some hugely inventive and hilarious entries, from a letter attached to a tortoise to a baby throwing the paper from a Roomba.
The second task was to ‘Turn your bathroom into a venue for a great night out’, while the third was to ‘Make the best dancing elephant’.
Winners for each challenge are announced on twitter, with the best videos made by the public being compiled into a YouTube video.
