This time Steve Pemberton experiments with G-forces, Joanne McNally rocks a traffic cone, and Sophie Willan creates a unique human-pigeon hybrid. Nick Mohammed finds himself in a peculiar predicament, trapped under a bed, while John Robins pays homage to Little Alex Horne’s hero.

As always, the formidable Taskmaster, Greg Davies, scores their efforts, delivering his trademark blend of wit and whimsy.

Taskmaster airs on Channel 4 at 9.00 pm on Thursday 25 April 2024.
