Greg Davies’ comedy challenge show, Taskmaster returned on Dave for its fourth series on Tuesday and fans have already dubbed it the best series to date.
Sat alongside trusted sidekick, Alex Horne, Greg Davies welcomed his minions who are tasked with some utterly ridiculous challenges as well as some thought provoking tasks which see them accrue points with the incentive of winning the other contestants belongings – which they present at the beginning of the episode.
Taskmaster producers upped the ante with a new roster of comedians for the fourth series, as Hugh Dennis, Joe Lycett, Lolly Adefope, Mel Giedroyc and Noel Fielding attempted to fell some rubber ducks imaginatively and destroy a cake in the most beautiful way they can think of.
You do wonder what, exactly, each one of them is contemplating – surely they have better things to do? – but fans loved every moment of it and took to social media to express their delight.

Taskmaster is one of the funniest and original shows on television. Never fails to make me laugh.

If you are new to the show and enjoyed it, you can catch up on the previous series by visiting Dave’s on demand service, where comedians including Josh Widdicombe, Romesh Ranganathan, Paul Chowdhry and Al Murray can be seen performing spectacular tasks all for the amusement of his lordship, Greg Davies.
In a previous episode of the series, Josh Widdicombe spent £20 on getting a tattoo, which he still dons today.
Taskmaster series 4 will run for eight episodes and will air every Tuesday at 9pm on Dave.
