Taskmaster Champion Of Champions saw the previous winners, from series six to 10, return for the ultimate battle.

Bafta-winning Taskmaster was created by Horne, 43, and first aired on UKTV’s Dave before moving to Channel 4 in 2019.

After the move, the show achieved its best performance on record with its Channel 4 launch, reaching 3.9 million consolidated views.

During the Covid-19 pandemic, Horne hosted #HomeTasking, which saw a series of tasks for the public to complete in their own homes – a selection of which were posted on the show’s YouTube channel and judged by Davies.

A date for the new series of Taskmaster is yet to be confirmed.
