UKTV’s Dave channel has given the greenlight to Taskmaster: Champion Of Champions, a two-part special that will bring back the winners of the show’s first five seasons. It will air on the channel next month.
All five previous winners – Josh Widdicombe, Katherine Ryan, Noel Fielding, Rob Beckett and Bob Mortimer – will face confounding new assignments in the fight to become the ultimate Taskmaster champion. Greg Davies and Alex Horne will also return.
The two-part special was ordered by UKTV’s Director of Commissioning Richard Watsham and Dave General Manager Steve North, and commissioned by Deputy Director of Commissioning Hilary Rosen. Avalon is producing, with Alex Horne, Richard Allen-Turner, Rob Aslett, James Taylor, Jon Thoday, Andy Devonshire and Hilary Rosen serve as executive producers.
