Episode 2: Oatmeal and Death

Summary

Greg Davies sets tasks to a team of celebs comprising Alan Davies, Desiree Burch, Guz Khan, Morgana Robinson and Victoria Coren Mitchell. The contenders compete against each other but, for the first time this series, they must also show off some teamwork as they're faced with a mountain to climb. Morgana investigates suspect doggy bags and Guz slaps a space hopper, while Greg's loyal sidekick Alex Horne offers the intrepid participants moral support

Review

There’s a moment in this chaotic episode where poker ace Victoria Coren Mitchell chips in with a bit of quickfire mental maths as if it were the easiest thing in the world. Like so much of the show, it’s a joy to witness, and VCM’s earlier pitch for why the triple word score from Scrabble that she has brought in for the prize task is “the most awesome square thing” is equally good (“Very, very elegant bulls***,” concedes Greg Davies).

Elsewhere, Coren Mitchell is far from her comfort zone, but that’s the point of Taskmaster, to be a discomfort zone. Trying to taste the food ingredients in various types of unpleasant gloop, for instance: Desiree Burch decides one tastes of “Oatmeal and death”.
