Taskmaster season 13 line-up: Meet the new celebrity contestants
Who's taking on Greg this time?
Channel 4's Taskmaster has returned, with a brand new line-up ready to take on some more bizarre challenges.
As usual, they'll face the Taskmaster himself Greg Davies, while producer and presenter Alex Horne is back to oversee all the chaos.
And judging by the first episode, which aired on Thursday 14th April, it's looking like it's going to be a very entertaining competition this season.
The season 13 debut saw one of this year's celeb, Judi Love, break Taskmaster with a surprise discovery during a duck challenge.
Love competes against four other famous faces, who will go head-to-head for the glory of being immortalised as Taskmaster Champion.
Read on for everything you need to know about the Taskmaster season 13 line-up.
Winner of the Hackney Empire New Act of the Year (1994) and Top TV Comedy Newcomer (1995), Ardal O’Hanlon is a celebrated comedian going for the win in Taskmaster season 13.
Known by many for his role as Father Dougal McGuire in Father Ted, O’Hanlon has also starred in the comedy series My Hero, voiced Robbie the Reindeer in three Christmas specials, and appeared in Doctor Who, Skins, and Death in Paradise. He’s also written a novel, The Talk of the Town, and launched the Sky Cat Laugh Comedy Festival in 2015.
Bridget Christie began stand-up in 2004, and has since won the South Bank Sky Arts Award for Best Comedy (2014) and the Marie Claire Women at the Top Awards (2015). Alongside her successful career as a comedian, you might also recognise Christie from appearances on It’s Kevin, Have I Got News for You and Room 101.
She published A Book for Her in 2016, and Netflix also recorded Christie’s Standup for Her, which you can watch for a taste of what’s coming up in Taskmaster season 13.
Chris Ramsey is a regular face on TV: he guest hosts The One Show, hosted Little Mix: The Search in 2020 and played the lead role in Hebburn. Notably, Ramsey also came fourth in Strictly Come Dancing 2019 and has released a stand-up special with Amazon Prime Video called Approval Needed.
Currently, Ramsey co-hosts the Shagged Married Annoyed podcast with his wife Rosie Ramsey, where they answer outrageous questions each week from the public and often get into comical arguments.
Judi Love began her stand-up career in 2011 with her stage debut Laughter Is Healing, and has since hosted the London Critics’ Circle Awards and become a panellist on the ITV show Loose Women.
More recently, you probably recognise Love as one of the finalists on Celebrity MasterChef 2020 and a contestant on Strictly Come Dancing. Let’s hope Love’s wide array of skills are useful for Taskmaster season 13…
Sophie Duker is a stand-up comedian and writer, and was shortlisted for the Funny Women Awards. Probably most well-known for her comedy shows, Duker’s first gig after lockdown was a fundraiser for Reclaim These Streets, but she’s also performed stand-up shows Diet Woke and Venus.
