Channel 4's silliest gameshow Taskmaster is back for a brand new season of hijinks this week as another line-up of comedians enter the famous Chiswick house.


The likes of stand-up Frankie Boyle, Ghosts star Kiell Smith-Bynoe and Canadian comedian Mae Martin make up the cast for season 15 and as always, fans should expect chaos with Jenny Eclair dancing "around a giant golden pineapple in a wedding dress" while Boyle "discovers why cats love balls of string so much".

There's more Taskmaster fun to come in the future, with Channel 4 announcing new spin-off Junior Taskmaster and six more seasons of the original show.

Meanwhile, last year, Alex Horne teased "really funny" episodes to in an exclusive interview.

"We've just finished the next season, I can't tell you who it is but someone is as good or better than [Dara Ó Briain], which is very exciting for me," he said last month in his Big RT Interview.
