Get ready for an evening of pure craziness, as Taskmaster series 11 is officially here.


Hosted by Greg Davies and Alex Horne, the new series will kick off this March, and see a brand new line-up of Taskmaster contestants battling it out in a series of challenges.

Entering the famous Taskmaster house this year is stand-up comedian Jamali Maddix, Not Going Out's Lee Mack, comedian Mike Wozniak, Frayed star and comedienne Sarah Kendall, and actress Charlotte Ritchie.

And it sounds like the tasks are getting even wilder, with Charlotte Ritchie teasing a “frustrating” Taskmaster challenge from the upcoming series.

Speaking exclusively to, she said: "The things that were frustrating were the ones that were more abstract – you do become competitive with yourself and you go, ‘I desperately want to crack this annoying code that Alex has decided’."

Charlotte also revealed what surprised her most about her co-star Lee Mack, saying: "I hadn’t known just how big a fan he was of the show."

Here's everything you need to know about series 11 of Taskmaster.

Greg Davies and 'little' Alex Horne will be returning to host the 11th series of the comedy show.

The pair have presented the last 10 series, with creator Horne giving the celebs celebs their tasks and Taskmaster Davies himself awarding points from his throne.

Last year, the series moved over to Channel 4 from Dave, however, the duo have promised to keep the format pretty much the same with Davies previously telling “It’ll be very much the same show is our plan with Taskmaster, because people seem to like the show and we like doing it the way it is.”

Where is the Taskmaster house?

One of the things viewers have become particularly fascinated by is where the show is filmed.

The iconic Taskmaster house is located in Chiswick, and is a three-bedroom bungalow at Chiswick Bridge, Great Chertsey Rd, London W43U.

The property is a former groundskeepers’ cottage inside a golf course and was previously listed to be rented for £4,117 per month.
