greg davies in Taskmaster

The return of Dave's amusing celebrity challenge comedy sees Greg Davies making sport of Katherine Ryan and Richard Osman among others

How hard can it be to get three yoga balls to the top of a big hill? That's the first of several tasks set tonight by genial, fiendish taskmaster Greg Davies in the opening episode of the second run of his comedy series. The answer is 'pretty damn difficult', something which Joe Wilkinson, Doc Brown, Jon Richardson, Katherine Ryan and Richard Osman soon realise.

For sure, some of the contestants doing light-hearted battle are in serious danger of wearing out their welcome on TV, but even so this is a very funny show, and the mad gleam in Davies' eye as he banters with sidekick Alex Horne makes it all the funnier.
