How does the show work?

Well, we will let Alex Horne explain. “We set tasks to five comedians and they come to this house, one of the Taskmaster’s many houses. And they open up a task one by one and do it. And that’s it. And then we come to the studio and see how they’ve done,” he said once on Sunday Brunch.

He added: “It’s stuff to give them scope to be funny. And there’s no script and no retakes. So it’s just funny people being funny.”

What tasks are in series 10?

Well we know one task involves egg-transporting and that Johnny Vegas is rather good at it!
