Taskmaster Series 11 is heading to C4 very soon, and will see five more funny people attempting to prove their worth to Taskmaster Greg Davies by completing the challenges set by his ingenious assistant, Alex Horne.

Previous contestants on the show have included Johnny Vegas, Katherine Ryan, Rob Beckett, Jo Brand, David Baddiel and Mel Giedroyc, to name but a handful. Some of them proved to be more than a match for Alex's tasks — while some, to be perfectly honest, did not.

Here's everything you need to know about the show's newest series...

Taskmaster Series 11 release date

Taskmaster Season 11 starts at 9pm on March 18 on Channel 4.

The line-up of stars competing for the chance to win a bronzed recreation of Greg's head (as well as whatever miscellaneous tat their fellow contestants bring in for each week's prize task) has been confirmed. They are: Ghosts and Dead Pixels star Charlotte Ritchie, stand-up star Jamali Maddix, comedian and Not Going Out star Lee Mack, Man Down star and comedian Mike Wozniak, and star of Sky One's Frayed, comedian Sarah Kendall.

Is there a trailer for Taskmaster series 11?

Yes! A suitably ridiculous trailer was released earlier in March. It styles Greg Davies as a horrible tyrant and his sidekick Alex Horne as his bumbling court jester.

Sadly, the hilariously over-the-top promo doesn't give us many clues at what we can expect to see from the newest series, save for a couple of hints at possible tasks.

We got more hints from the cast reveal trailer that dropped back in December. In that teaser, we saw the new celebs attempting to transport stacks of plates on less-than-efficient transport. It's safe to say we can expect the new series to be just as stupid as the last!

Is there any more Taskmaster news?

Yes! As well as the upcoming 11th series, C4 has confirmed that Taskmaster will be airing a second Champion Of Champions special where the winners from series six to series 10 will be returning to compete against the best of the best. If you need a reminder, those winners are: Liza Tarbuck, Kerry Godliman, Lou Sanders, Ed Gamble and the recently-crowned Richard Herring.

The release date for the second Champion of Champions special still hasn't been confirmed, but expect it later this year!
