As the New Year unfolds, the formidable Taskmaster Greg Davies and his devoted assistant Little Alex Horne extend a warm welcome to five renowned personalities from diverse corners of the entertainment world. They are invited to take on a series of absurd challenges in the latest episode of the special event, ‘Taskmaster’s New Year Treat,’ set to be broadcast on Channel 4 during the festive season. This unconventional group of five individuals shares a common goal – to impress the Taskmaster by tackling tasks in ways they have never attempted before.
The brave participants gearing up for the most surreal and competitive television contest include Deborah Meaden, an entrepreneur and star of Dragon’s Den; Kojey Radical, a music artist nominated for the Mercury Prize and MOBO Award; Lenny Rush, a BAFTA-winning actor; Steve Backshall, a TV presenter, adventurer, author, and wildlife expert; and Zoe Ball, a radio and television presenter. Each of them is eager to earn points, vie for the Taskmaster’s momentary approval, and avoid sharp criticism, all in pursuit of claiming Greg’s distinctive Trophy of Eyebrows.
