Masterminded by comedian Alex Horne, Taskmaster sees the contestants compete over 10 episodes to impress titular judge Greg Davies as they complete a series of tasks.

But they’re no ordinary tasks – ranging from writing a bedtime story for grown-ups to cheering up a miserable traffic warden.

The start date was announced on social media on Wednesday, March 30 via a virtual Easter egg hunt on the Taskmaster social media accounts.

Chris Ramsey will take part in the 13th series of Taskmaster, starting in April on Channel 4.

*Taskmaster will return to Channel Four at 9pm on Thursday, April 14
