Taskmaster: Christmas special air date confirmed

The winners of series 1 to 5 will compete in a 2-part Taskmaster special airing on Wednesday the 13th and 20th of December...

It’s official, the much-rumoured ‘Champion of Champions’¬†Taskmaster¬†special is happening. It won’t be a full series, but a two-part special featuring Josh Widdicombe, Katherine Ryan, Rob Beckett, Noel Fielding and series 5 winner Bob Mortimer.

The studio recording took place yesterday, Monday the 19th of November, and the first part will air on Dave on Wednesday the 13th of December, with the concluding half going out on Wednesday the 20th of December. Make those diary dates, because it’s pretty much guaranteed to be the funniest thing on this yuletide season.
