Series 16, Episode 8: Featuring Rugby Union star Joe Marler, presenter Kelly Somers, comedian Joel Dommett, professional gadabouts David Walliams and Jonathan Ross, and - to make sure he's doing his job properly - Romesh's mum Shanthi Ranganathan. This week the teams take part in a pillow fight, have a go on a pop cycle, and play a game of Danger Dodgeball.
Series 12, Episode 3: The perfect Taskmaster contestant should be as versatile as an egg, able to turn their hand to anything from construction to choreography. This is the contestant that Greg Davies dreams of, yet instead, in this episode, he gets Victoria Coren Mitchell drawing an exploding cat, Alan Davies hurting himself with a rubber band and Desiree Burch doing something inexplicable when faced with sand. Alex Horne provides statistical analysis.
Series 3, Episode 8: Jo Brand joins Joe as he goes on a mission to make Britain's beaches more eco-friendly by banning cheap polystyrene bodyboards. Plus, comedian Joanne McNally investigates diet fads and the team explores online shopping fraud loopholes. As usual, tech specialist Mark Silcox offers support to the host's quests.
Series 1, Episode 1: This first episode will include comedy from Paul McCaffrey, who has recently appeared on major UK tours; Nina Gilligan, who's often described as a bolshier Mrs Merton; and Aaron Simmonds, a former BBC New Comedy Award finalist and winner of Jewish Comedian of the Year.
Series 1, Episode 1: Alex is desperate to find someone to share his life with, but too scared to do anything about it. A film obsessive, he works the night shift at an isolated petrol station on the outskirts of a two-bit town. Awkward, and with no real friends to speak of, he confides in his only 'colleague' - a smiley-faced vacuum cleaner named Keith, whose voice only Alex can hear.
