The line-up for Series 14 of Taskmaster has been revealed by the producers.

Dara O Briain, Fern Brady, John Kearns, Munya Chawawa and Sarah Millican are the five comedians set to appear in the next 10-part series.

Channel 4 says: "The BAFTA and National Comedy Award winning Taskmaster reveals the next line-up of comedy's best and bravest souls set to feature in the 14th series of the critically-acclaimed global hit. The news arrives after the most absurd show on television enjoyed the one-off special Taskmaster Champion of Champions on Channel 4 where previous winners from Series 6 to 10 reunited for the ultimate battle of task titans.

"Hoping to follow in their footsteps and become a Taskmaster Champion themselves are: stand-up comedian and television presenter Dara O Briain (Mock The Week, BBC Two), stand-up comedian Fern Brady (Live At The Apollo, BBC One), stand-up, writer, and actor John Kearns (the only comedian to have won both the Edinburgh Comedy Awards for Best Show and best Newcomer), comedian, broadcaster and leading digital creator Munya Chawawa (BAFTA Nominated Race Around Britain, YouTube Originals), and award-winning stand-up comedian and writer Sarah Millican.

"As ever, Greg Davies will be perched on his regal throne as the Taskmaster, while the doting Little Alex Horne scuttles about his master's feet as they judge and adjudicate the new round of hopefuls in the ultimate quest for victory."

The comedians have already filmed their tasks, and the studio recordings took place in May.

Transmission details will be revealed in due course. It is believed likely that Channel 4 will schedule the series for the autumn.
