Taskmaster. Alex Horne
This time, in an unexpected interpretation of a task, Bridget Christie shoves a cuddly toy inside a traffic cone, to create a scene that almost reduces Little Alex Horne to tears. Taskmaster Greg Davies is surprisingly sympathetic to his PA's distress but is less forgiving of Sophie Duker's dinosaur impression. Meanwhile, Ardal O'Hanlon is defeated by a robot, Chris Ramsey is impressed with a hose, and Judi Love is confident about everything except marbles.
