Series 6, Episode 3 - One Warm Prawn

The five comedians take a nostalgic trip to childhood as they are compelled to taste-test some mystery baby food, among other odd tasks. As usual, they are judged harshly by Taskmaster Greg Davies, who is aided by resident stats geek, Alex Horne. Plus, Russell Howard presents a nightmarish fairy tale and Liza Tarbuck introduces a plastic lizard to a cordless drill.
