Series 8, Episode 8 - Acquatic Sewing Machine

This episode feature sand, beach balls, water and an angler's keepnet. There are also coffee pots, which don't help Joe Thomas, and a trumpet, which doesn't help Lou Sanders.

Further details

Greg Davies and his servile serf Alex Horne do love to be beside the seaside, even when they're not beside the seaside. This perhaps explains why the tasks in this episode feature sand, beach balls, water and an angler's keepnet. There are also coffee pots, which don't help Joe Thomas, and a trumpet, which doesn't help Lou Sanders. Plus one foolhardy player risks the considerable wrath of the unforgiving Taskmaster.
