The Taskmaster drags Ardal O'Hanlon, Bridget Christie, Chris Ramsey, Judi Love and Sophie Duker into his lair so that he can pit them against each other and watch excitedly as they lose all dignity while fighting to win his golden-head trophy.
All-powerful Taskmaster Greg Davies sets more perplexing and downright extraordinary tasks for Ardal O'Hanlon, Bridget Christie, Chris Ramsey, Judi Love and Sophie Duker. Greg's personal valet Alex Horne diligently notes the facts and figures as Ardal makes some sheep, Chris gets younger, Judi becomes a queen, Sophie wets some teabags and Bridget gets lost in a small field.
Bridget Christie shoves a cuddly toy inside a traffic cone, Sophie Duker does a dinosaur impression, Ardal O'Hanlon is defeated by a robot, Chris Ramsey is impressed with a hose, and Judi Love is confident about everything except marbles.
Alex Horne suffers for his boss as he is pelted with milk and gin. Meanwhile, Bridget Christie has many questions concerning shoes, Judi Love is bewildered by bunting, and Ardal O'Hanlon looks a bit bereft.
Several members of the cast become baffled by things as apparently simple as a high five and a fish tank. Ardal O'Hanlon discovers that a mallet floats, Bridget Christie has a present for the Taskmaster, and Sophie Duker covers some keys in saliva.
Ardal O'Hanlon straddles a mannequin, Chris Ramsey takes a sausage to the nose, Sophie Duker asks a very good question, and Alex Horne displays a mastery of mimicry.
A sound knowledge of food and drink is required as Ardal O'Hanlon indulges in a plant-based snack, and liquids are poured down a giant tube on Sophie Duker's head. Bridget Christie browns a bun, and Chris Ramsey refuses to consume dried spaghetti.
Greg Davies delivers more rough justice as Ardal O'Hanlon sings about leaning on a fence, Judi Love designs some classy headgear, Bridget Christie uses her phone, and Sophie Duker displays genuinely world-class levels of endurance and fortitude.
As the series nears its end, it remains to be seen whether Taskmaster Greg is impressed by Bridget's research into Welsh royalty or Judi poking a shoe from under a curtain.
Ardal O'Hanlon, Bridget Christie, Chris Ramsey, Judi Love and Sophie Duker compete, as the furious race to claim Greg Davies' gleaming golden head trophy reaches its glorious climax in the Taskmaster grand final. Able sidekick and administrator Alex Horne keeps tabs on everything with his usual relentless efficiency.
