Dara O Briain, Fern Brady, John Kearns, Munya Chawawa, and Sarah Millican are set to take part in the next series of ‘Taskmaster’.

The Channel 4 show - presented by Greg Davies and Little Alex Horne - is coming back to screens for a 14th season and will see five more comics compete to become the Taskmaster Champion just two weeks after the conclusion of the last season, which saw stand-up comedian Sophie Duker take the title.

It also follows the crowning of Richard Herring - who competed alongside Lou Sanders, Ed Gamble, Kerry Godliman, and Liza Tarbuck - as the 2022 Champion of Champions on Thursday (23.06.22).

The new series will see Dara - who is best known as host of the BBC Two comedy news panel show ‘Mock The Week’ - revel in the mischief.

The 50-year-old star will compete alongside internet comedy superstar Munya - who has gained a cult following for his topical parody songs - for the crown, as well as Fern, Sarah, and John.

The show’s official Twitter account posted: “See you soon, @daraobriain, @FernBrady, John Kearns (@johnsfurcoat), @munyachawawa @SarahMillican75. #Taskmaster.”

They also tweeted a teaser video of the cast hula dancing, writing: “#Taskmaster will return for Series 14… Coming soon.”

The series - which is executive produced by Alex Horne, Richard Allen-Turner, Rob Aslett, James Taylor, Jon Thoday and Andy Devonshire - will debut at as-yet-unannounced date. It was commissioned by Phil Harris, the channel’s Head of Entertainment and Tom Beck, the Head of Live Events.
