Taskmaster Champion of Champions: Who’s Competing and When Is It Running?

After the end of Taskmaster’s latest series last week, viewers didn’t have to wait long for the more popular Channel 4 show. The Champion of Champions, which sees the previous winners of the series pitted against each other, is just around the corner. Greg Davis and ‘little’ Alex Horn both return with a new batch of tasks for celebrity contestants. In the latest series from Taskmaster, Greg Davies argues that he was related to the Welsh king, Owen Gwynedd, which you can read about here.

In the special episode, the winners of seasons 6–10 return to the Taskmaster stage for a chance to take another title. Interestingly, for most of them it will be the first time on the Channel 4 version of the show. Taskmaster was previously on Dave but in 2020, found a new home on Channel 4.

But which series’ past winners are participating this time around? And when can you catch the first episode of Taskmaster: Champion of Champions? Read on to find out.

Gamble competed in the ninth season of Taskmaster in 2019, defeating David Badial, Joe Brand, Katy Wicks, and Rose Mattafo to become the champion. It remains to be seen how he treats the Champion of Champions, but we have no doubt that whatever he does will be hilarious.
