Daisy May Cooper will be one of the contestants in the biggest series of one of the best-loved gameshows on TV.

The This Country star has been announced as one of the five contestants on the 10th series of Taskmaster, which will air in October for the first time on Channel 4 after nine series on Dave.

Daisy May will join Johnny Vegas, Richard Herring, star of the IT Crowd Katherine Parkinson and Mawaan Rizwan in trying to fulfill the odd tasks set them by stern taskmaster Greg Davies and his assistant, Alex Horne.

The first series of the show to move to Channel 4 will be slightly different to previous seasons because of lockdown.

Though most of the tasks were filmed before the coronavirus crisis, some team tasks were covered under socially-distanced conditions.

Live theatre shows, for the final on-stage task, have been filmed without a studio audience.
