The taskmaster and their assistant have been revealed for the children’s version of the popular comedy game show, Junior Taskmaster. The spin-off was announced earlier this year, where a group of children aged nine to 11 will take on bizarre tasks.
It was confirmed on Tuesday (May 16) that BAFTA-nominee Rose Matafeo and Mike Wozniak will be the hosts, hoping to emulate Greg Davies and Alex Horne who currently front the main Taskmaster show on Channel 4
Matafeo will assume the role of Davies in the spin-off as the ‘Junior Taskmaster’ whilst Wozniak will be her assistant.
Rose Matafeo, the Junior Taskmaster, said: "To be appointed as Junior Taskmaster is one of the greatest honours of my already wildly successful career. I am greatly looking forward to the power going to my head."
Mike Wozniak, the Junior Taskmaster’s Assistant, added: "All I ever wanted to be when I grew up was a Little Alex Horne (or a regional manager for a major provider of motorway service stations) so this is literally a dream come true.
"I hereby vow to do my utmost to hold the office of Junior Taskmaster’s Assistant in the spirit of the original Little Alex Horne: with his courage, his grit and his dignity."
As well as the upcoming Junior Taskmaster, the adult version, which is currently airing its 15th season on Channel 4 has been renewed for six more seasons. This series that is already underway features Frankie Boyle, Ivo Graham, Jenny Eclair, Mae Martin and Kiell Smith-Bynoe.
