One thing which has always surprised me is that more R1 DJs haven't appeared on taskmaster. I think it's only been Alice Levine but I think almost all of them would be a really good fit. Does anyone know if any DJs were approached or if there's a contract reason why it doesn't happen often? Also who would be your preference to see on the show? I think Scott would be really funny because he'd get really cross if he messed up a task. Also I think Mollie King would be really funny on it

Do find it would be going out of what would be thought of having a comedy panel. Think they try to stick with sitcom actors, stand ups or other comedic personalities think her Levines podcast helps know Dev, Jordon, Mills, James in R1 careers ventured to celebrity formats and think for comedy shows like that think as with QI there seems should be distinction of comedy and celebrity. Feel that it would ruin the essence of Taskmaster as King and Mills yes are funny but not comedians.

I'm not sure, over the years they've had people who are funny but not comedians (eg. Richard osmand) for which I would imagine radio 1 fits the bill. Lots of their presents aren't comedians but are really genuinely funny

Can be funny but you’d be asking for another show thing is Richard Osman has done many comedy panelist shows and has presented Have I Got News For You, Panelist on insert name here, QI, Would I Lie To You, Cats Does Countdown, Sorry I Don’t Have a clue show and Fake News Quiz so bit more experience in realm of television comedy think you’d be asking Horne to change the style of the show and think fans of the show would be underwhelmed when there’s other comedic talent that would deserve to be on the show more.

Jordan and Arielle would be great on it.

Feel like would like to see them going with other comedic talent first e.g Suzi Ruffel, Harriet Kemsley, Fern Brady, Jess Fosterque, Heidi Reagan, Mae Martin, Rees James, Eli’s James, Catherine Bohart, Bobby Mair, Rosie Jones etc first
