Following what was largely a disappointing Inbetweeners reunion earlier this year, we now have a small piece of redemption.
Simon (Joe Thomas) and Mr. Gilbert (Greg Davies) will be reunited on the new series of Taskmaster. The show, which is broadcast on Dave, challenges the wit and wisdom of five comedians as they are put to the test in ridiculous tasks.
The comedy show is hosted by Greg Davies and Joe Thomas is a contestant, meaning Mr. Gilbert can torment Simon once more.

The other contestants of the show include Iain Stirling (voice of Love Island), Lou Sanders, Paul Sinha from The Chase and Sian Gibson.
Fans are understandably excited to see Joe Thomas taking part.

@taskmaster season 8 must have Greg going full Mr Gilbert on Joe Thomas. Otherwise what’s the point
