The comedians are teaming up once more!

Taskmaster stars Katherine Ryan and Joe Wilkinson are making a brand new travel series. Entitled Joe and Katherine's Bargain Holidays, the new Channel 4 show will feature the two comedians exploring cheap holidays in the UK and beyond.

The series will be made up of six episodes, with each one hung around a different bargain holiday. Revealed themes so far include a couple's retreat, a girls' weekend away, and a family trip to a seaside town.

In announcing the new venture for the pair, Wilkinson said that his favourite three words were "bargain", "holiday", and "voucher", adding: "This series gets under the skin of all three."

Ryan joked in response: "Three of my favourite words are 'cocktails', 'Maldives', and 'helicopter'. This series is really going to test my friendship with Joe."

The pair, who've never made a travel show before, featured in season two of Channel 4's Taskmaster.

Ryan won that series with a total of 94 points while Wilkinson finished last with 69 points.

'Taskmaster' airs on Channel 4. A new series, it's 14th, is due this autumn.
