Taskmaster Interview with Greg Davies & Alex Horne

Taskmaster Series 10 - Alex Horne, Richard Herring & Model Cow

Taskmaster Series 10 – Alex Horne, Richard Herring & Our Model Cow

You’ve moved the latest series of Taskmaster from Dave to Channel 4. Where are you spending the big bucks?

Alex: I’ve invested in my children’s future… But in terms of the show, reassuringly, you won’t see any extra money on screen. Because we didn’t want to change the show.

We haven’t moved to a bigger house or anything. But there is a massive cow in the Taskmaster garden now.

Greg: That’s a good answer. We bought an incredible fibreglass cow.

Alex: And you can put real milk in it.

Cow on a Zip Wire


However, the fearless bovine did indeed fly the panoramic mile-long ride – albeit strapped into a harness pre-tested for safety by the Zip World team at Penrhyn Quarry, Bethesda.

Organisers were keen to stress it was not an April Fool’s stunt; but a carefully choreographed manoeuvre carried out by the Cows On Tour (COT) team of Welsh farmers.

The bizarre stunt was out to highlight the importance of agriculture.

And the cameras captured all the cow action on the 500ft-high zip line.

The World`s first Zip Wire dairy cow took to the skies above a quarry in Snowdonia, Wales – and reached speeds faster than a skydiver.

The flying cow would not have looked out of place in a James Bond movie set as she was sent flying down the Snowdonia zip wire, in what once was the world’s largest slate quarry.

As a self-confessed adrenaline junkie ; our brave bovine experienced the exhilaration of Velocity 2, the world’s fastest zip line, in the stunning setting of Bethesda’s Penrhyn Quarry.

She was not a real cow, of course, but one of our fibreglass facsimile versions  on a day out from the dairy.
