Taskmaster's Charlotte Ritchie invents bizarre toilet gadget

Taskmaster contestant Charlotte Ritchie just solved every book reader’s weirdest issue.

Ever fancied reading a good-old classic piece of fiction while on the bog, wary of having to use your hands too much? Well, tonight’s (April 29) episode of the comedy task show provided the perfect workaround.

Behold: Charlotte’s easy-(but-not-really-at-all)-to-use wall book holder.

The Fresh Meat and Call the Midwife star’s pitch to Greg Davies and Alex Horne went something like this: place your book in the holding frame, which keeps it open thanks to two pieces of sellotape attached vertically on either page, and when you need to turn the page, simply use a stick with Blu-Tack on the end to ‘stick, thwack, slot’.

By following these slightly flawed instructions (you’re supposed to be sat on the loo doing your business throughout, remember), bathroom visitors should be able to comfortably see out their light reading – or so says the inventor.

Naturally, over on Twitter, several Taskmaster fans shared their thoughts on Charlotte’s creation and terminology.

If the wall book holder was to become commercially available, would this solve all of your toilet-based reading problems?

Charlotte might be onto something here.

Taskmaster airs on Thursdays at 9pm on Channel 4. A new Champion of Champions miniseries will also premiere in 2021.
