They’ll join Derry Girls’ Nicola Coughlan, actor John Hannah and news presenter Krishnan Guru-Murthy on the special episode.
Overseen by Greg Davies and sidekick Alex Horne, Taskmaster sees comedians and celebrities take on a series of bizarre challenges in a bid to win an assortment of weird and wonderful prizes.
An air date for the new special has yet to be confirmed, although we can expect the show to arrive over Christmas.
Rylan will go head to head with dancing expert Shirley inside the iconic Taskmaster house, looking to do the Strictly Come Dancing name proud.
It’s been a strange time for the the presenter recently, recently returning to It Takes Two after self-isolating due to contact with someone who tested positive for coronavirus.
The news comes just a few days after Taskmaster’s Greg revealed the reason he’d never join the cast of Strictly Come Dancing.

Meanwhile, there was an Easter egg on offer for viewers of the latest episode of the comedy series which had fans smiling.
Guests on the show had to solve a puzzle that gave them a phone number to ring in order to progress. The number 07845299563 was broadcast to viewers, who discovered a message from Alex Horne after calling it.
Taskmaster recently found a new audience after moving to Channel 4 earlier this year following nine series on Dave.
The current series of Taskmaster stars Daisy May Cooper, Johnny Vegas, Katherine Parkinson, Mawaan Rizwan and Richard Herring.
Taskmaster continues on Thursdays at 9pm on Channel 4.
