What is Mo Gilligan famous for?

In 2018, he became the host of Channel 4’s The Big Narstie Show.

It was a great success, and the broadcaster went on to give the star his very own show, The Lateish Show, in 2019.

Later on in the same year, he scored his first Netflix special and it was released globally to 190 countries.

In 2020, Mo joined the cast of Celebrity Gogglebox, proving to be a hit with his infectious laugh and cracking sense of humour.

In August of the same year he replaced Ken Jeong on the judging panel of The Masked Singer.

This year saw him take up the seat again for spin-off show The Masked Dancer.

In terms of awards, Mo’s cabinet is growing.

Surely his proudest achievement so far is his BAFTA for The Lateish Show.

He scooped the Entertainment Performance gong for the show at the 2020 prize giving.

And he joked that he has to pay for dinner for his mates now he has a BAFTA!
