Channel 4 Revives ‘The Big Breakfast’ For Summer With AJ Odudu and Mo Gilligan Hosting
‘The Big Breakfast’ is returning to Channel 4 once again, this time for a run over the Summer, with AJ Odudu and Mo Gilligan as hosts.
Summer Saturdays will get off to a raucous start as Channel 4’s seminal morning entertainment show returns. Over four weeks on Saturday mornings in August, the show will return, produced by Lifted Entertainment, part of ITV Studios.
BAFTA award-winning comedian Mo Gilligan and broadcaster AJ Odudu will reunite as hosts, reprising their RTS award-winning partnership on the show they hosted together for the Black to Front Project one-off special in September last year.
“There really is nothing like The Big Breakfast on our screens,” said AJ Odudu “I loved hosting it last year and I am looking forward to being back at the house to kick off summer weekends on this now award-winning show.”
Mo Gilligan adds “I love being part of this incredible history-making show. The whole team are so spectacular, and I have so much fun working with AJ – she’s one of the best in the business. And now a live summer series? LET’S GO!”
When it comes to breakfast telly, The Big Breakfast defies the rules. With its original riotous spirit and joyful energy, the live two and a half-hour show will see Mo and AJ joined bright and early by brilliant guests to dissect the hot topics of the day.
Mo and AJ have both had success on Channel 4 recently. Mo with ‘The Lateish Show’, and AJ with reality series ‘The Bridge’. Mo also co-hosts ‘The Big Narstie Show’, whilst Mo hosted ‘Married at First Sight: Afters’, both for Channel 4.
”I genuinely believe that the Black To Front Project unearthed one of the best presenting double acts that telly has seen in some time in bringing Mo and AJ together for The Big Breakfast,” said Vivienne Molokwu, Channel 4 by Senior Commissioning Editor. “So it’s absolutely no surprise that we’re reuniting them for more early morning madness and making them a regular staple of our summer schedule.”
‘The Big Breakfast’ has been commissioned for Channel 4 by Senior Commissioning Editor, Vivienne Molokwu with Channel 4’s Head of Entertainment and Events, Phil Harris. The Big Breakfast is produced by Lifted Entertainment, part of ITV Studios. Executive producers for Lifted Entertainment are Luke McFarlane and Rina Dayalji.
‘The Big Breakfast’ will return in August 2022 on Channel 4.
