Channel 4 has renewed the hit comedy series The Lateish Show with Mo Gilligan for two more seasons.

The late night chat show, hosted and co-produced by comedian Mo Gilligan first aired in 2019 and is set to premiere its third season in May.

The programme includes a house band, live audiences, comedy sketches as well as interviews and games with the celebrity guests, inspired by the 1990s entertainment show TFI Friday.

Who is Mo Gilligan?

Mosiah Gilligan, known as Mo, is a stand-up comedian recognised for his observational comedy.

Audiences may recognise Mo from his appearances on shows like Celebrity Gogglebox, the Big Narstie Show and The Masked Singer panel, as well as hosting this year’s BRIT Awards.

The 34-year-old comedian turned TV presenter and producer, was born in Lambeth, London and has a net worth of £18 million, according to Entertainment Daily.

He made a name for himself through social media when rapper Drake quoted some of his jokes; and now the comedian has received two BAFTAs and a handful of Royal Television awards, following sold-out UK comedy tours and a book release.

Mo is in a relationship with actress Sophie Wise who used to play Carly Bradley in Hollyoaks - the couple moved in together in January.

What have Mo said about the upcoming seasons?

Speaking to Variety, Mo was very excited for the new series and upcoming opportunities with Channel 4.

He said: “I am absolutely thrilled that Channel 4 have given us such an incredible commissioning commitment.

“The whole team is very proud of Lateish and through this long-term partnership we’ll continue to work hard to make the very best show we can, whilst also creating more opportunities behind the camera for those underrepresented groups.”

As well as the TV show being given the green light for two more seasons, Gilligan’s The Lateish Accelerator programme with Channel 4 and Expectation which provides paid production roles for underrepresented groups, will be extended too.
