Fresh from a BAFTA win, The Lateish Show With Mo Gilligan returns for series 3 – plus, where to watch more Mo

By Laura Rutkowski, Senior Staff Writer

Mo Gilligan is on a roll. The comedian has won a BAFTA every year since 2020. At this year’s 2022 Virgin Media British Academy Television Awards, he took home the Comedy Entertainment Programme Award for The Lateish Show With Mo Gilligan. The golden gong now sits rather nicely next to 2020’s Entertainment Performance Award for the same show and 2021’s Comedy Entertainment Programme Award for The Big Narstie Show


Prepare to see a lot more of Mo, who has your Friday night entertainment sorted with banter, sketches and music in The Lateish Show With Mo Gilligan. To kick off the third series, he’s joined by actor and musician Ashley Walters (Top Boy), comedian Judi Love and dancehall legend Sean Paul. Mo’s own trademark characters will also make an appearance, of course.

Games include Nursery Grimes, where guests must sing a nursery rhyme in the style of a famous track, and Reply or Deny, where two audience members ask the celebs a question – one they choose to reply to and one they deny.


As for Mo’s growing awards collection, he’s gonna need somewhere to put them all, but IKEA hit him up after the Virgin Media BAFTA TV Awards and has already got him covered…

Before you stay up late… ish (well, 10pm) to catch the new series of The Lateish Show With Mo Gilligan, here’s where you can watch more Mo!


Live At The Apollo

London’s Hammersmith Apollo hosts comedy legends as well as emerging talent. It’s Mo’s name in lights in series 14, episode 2, where he has the audience in stiches.


The Masked Singer

If you’re unfamiliar with the incredibly fun yet frustrating concept, it’s a singing competition/guessing game where celebrities don elaborate, over-the-top costumes to hide their true identities… until they’re unmasked. Mo joined as a panellist in series 2, as well as in follow-up sister series The Masked Dancer (find series 1 in Apps & Games > ITV Hub).


Mo Gilligan’s All Star Happy Hour

During lockdown, Mo was determined to keep us all laughing. In a new role as quizmaster, he hosted this show from his own house, bringing together members of the public and famous faces to play games and provide the entertainment we so desperately needed.

Mo Gilligan: Momentum

Find it in Apps & Games > Netflix

Mo’s debut stand-up special was shot at the Hackney Empire and features a full live band, who accompany Mo’s impromptu singing, and set the scene for jokes that take place in locations like a nightclub or a wedding venue. There’s plenty of dancing too in this energetic and eclectic set.


Mo Gilligan: There’s Mo To Life

Find it in Apps & Games > Netflix

Although Mo’s celebrity status has only continued to rise over the years, his stand-up paints him as a pretty normal guy, and it’s precisely this relatability that wins audiences over time and time again. He does dabble in showbiz stories, which he recognises as outrageous, but he mainly delivers universal material and instantly recognisable scenarios.


The Great Celebrity Bake Off For Stand Up To Cancer

Find series 1-5 in Apps & Games > All 4

Catch Mo in series 3, where he turns out to be a dab hand at making jam, while his guilty pleasure trainer cake is more of a train wreck. It’s an A for effort as he bakes alongside Carol Vorderman, Kelly Brook and Rob Rinder.
