The Big Breakfast returning to Channel 4 this Summer

AJ Odudu and Mo Gilligan will return as hosts for four weeks this August.


AJ Odudu and Mo Gilligan first hosted The Big Breakfast in September 2021 as part of Channel 4's Black to Front Project and now it's bursting back onto our screens over four weeks on Saturday mornings in August.


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.


Speaking about The Big Breakfast returning, AJ Odudu said "There really is nothing like The Big Breakfast on our screens. 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."


To which Mo Gilligan added "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!"


Channel 4’s Head of Entertainment and Events, Phil Harris said "Mo and AJ both have their own big primetime entertainment shows on Channel 4 with The Lateish Show and The Bridge, so it’s really exciting to be able to harness their combined power and brilliant chemistry to smash into the morning schedules once again"


Produced by Lifted Entertainment, their Creative Director Lee McNicholas added "Bringing The Big Breakfast back with a bang last year was a real joy for all the team working on the show and RTS recognising the programme as best Entertainment show and Mo and AJ as Best Presenters was the icing on the cake. We're so excited to get the team together and bring the show back."


And Channel 4's Senior Commissioning Editor, Vivienne Molokwu said "I genuinely believe that the Black To Front Project unearthed one of the best presenting double acts that telly has seen in sometime in bringing Mo and AJ together for The Big Breakfast 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."
