10 Top MO-ments From Our 2022 BRITs Host, Mo Gilligan

Mo Gilligan's Best Moments Hosting the 2022 BRIT Awards

The BRITs has had a host of hosts over the years. From comedy duo Ant and Dec and pop icon Kylie Minogue to TV treasure Davina McCall and the quirky-humoured Russell Brand (back in his backcombing, tight trouser days) — each bringing their own unique flair to the legendary award ceremony. This year was the turn of brilliant British comedian Mo Gilligan, who stole the show from his predecessor, Jack Whitehall.

With so much talent in the room, the BRITs is a tricky gig to host (I mean, Adele was right there!). But it was clear from the start that Gilligan had got this; we loved to see him soaking up every darn minute of it. And the people of Twitter agree, with callouts such as "Legend!", "Great host", and "Breath of fresh air" for the new host.

The BAFTA Award-winning standup superstar came to fame through social media, where he posted observational-style comedy quips that put him in the spotlight. His hilarious talent was soon picked up by big TV bosses, which earned him his place as the host of several on-air shows and now, the role of host at the BRITs.

On the night, Gilligan rose to the challenge with seeming ease, bringing his natural charm and cheeky British humour to the stage. There wasn't a person he didn't root for, a moment he didn't celebrate, or a perfectly timed "OI OI!" he let go by. In short, we heart Mo, and here's 10 reasons why.
