Mo Gilligan has landed a new job on A League of Their Own

The comedian has signed up to take part in the sports panel show as a member of the red team - led by Jamie Redknapp - facing off against the blue team consisting of former footballer Jill Scott and pundit Micah Richards.

Mo said of his new job: "I love this show. I always have. It’s good people and good vibes. When Sky asked if I’d consider joining the team, there was no question in my mind. It was an immediate yes. I’m here for it all!”

An insider added to The Sun newspaper: "Mo is one of the most in-demand stars on telly so it’s a real coup by Sky. He’s been on the show previously and gets some big laughs, so bosses expect more of the same for this year’s series."

The new series of the show launches on Sky Max in October and guests set to join the teams include cricketer Stuart Broad, goalkeeper Mary Earps and comedians Katherine Ryan, Jimmy Carr and Rob Beckett.

The news will be a huge boost to Mo after his involvement in a reboot of beloved TV show 'The Big Breakfast' failed to pan out.

He presented a four episode run last year alongside AJ Odudu following a successful one-off reboot in 2021 as part of Channel 4's Black to Front project, and there had been calls for the pair to return for another stint this summer.

However, the show failed to materialise. A spokesperson said: "Although there are no shows planned for this year The Big Breakfast may well return in the future."

He suffered a further blow when the channel confirmed 'The Big Narstie Show' won't be back for a sixth series. A statement from the network explained: "The decision not to recommission a sixth series of 'The Big Narstie Show' is not part of our response to challenges in the advertising market. "We are immensely proud of the five series we have made of this innovative Bafta-winning show but we have to look carefully at what we commission each year to make sure we continue to innovate and offer viewers a varied range of programming.
