Double BAFTA winning British stand-up comedian Mo Gilligan has been confirmed as the host for the 2022 BRIT Awards.
A true breakout star, with numerous award wins and nominations and sell-out tours, along with an online reach running into multiple millions, Mo Gilligan is unanimously celebrated by fans and industry alike.
Mo said: “It’s an absolute privilege to host the 2022 BRIT Awards. I’m truly honoured to be asked. We’re already in the extensive planning stages and all I can say is, I promise we’re going to give it all we’ve got to create an incredible night for music fans everywhere. Let’s go!”
The BRIT Awards will return for its 42nd show on Tuesday 8 February 2022, and organisers have revealed exciting plans and changes to the show to continue the huge success set by previous years, and to continue its reign as the biggest and most exciting night in the UK music calendar.
Stellar broadcasting talent Clara Amfo and Maya Jama will once again come together to take on presenting duties for the BRITs. They are set to return as a truly formidable force to announce the 2022 Nominations as part of a primetime ITV broadcast ‘The BRITs Are Coming’ in December, and will bring all of the glamour and gossip from the celebrity arrivals as part of the 2022 BRITs Red Carpet show on ITV2 and ITV Hub on the night of the awards.
Both Clara and Maya are very much part of the BRITs family; together they co-hosted the 2021 BRITs Backstage show, with Clara having hosted the BRITs Red Carpet show for the previous four years, whilst Maya had previously hosted the BRITs Red Carpet live stream in 2017.
Clara said: “It is such an honour and pleasure to be part of The BRITs presenting team for 2022. The spirit of celebration from the artists to the viewers is really special and I’m so excited for everyone to see more memories being made on the red carpet and stage in February!”
Maya said: “I am so excited to be back on presenting duties for the BRITs 2022! I remember watching the show growing up and still can’t quite believe I get to be a part of it. ‘The BRITs Are Coming’ TV special on ITV has always been one of my favourite shows, it’s such a big celebration, everyone is on top form and I love seeing so many of my favourite people within the music industry come together for such an incredible night.”
