BAFTA TV AWARDS 2022: Mo Gilligan reveals his mental health 'wasn't in the best place'

Mo Gilligan revealed his mental health ‘wasn’t in the best place’ as he accepted the award for Best Comedy Entertainment Programme at the BAFTA TV Awards on Sunday night. 

The Lateish Show, of which the comedian is at the helm, beat The Graham Norton Show, Race Around Britain and The Rangnation during the ceremony at London‘s Festival Hall, with Mo, 34, lauding Channel 4 during his acceptance speech. 

‘Oh s**t I’m so nervous. I have to big up Channel 4. In 2017 when I got offered a show, my mental health wasn’t in the best place,’ he reflected.

‘Channel 4 brought me into this big building. They rusted me and let me be myself and bring black boy joy to the screens,’ he added.

The Lateish Show first aired on Channel 4 in July 2019 and has run for two series. 

The show drew inspiration from the 1990s entertainment show TFI Friday and includes a house band, a live audience and comedy sketches.

The award-winning show had been commissioned for six episodes back in 2018, with Mo previously saying how it had been under development for two years prior to its announcement. 

Mo, known for his observational comedy, had his first bout of presenting experience with rapper Big Narstie on his eponymous show.  

Elsewhere, Ant and Dec picked up the Best Entertainment Show gong for Saturday Night Takeaway at this year’s BAFTA Television Awards.

Presented by Olivia Colman – the Geordie duo, both 46, were delighted to scoop the first award of the night, which marked the fourth time they have won in the category and the eight time they have been nominated in it.

The awards recognise and celebrate the very best in television craft and television programmes broadcast in the UK in 2021 and are back to having a full live audience after the pandemic.  

Ant and Dec said in their acceptance speech: ‘Thanks so much, what a great start to the night, we were convinced we wouldn’t get it this year so this is wonderful.

‘We have to thanks the fantastic production team so a round of applause for all of you too!’
