Mo Gillian is back to host the Brit Awards this weekend and he admitted one big moment from last year’s ceremony made him realised he’d ‘made it’.

The comedian will be at the helm of the huge event on Saturday from The O2 – or is that The Mo2? – in London and he has reflected on his memories of stepping out on stage for the 2022 edition.

Appearing on Friday’s episode of Good Morning Britain, he said: ‘I’m so excited, man, and I’m so proud to do it as well representing myself and my family and my community.

‘But I think most importantly it’s kinda cool because you’ve got all these celebrities that you watched on TV, especially musicians. Last year, my opening link, Adele was laughing at my jokes!

‘Adele’s laughing, I’ve made it! I can go home now!’

Despite the star-studded night, Mo insisted he wasn’t overwhelmed with nerves before last year’s event and they only really kicked in as he started to introduce Ed Sheeran.

He added: ‘When you get to actually do it and there’s 20,000 people – I wasn’t nervous until the camera came around and I had to introduce Ed Sheeran for his big performance.

‘I was like, “Ooh! This is a big deal!” But it’s amazing man, it’s a beautiful night of celebration of music, especially British music, and entertainment!’

When it comes to preparing for such a big job, Mo insisted he has two options to get himself ready and in the zone – and they couldn’t be further apart.

‘There’s two things,’ he laughed. ‘I either play loads of music with my friends and we have an absolute party in our little dressing room, or I just have a nap! It’s one to a hundred!’

He revealed his own pals called him ‘Mr. Saturday Night’, which makes him the ‘perfect person for the job’, while he’s predicting some ‘carnage’ this time round.

He teased: ‘We’ve got the tables back as well, so we don’t know what kind of carnage that could produce.’

Good Morning Britain airs weekdays at 6am on ITV1.
