It was recently rumored that Mo Gilligan could replace James Corden as the host of The late late show in the U.S.
Talk about those rumors with Good morning Great Britain duo Adil Ray and Charlotte Hawkins in October, Mo said vaguely, “It’s nice speculation. To be linked to that job is really cool.”
However, he was quick to turn down speech that he would host the ITV2 revival of Big Brother.
“I’d love to do that, but no, unfortunately I’m not going to. I’m too busy. It’s a great show. I’m glad they’re doing it,” he said.
