AJ Odudu and Mo Gilligan are reviving 'The Big Breakfast'.

The former 'Strictly Come Dancing' contestant and the comedian, both 34, previously worked together on the show for a one-off special for Channel 4’s Black to Front day of Black programming last September and the are now reuniting up for a four-part series of the iconic show this summer.

AJ said: "There really is nothing like 'The Big Breakfast' on our screens. I loved hosting it last year and I am looking forward to being back at the house to kick off summer weekends on this now award-winning show.”

Mo added: "I love being part of this incredible history making show. The whole team are so spectacular, and I have so much fun working with AJ - she’s one of the best in the business. And now a live summer series? LET’S GO!"

Channel 4 Senior Commissioning Editor Vivenne Molokwu said: "I genuinely believe that the Black To Front Project unearthed one of the best presenting double acts that telly has seen in sometime in bringing Mo and AJ together for 'The Big Breakfast' so it’s absolutely no surprise that we’re reuniting them for more early morning madness and making them a regular staple of our summer schedule."

And Lee McNicholas, Creative Director of Lifted Entertainment, which is producing the show, said: "Bringing the Big Breakfast back with a bang last year was a real joy for all the team working on the show and RTS recognising the programme as best Entertainment show and Mo and AJ as Best Presenters was the icing on the cake. We're so excited to get the team together and bring the show back."

'The Big Breakfast' will return to screens over four Saturdays in August.
