'The Big Breakfast' is to return this summer.

The show made a one-off comeback in September as part of Channel 4's Black to Front project - part of the channel's commitment to improve Black representation on-screen and more widely in the TV industry - with comedian Mo Gilligan and broadcaster AJ Odudu at the helm.

The pair will return in August to front the programme for a new series over four weeks on Saturday mornings.

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!"

The show originally ran for a decade from 1992 to 2002 and featured the likes of Chris Evans, Gaby Roslin, Johnny Vaughan, Denise Van Outen and the late Paula Yates.

Lee McNicholas, Creative Director, Lifted Entertainment, 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."
