Comic Mo Gilligan relives moment he got ‘stuck’ on a £1400 Peloton

Comedian Mo Gilligan has us in fits of giggles on Celebrity Gogglebox and The Masked Singer, and it’s no different when we’re interviewing him.

Recalling a hilarious blunder on a Peloton bike, the 34 year old told us how he got “stuck” on the £1400 piece of exercise equipment after attempting to emulate his idol Beyoncé.

The star revealed: “I bought it in the pandemic. I thought at the time: ‘Channel 4 is paying alright, I need to get one of these bikes.’ I got the bike and the wait for it was insane, like 15 weeks.

“Anyway, I went on eBay and bought it. I was so gassed [excited] to the point I got dressed up to go on it. I wanted to be like Beyoncé and cycle.

“I’m in the gear with Nike pro-shorts on but I did not have the Peloton shoes that click on. I wanted the full experience, and I bought the shoes which took three to five days to deliver.”

But, as Mo explains, it didn’t quite go to plan, even when his footwear did arrive.

He continues: “My shoes came and I was ready to do the Beyoncé ride. I love Beyoncé.

“I think she is the best artist of this decade. I have seen her three times. I was ready to join the beehive. But when I was ready to go the shoes were stuck in the bike.

“I thought everyone could see me as there is a camera watching you. So I got off and there was a class starting and I was stuck.

"I am ducking in my own house away from the camera and the video is not even live. I have not told this story before.”

Mo’s career has gone from strength to strength over the last few years, and he is set to launch a brand new show on BBC One very soon.

The star is hosting the UK version of That’s My Jam, a programme that’s based on the popular musical segments from US chat show The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.

Mo’s new series was filmed entirely in Hollywood and follows the original format, so we’ll see a similar mix of celebrities battling it out in singing rounds and taking part in trivia-based games, as well as musical performances.

It will also feature signature games from the original Stateside version including Launch The Mic, Air Guitar, Don’t Drop The Beat and Slay It, Don’t Spray It.

That’s My Jam will be coming to BBC One soon
