Nominations for the 2022 BRIT Awards are to be announced in a TV special next month.
The one hour show will air at 5pm GMT ahead of next year’s awards which will take place on February 8 at The O2 in London.
Gilligan replaces Jack Whitehall, who announced recently that he was stepping down from the role after four consecutive years.
