The 32-year-old comedian stars on the show alongside the likes of Rita Ora, Jonathan Ross and Davina McCall, but Mo thinks he's more like "the person playing at home" than the other panelists.

He said: "I have one guess and I just go for it. I feel like I'm the person playing at home ... I won a competition to be on the panel!"

Mo also admitted that he continues thinking about the show even when he's sat at home.

The comedy star told 'Lorraine': "I realised on day one that you go home and I'm still trying to guess who it is. So I'm at home and I'm like, 'Oh, maybe it is this person? Actually, I'm going to say that name next week'. And then they start singing and you're like, 'Nah, it's not that person'."

Mo is also returning with his award-winning talk show later in the year, and he's keen to have Lorraine Kelly appear on the programme.

The London-born star told the presenter: "[The show will] be back this year, so I'm looking forward to getting back on that. We had a lot of fun last time - you've gotta come on this time, Lorraine."

Meanwhile, Mo previously admitted that risk taking has been one of the keys to his success.

He explained: "I’ve taken a different route to get here, I’ve taken risks, and I’ve believed in my ability – and those have been the marks of my success, I think."

Despite this, Mo conceded that he was nervous about launching his talk show.

He said: "There’s got to be nerves. It’s a big deal. But nerves keep me sharp. Nerves are making me work harder than I’ve ever worked to make sure this succeeds."
