Mo Gilligan is said to have split with his girlfriend of four years after spending months away from their shared home in Britain trying to crack America.
‘The Masked Singer’ judge, 34, reportedly broke up with ex-‘Hollyoaks’ actress Sophie Wise, 27, after they moved in together at the start of this year.
It comes after Mo was said to be in huge demand by US television executives after he caught their eye while filming the pilot for new gameshow ‘That’s My Jam’ in Los Angeles.
A source told The Sun on Friday night (02.09.22): “The split is totally amicable and they are still friends despite what’s been a difficult time.
“He is such a hot property in the US right now, as well as still being in demand in Britain, and work has been overwhelming.
“There certainly isn’t any other woman on the scene. They just reached the end of the line.”
Mo and Sophie kept their relationship relatively under the radar, and have not been pictured in public together despite the presenter and comedian confirming in 2018 they were dating.
They were already in a relationship before he started becoming a household name after getting his breaking on Channel 4’s ‘The Big Narstie Show’ in 2018, then fronting his ‘The Lateish Show’ on the network.
His work in America recently became such a big part of his career he has had to step down from his role as one of the panellists on ITV’s ‘The Masked Dancer’.
