HE broke up with his Hollyoaks star girlfriend Sophie Wise after deciding to focus on cracking America.

But now it seems British comedian Mo Gilligan has tired of the single life – after signing up to celebrity dating app Raya in a bid to find himself a new woman.

In Mo’s profile, the Masked Singer star describes himself as a comedian working in television and uses a snap  of himself posing in a blue T-shirt which he shared on Instagram at the start of the month.

An insider said: “Mo is a real catch and signed up to Raya after deciding to put himself back out there.

“He was with Sophie for four years and after they split he threw himself into work.

“Mo is hugely popular in the US and he wanted to spend the rest of this year really focusing on raising his profile out there and making a splash.

“Now he feels more ready to put himself out there and has signed up to Raya to meet new people.

“Mo is not only funny but he is good looking too and has everything going for him. He has had a lot of matches but isn’t rushing into anything.”

Mo, who hosted this year’s Brit Awards, revealed earlier this year he was trying to make it in the States after filming a US pilot called That’s My Jam.

Although the show was created for the BBC, the opportunity introduced Mo to a load of American telly executives who couldn’t get enough of him.

His popularity is already starting to increase, as Mo is now being eyed up as James Corden’s replacement as the host of The Late Late Show.

An insider told HOAR earlier this month: “TV execs can’t get enough of Mo.

“They appreciate that, like James when he first started, Mo’s currently not a household name in the US but he’s got the potential to be.

“A shortlist of replacements for James is being drawn up and Mo is at the top of the list.”
