THE Masked Singer’s Mo Gilligan has revealed he’s moved in with his Hollyoaks girlfriend after splashing out on five bed London home.
The comedian, 33, will be back on our screens tonight as the third series of The Masked Singer gets underway.
Mo – who is part of the show’s panel – will be seen trying to figure out who the 12 secret celebrities are behind the colourful new characters, and may well have shared his theories with his girlfriend when he got home.
Mo confirmed he was dating former Hollyoaks actress Sophie Wise – who played Carly in the Channel 4 soap in 2015 – in 2018, and now the couple live together in his new home.
Speaking to Metro.co.uk, Mo said of his new digs: “I looked at Surrey, a lot of people in TV move out there, but I work a lot in London so I bought in North London. I bought a five- bedroom semi-detached house.
“I’m the first person in my family to buy a property so it’s a big deal. A lot of my family and friends will be coming over.”
Mo started his house hunt in January last year, and tried Forest Hill but he kept getting recognised.
He said: “[It was] nice but not when you’re looking for a house and want a level of privacy.
“Then I looked in Twickenham and Richmond Park but I didn’t see myself living there.
“I’m fortunate to do TV and comedy but I wanted a bit of privacy as well so I didn’t want to live somewhere where kids would be knocking on my door saying, ‘Tell us who’s on The Masked Singer.’”
Mo plans to do a little renovating and decorating, adding: “Hopefully one day my kids will grow up in this house. Me and my girlfriend won’t be moving for a little while.”
However, when it comes to decor, it sounds like it will be Sophie’s choice as Mo said: “A lot of it will be my girlfriend’s choice. She’s been on Pinterest for years.
“I once bought a rug, she saw it, said it was horrible, and it’s been rolled up ever since.I got it from Ikea.
“It was like an old Persian rug but had ‘Keep Off’ written on the pattern. I thought it was cool, but she hated it.”
The Masked Singer returns tonight at 7pm on ITV.
