While Mo is active on social media, he has not shared any photos of himself and Sophie, so it's believed that the couple prefers to keep their relationship out of the spotlight, but it's believed that the couple live together in North London.

Mo purchased a five-bedroom semi-detached house North of the Thames earlier this year, and speaking about his new digs, he revealed that Sophie was keen to start decorating the place.

He told The Sun: "A lot of [the interior decoration] 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."
