Mo Gilligan - aka Mo the comedian - is one of the biggest stars in UK comedy. From hosting The 2022 BRIT Awards, to being a panellist on the Hit TV show The Masked Singer, Mo's really made a name for himself on TV.

Outside of TV he is also an accomplished stand-up comedian (his Netflix special just dropped and it's HILARIOUS).

Whilst Mo is a high profile celeb, it seems that his personal life, specifically his relationship with girlfriend Sophie Wise, is something he prefers to keep out of the limelight. Well if you've been left wanting to know a bit more about Sophie you're in the right place.
