The insider added that there’s “no bad blood between them” but “sadly their relationship was just not to be”.

ED! has contacted reps for Neil for comment.

Back in October 2021, reports claimed that Neil had asked Sophie to move in with him.

At the time, a source told The Sun: “The speed with which this has all happened mirrors Neil’s lightning-quick feet across the Strictly dance floor.

Neil’s romance came after his split from wife Katya Jones in 2019.

At the time of their split, Neil and Katya said: “We have made the mutual decision to separate.

“We will always love each other, just in a different way as friends.”
