But now in a new interview, Mike has revealed that he is in a relationship with fellow Emmerdale star Isabel Hodgins.

The actress plays Victoria Sugden in the ITV soap.

Mike will soon be leaving the soap after five years in the role and was asked whether he would miss working with his girlfriend.

He told the Mirror: “Maybe. But I’m not saying who she is.

“It’s no one else’s business.

“Social media for relationships can be detrimental. We’re happy so we don’t need to show off.

“But if we were to break up it would only be worse when the papers get hold of it.”

However, in the same interview he did reveal who his girlfriend was when answering another question.

Asked about how he keeps his body in shape and whether he eats a restricted diet, he gave the game away.

He said: “I keep it controlled. But I had two poptarts for my breakfast. Izzy bought me some.”

And when pushed about mentioning his girlfriend, he added: “Oops. I mean, my good friend Isabel.”

The couple have been rumoured to be dating for years but they both have been very private.

However Mike did post one gushing selfie of the pair last November in tribute to his girlfriend’s birthday.

He posted: “Happy 24th birthday to this little one. Who woulda thought that 5’2 (and a half) could pack so much love, devotion and attitude.

“Thank you for being the most wonderful and caring best friend a boy could ask for. Love you to the moon and back. X.”
