Who is Emmerdale’s Mike Parr dating?
Mike was previously dating his former co-star Isabel Hodgins.
After three years together, the soap stars have called it quits and it looks like Mike is now single.
The Sun reported in March that Mike had been spotted on the dating app Bumble.
He can be seen as “active” on the profile, and looking for a “relationship”.
The Sun says he shared a series of photos on the app, including several of himself and spending time with friends.
Following his high-profile relationship with Isabel, a source told The Sun: “They broke up and felt it was better to be friends.
“He has embarked on his social life and has just been on a guys holiday and she is focused on work, they are both young and want to follow their dreams.
“They had a meaningful relationship and they will remember the good times.”
Isabel plays Victoria in the soap opera and she has been doing it since the age of 12, making her Emmerdale’s longest serving actress.
There has been no hint of a relationship shared on Mike’s Instagram, on which he has 248,000 followers.
It comes after Emmerdale fans hoped Mike’s character Ross Barton would make a comeback after being mentioned on the ITV soap opera earlier this year.
During a celebratory episode, Charity Dingle mentioned Ross’ name as she revealed he was dropping off their son Moses in the village despite never being seen on screen.
Speaking to Mackenzie Boyd, Charity said: “I’ll see you later, yeah? Ross drops Moses off…so we have to do the introductions.”
Soap watchers went wild at the mention of Ross as the character was last seen in the village in 2018.
