EXCLUSIVE: Matt LeBlanc, 54, put on hold six-year relationship with Top Gear producer Aurora Mulligan, 37, ‘over a year ago’ as star confirms breakup after romance ‘played out’

Matt Leblanc’s six-year relationship with Top Gear producer Aurora Mulligan came to an end in 2020, long before their split was publicly announced.

The 54-year-old former Friends star worked with TV producer Aurora, 37, on the long-running BBC show after being called on to revive his faltering fortune in 2016 before leaving three years later.

Sources have since confirmed that the couple quietly drew a line under the relationship a few months ago.

A rep told MailOnline: “They haven’t been together in over a year.”

End of the road: Matt LeBlanc, 54, has reportedly split from his British partner Aurora Mulligan, 37, after nearly six years of being together.

A separate source told The Sun: “Matt and Aurora’s relationship has run its course. Everything is over. It’s a huge shame, and Matt took the news as hard as anyone else.

“He and Aurora fell in love on Top Gear and despite the rather big age difference, they were a really great couple.

“But when he announced he was leaving Top Gear and taking on other jobs, it was hard for them. He mainly lives in Los Angeles and traveled extensively while Aurora was working in the UK.”

The couple first bonded in May 2016, when onlookers said they looked “besotted” when they visited the Hickstead Derby in West Sussex in June of that year.

They walked the red carpet together at the 2017 New York Film Festival and first appeared as an official couple at the UK launch of series 25 of Top Gear in 2018.

The pretty brunette was born in County Fermanagh, Northern Ireland. She studied politics, political science and administration at the University of Liverpool before embarking on a successful career in television.

After working for ITV and Channel 5, she eventually joined the BBC in July 2015 as an assistant producer on Top Gear, shortly after the departure of former presenter Jeremy Clarkson.

Aurora is believed to have met Matt in early 2016, shortly before he was announced as one of the show’s new producers in February.

She was not the first European woman to come to his attention; he was married to British model Melissa McKnight for three years, with whom he has a daughter, Marina.
