“You wouldn’t have known that they were work colleagues at all – it’s definitely more than just a professional relationship.
Since then their relationship has seemingly gone from strength to strength, with Matt even referring to Aurora as his “honey” ahead of his appearance on The Late Late Show in November 2017.
Taking to Instagram to share a snap of the pair outside of his dressing room, he gushed: “I’m gonna be on tonight and my honey came to support me.
The couple’s romance angered some social media users. One Twitter troll wrote: “Who cares what you want? You’re a (*curses*) Matt deserves better than you.”
Another said: “Dumb (*curses*) I hope you get hurt and realize that you made a huge mistake.”
A third chimed in: “Hello, please can you stop this rumor and we say if you’re in a couple or not with Matt LeBlanc? Thank u!”
There is no information on her previous relationship or dating a guy. whereas LeBlanc was married to former model Melissa MacKnight. Their married life didn’t go well and separated in 2006 but had welcomed a daughter Marina together. When the rumors about their relationship began, LeBlanc said that he and Mulligan had a strictly professional relationship. However, that didn’t stop the online hate that came Mulligan’s way.
Trolls went after Mulligan in Twitter rants. While some claimed she was not good enough for the Joey Tribbiani in expletive-laden tweets, others demanded that she refute the rumors so Matt wouldn’t be bothered. However, she also got others who were happy about their relationship.

Headhunted for the Isle of Man TT

Aurora’s Isle of Man Relations
Asked about her relationship with the Isle of Man Aurora said:
‘I visited the Island for the 2016 Tourist Trophy races (TT) and was blown away by the unique atmosphere. The riders who are going to the limits to become king of the mountain road course are so approachable by everyone.
The Isle of Man TT still breathes its more than 100-year-old history and is totally locally rooted. It’s part of the landscape, the culture, the DNA of this island, and I always thought you need to show that.
I came back later in 2016 to film for Top Gear, with presenter Matt LeBlanc driving a bright orange Russian Avtoros Shaman, an eight-wheeled all-terrain vehicle, through the ancient capital Castletown and up a nearby mountain, where we staged a mock rescue for some naked ramblers.
This brought me into contact with the Department for Enterprise motorsports team and Simon Crellin, as well as the media sector team and Zoe Guilford.
A Hollywood Investment into a local Company for a Global Event
Now I’m based in Los Angeles, commuting regularly between my home in L.A, my family in Northern Island, and the Isle of Man, helping to build the local company ‘Global Motorsports Ventures’ with Isle of Man talent.
We have a number of exciting projects in development and we are very fortunate that we won’t have to fly in all the staff from abroad as there is incredible talent and companies already on the island.
The Isle of Media, the island’s inward investment agency for the broadcast and film industry, has been tremendously helpful in lining up meetings with our local partners with more to come.
And SES Satellites is operating a whole broadcast infrastructure here, already providing the satellite uplink and streaming connection to broadcaster ITV4 for their Isle of Man TT coverage on television.
I am very excited to be back here for the 100th Isle of Man TT Races and proud to sponsor local rider hero Conor Cummins and the Padgetts racing team.’
