Luke confirmed he had split from his art director boyfriend Rafael Olarra in January last year.  

The Beauty and the Beast actor was rumoured to have split from Rafael in October 2020 after they unfollowed one another on Instagram but days later they appeared to patch things up as they were following each other again on the platform.

But speaking to The Times’ Saturday Review, Luke confirmed he was single, saying: ‘It is what it is.’
