Morgan is one of those celebrities who keeps his personal life away from the media. He rarely uses social media. Because of which information regarding his dating status remains concealed.
The 35-years-old has also never shared his relationship status in public during interviews or events. Therefore, it is not sure if the Benjamin actor is single, dating, or married.
But his name has been frequently linked with his Merlin co-stars Katie Mcgrath and Bradley James.

Morgan played the character of Merlin, while English actor Bradley James portrayed Arthur Pendragon in the show. Their formidable on-screen chemistry and strong friendship off the screen started their dating rumors.
However, they are only friends in reality.
They are not even in touch with each other frequently. In March 2020, James took to his Instagram Live to answer if he was still in touch with his Merlin co-stars. He disclosed that he wasn't really in touch with Morgan though he sometimes goes to his plays on stage.
