“It”s the fact he”s 17!” Alex Gerrard talks about Caroline Flack and Harry Styles and says she”d never date a younger man
Shocked: Alex Gerrard is stunned Caroline Flack would want to date a teenager
It”s been the most talked about celebrity pairing since reports they”d shared a kiss back in October.
But as the fans try and get their head round the alleged relationship between Caroline Flack and Harry Styles, their fellow celebrities are also scratching their heads at the odd coupling.
One of them being Alex Gerrard, who said it wasn”t the age gap that bothered her, but the fact that the One Direction star is only 17.
Speaking to OK! magazine, Gerrard talked about Flack, 32, and Styles, who have hit the headlines recently over their rumoured romance.
She said: “Apparently Caroline Flack is now dating Harry Styles after their kiss a few weeks back.
“She”s 15 years older than him but I don”t think it”s the age gap that makes the relationship alittle odd, it”s the fact he”s 17!
“I could never date a boy that young but maybe Caroline just wants a bit of fun.”
TV presenter Flack and the young pop star were first linked together in October after reports they had kissed at a party after the X Factor show.
Last month they were seen enjoying a cosy dinner together a week before Flack started receiving death threats from diehard One Direction fans, warning her to steer clear of their idol on Twitter.
The pair met while Flack hosted The Xtra Factor and soon sparked more rumours of a romance when Harry refused to confirm or deny the relationship.

He was then later seen leaving Caroline”s home one morning earlier this month.
But despite the backlash, Flack maintains she has done nothing wrong and that people simply “aren”t accepting of big age gaps”.
Defending their relationship in an interview with Now magazine last week, the TV star said: “I feel like I shouldn’t have to worry about what I do. But it’s a social thing that people aren’t accepting of big age gaps.”
“Some people tend to see the negative immediately and that”s what I find really strange.”
“If two people like each other and get on, why does anyone else find a negative in it I know it”s human nature for everyone to gossip. But why say it”s bad No one”s being hurtat all in anyway. “

“What’s hard for me to get my head around is people saying it’s disgusting. I don’t think it is.”
ButHarry has stood by her and been very supportive: “He told me: “Don’t listen to Twitter.’ He became the mature one at that point. I was like: “I know but it’s still quite hurtful.” I try not to say anything back.”
