With an age gap of 16 years, some corners of the public have raised eyebrows at their relationship but the pop star is not phased by it at all.

'I didn’t even think about the age gap, to be honest. We’re not bothered by it.

'She is someone I have a lot of respect for so when they [the media] were saying, 'Pete's toygirl,' I felt bad for her family.'

The Behind Closed Doors singer has always worn his heart on his sleeve but he is careful about how much he discloses about Emily.

He told the magazine: 'She will be a qualified doctor in 16 months so she has a busy year ahead. But I can see it going somewhere.

'I don’t want to be like, 'Oh, we’re in love' as we've only just started dating and we're not there yet.

'To be honest, I'm scared to say too much. There will come a time when I will say a lot more, but it’s still very early and I don’t want to overdo it.'
