Pete's not bothered about their 16-year age gap, but he didn't like it when the press started labelling medical student Emily a "toygirl".

He tells New! magazine: "She is someone I have a lot of respect for so when they were saying, 'Pete's toygirl', I felt bad for her family.

"I rang Dr Ru and he said, 'I know it's not you' but I wanted him to know people will realise Emily is a classy girl."

Pete seems smitten with brunette Emily, though he insists they're not officially boyfriend and girlfriend just yet.

He's known Emily's family for a while and is confident that they're happy about the pair's blossoming romance.

He added: "I don't want to speak for them but I would like to think that both our families absolutely adore each other."
