They may travel in different circles, but Peter Andre has come to the defence of Hollywood heartthrob Leonardo DiCaprio.
With the Mysterious Girl singer, 50, comparing the actor’s age-gap romances to his own marriage to wife Emily MacDonagh, 33 – declaring ‘age doesn’t matter’.
It comes after the Hollywood actor, 48, hit back at claims that he was dating Love Island’s Maya Jama, 28, after they were introduced by mutual friends.
Leo denied the new string of rumours after a source told the The Sun that the Titanic star- who has also been linked to Gigi Hadid, 27 – and the British beauty ‘are in regular contact and have been on a string of dates’.
Taking to his OK! column Peter wrote: ‘Although [Maya Jama is] 28, 20 years his junior, you can’t help but admit that Leo looks awesome,’
‘As you all know, Emily and I have been together for nearly 11 years and have known each other for 13 years’.
‘Even though she is younger than me, I don’t think age matters as we are so happy together!’.

He revealed that the ‘whole family’ will be making the trip down under.
Writing in his new! magazine column, Peter said: ‘If it all goes to plan, it’ll be December and we’ll all be going to Oz as a family.
‘We want to get out there as soon as we can and stay for as long as possible, but it’s tricky with the kids’ school.’
‘They have different timings, which makes it complicated.’
On Monday Maya was pictured wearing a gold ‘Leo’ further fuelling romance rumours with the actor – but not all was as it seemed.
