It comes after Maisie and her beau Max George, 34,  hit back at ‘concern’ over their 13-year age gap in their first joint interview as a couple.

The former soap actress would have been just nine when the The Wanted singer shot to fame and released his first single in 2010. 

Max and Maisie are now addressing their age gap, with the musician insisting ‘it never enters my mind’ and that he ‘looks up to’ Maisie, despite her being his junior. 

The pair went official with their relationship in August and moved in together just weeks after meeting on the Strictly Come Dancing live arena tour. 

Maisie addressed the backlash in this week’s issue of Hello! magazine, telling fans she has ‘never’ noticed the age difference due to the pair being so ‘like-minded’.

She said: ‘People ask me, “Do you notice it?” and I never have. We’re so like-minded. I’ve got friends in their 30s and 40s. You connect with who you connect with.’

Max added: ‘It never enters my mind. Maisie has already done so many things that I’m in awe of – I look up to her.’

Maisie described her romance with the boyband heartthrob as ‘every girl’s dream’.

She added: ‘When I get off a train, Max will be standing on the platform with a bouquet of flowers and I feel like I’m in a movie. It’s every girl’s dream and I’ve found it in Max.’
