Leona Lewis has hinted that she's not bothered by the eight-year age difference with her new man Liam Payne.

The X Factor alumni have been dating since September and until now, Leona has been tight-lipped about the romance.

But Leona, 27, reportedly told Look magazine: "If you have a bond with someone age doesn't come into it. I'd date someone younger or older - it doesn't matter to me. Or looks, really - it's all about maturity."

The songstress said: "You'd be surprised how much we have in common. He's great. We see each other when we can."

Leona also admitted One Direction star Liam, 19, paid her lots of compliments, saying: "It's very flattering to get things like that.

"It's cute. I'm having fun and enjoying myself."

She added: "I like someone who can take the reins, who knows what they want and is strong with me. I'm quite fiery, so they have to be able to handle that. But I do like to feel protected."
