John Cleese on The Graham Norton ShowMonty Python legend John Cleese has spoken of a new romance while on The Graham Norton Show - and it's with a friend of his daughter who is 31 years his junior.

The 70-year-old Fawlty Towers star apparently started dating 39-year-old Jennifer Wade at the end of last year and Cleese admitted he was 'loved up' although the age difference was 'inappropriate'.

"I've found someone who is very age inappropriate." said Cleese. "Jenny is 39 - making it 31 years' difference - which is a disgrace. We've only been together three or four months - but she is the most... playful creature."

The British star endured a bitter divorce battle last year and was ordered to hand his third wife Alyce Faye Eichelberger £13 million in cash and assets - plus £612,000 a year for the next seven years. As a result, Cleese was forced to return to the theatre for the first time in four years to help fund the costly split.
