While Phoebe is the daughter of Coronation Street actress Sally Dynevor, 57, who plays Sally Webster, and she first appeared on TV at the age of 14 with roles on Snatch and later Waterloo Road.

Pete was in a relationship with British actress Kate Beckinsale, 47, in 2019 and laughed at their 20-year age difference.

He said, ‘It doesn’t really bother us. But again, I am new to this.

Pete also romanced Once Upon A Time In Hollywood actress Margaret Qualley, 26, daughter of Four Weddings and a Funeral’s Andie MacDowell, and last year dated Cindy Crawford’s daughter Kaia Gerber, 19.
