So now you've heard the news. Liam Payne and Cheryl Fernandez-Versini are officially an item, despite one being 22 and the other 32 (no prizes for guessing which is which).
In fact, the age difference is such that this is what the pair looked like when they first met:

Sorry, we got distracted. This isn't The X Factor: we're not here to judge, no. Ten years is actually barely an age difference at all, especially compared to some old-men-young-women celeb couples.
Still, a hell of a lot can happen in ten years. To prove it, here are some things with the same age gap as Lieryl. Cheram? Whatever their couple's name is. Prepare to be, if not amazed, at least mildly rattled.
