Ronnie Wood’s ex Jo Wood is reportedly smitten with celebrity chef Jameson Stocks, who is 24 years her junior.
Jo, 68, has been on ‘a number of dates’ with Jameson and has reportedly told friends: ‘If you have a connection, age doesn’t come into it’, according to reports.
The romance blossomed between Jo and Jameson, 44, after they started chatting online, sources told The Mirror.
The pair were seen together for the first-time last month at the Prestige And Village county challenge polo event in Essex where Jameson cuddled Jo for the camera, with his arms around her waist.
Speaking last month, Jo said of father-of-two Jameson: ‘He’s lovely. We met at the IKON Awards and he started writing to me on Instagram. Right now we’re just enjoying hanging out.

‘We’ve been to dinner a couple of times but we’re just friends.’
A spokesperson told MailOnline at the time that they are not dating but have been introduced via mutual friends.
Jameson has featured on MasterChef and Cake Boss and when he was 24 became the youngest recipient of The National Restaurant of The Year.
Jo was married to Rolling Stones rocker Ronnie between the years of 1985-2011.
They share two children Leah, 44, and Tyrone, 39. Jo is also mum to another son, Jamie, 48, from her first marriage to clothing entrepreneur Peter Greene.
She also became stepmother to Ronnie’s son Jesse, from his first marriage.
According to reports, Jo has already introduced her daughter Leah to her new beau.
Back in 2021, the former admitted she had turned to a dating agency to seek a third husband and ease her fears of ending up a hermit at her country retreat in Northamptonshire.
The grandmother to ten enlisted the help of the exclusive Sara Eden introduction agency run by Karen Mooney, a former employee of the Buckingham Palace Royal Protection Department.

Jo’s ex husband Rolling Stones rocker Ronnieis 76, – 31 years older than his second wife Sally, who is 45. The couple are proud parents to twins Alice and Gracie, seven.
Sally previously discussed the attraction she felt towards Ronnie and how their romance works so well.
She told The Telegraph: ‘He’s on my level completely. He’s a very nice and caring person. Oh God, don’t use the word “nice”, it’s so boring. He’s very funny, kind and affectionate and welcoming.’
Discussing their age gap, she said: ‘Um, well, I know (the age gap’s) there. And I wish it wasn’t, but it is. I think I had to say: “I can’t do this because of the age”.
‘Or I just had to let it go and take it all on board. At no point, years ago, did I say to myself: “I think I’ll go out with someone twice my age”, but that is what has happened.’
Ronnie has been through a few romantic rollercoasters of his own, but his marriage to Sally has been notably calm and settled.
The guitarist quit smoking after undergoing treatment for lung cancer in 2017 and has been sober since 2010.
Thirteen years ago Jo told Closer magazine: ‘I wouldn’t mind a toyboy, but I can’t date anyone who’s younger than my eldest son Jamie – who’s 35.’
