LATEST: Motor racing boss Flavio Briatore has confirmed he is enjoying a passionate romance with supermodel Heidi Klum.

The Formula One team owner used to date fiery British model Naomi Campbell - but he insists the fact his lovers share the same profession is merely a coincidence.

He explains, "I was really lucky to meet Heidi. My job is stressful, so I prefer my private life to be relaxed and need a woman who I really like - like Heidi."

And Briatore, who is said to have enraged Campbell by taking up with Klum, confesses he is ignorant when it comes to fashion.

He says, "I've never seen a fashion show in my life."
