Orlando Bloom appears to have scored the seal of approval from Miranda Kerr's father after bonding over motorbikes. The actor spent a day zooming around Sydney's streets with Mr Kerr in May, which has since earned him some much-needed brownie points following the couple's rumoured split.

"He's a nice guy," Mr Kerr told Patty Huntington of Frockwriter. "[He is a] pretty sort of down to earth guy. I wouldn't call him a hellraiser." Erm... good to know?!
