First New USA Passport - can I travel to the UK?

I am a UK citizen and my boyfriend is American. He has just received his first ever passport with the intention of flying over to visit me at Christmas and although I have researched that he doesn't need a Visa, he has been told (by a friend!!) that he may not be allowed entry to the UK as his passport will be LESS than 6 months old?
I know that there are some restrictions for certain countries if the passport is due to expire within six months, but I've never heard of anything like this before - is this true or is it just as ridiculous as I suspect?
I have visited him three times now but this is his first time out of the USA (and he's 44, bless!) so he is a little nervous about being refused entry.
Your advice would be greatly appreciated.
