And this weekend it was claimed that Cheryl Fernandez-Versini, now 32, and One Direction's Liam Payne, now 22, have secretly started dating.

Not only did he change his picture to one of them together as soon as the news broke, but he also changed his bio to simply say "happy". 💗

Also please note that Liam has no top on in the picture, which suggests it's an intimate photo.

The pair are said to have started dating in December, when Cheryl reportedly split from her husband Jean-Bernard, and shortly after Liam broke up with his longterm girlfriend Sophia.

Here's the moment Cheryl met Liam during his first audition for The X Factor when he was 14.

She described him as "cute" and told him: "I think you've got charisma, you know, you give us that little cheeky wink."

They then met again two years later, when Liam auditioned for the second time and eventually went on to join One Direction.

The pair have since got to know each other a lot better. Here they are embracing during filming of The X Factor in December 2015, around the time they're said to have started dating.

AND to add even more fuel to the rumours, it looks like Liam got this rose tattoo on his hand in tribute to Cheryl's infamous rose bum inking just five weeks ago.
