In case you’ve spent the whole of this week living under a rock, you’ll know ALL about the claims that Cheryl Fernandez-Versini and One Direction’s Liam Payne are an item.
Not only that, but reports say that they’ve been seeing each other since DECEMBER last year, and that Liam is ‘madly in love’, according to a source.
The revalation was first published in The Sun, and the internet errupted at the news. But whilst there has been no word from either camp to confirm or deny the reports, Cheryl’s latest Instagram snap has got everyone talking.
The singer managed to send fans into total overdrive thanks to one seemingly innocent-looking selfi posted this afternoon.
The X Factor judge took to her Instagram account to share a smiling selfie from a mystery car, which she captioned with a smiley face emoji.
Cheryl looked gorgeous in a red patterned silky bomber jacket as she cocked her head coyly to one side – but hang on, what’s that in the background?
Beady-eyed fans couldn’t help but notice that Cheryl seemed to be sandwiched in between two arms, and quickly decided the hairy one on the left MUST belong to Liam.
‘But whos is that arm’, wrote one fan. ‘Its Liam’s arm?’ debated another.
‘I’m gonna be saying “Liam’s arm” in my sleep if I see it one more time’, commented another user. LOL. It does look like a male arm, but is it Liam? Pfft. Who knows.

The selfie comes after Liam seemed to respond to the rumours by changing his profile picture to a snap of him and Cheryl. WE KNOW.
With one swift Insta-snap, the internet seems to have concluded that they ARE the hottest new celebrity match on the block.
The One Direction star changed his profile picture to a selfie of the two of them together, and also altered his bio to read, simply, ‘Happy’ (although has since changed it back).
Liam appears to be shirtless, and Cheryl is wearing a striped top, with her hands in a peace sign across her face.
According to The Sun, a friend of the pair revealed: ‘Cheryl and Liam are in a relationship. It was unexpected but they’ve both made each other incredibly happy.
‘They’ve always got on well and share many of the same interests, but there was never anything romantic between them in the past.
‘Their relationship developed very quickly in December after the X Factor final where One Direction gave their final performance before starting their hiatus. Liam is madly in love. This is the real deal.’
We guess we’ll just have to watch this one unfold…
