While Liam may be in the doghouse, it’s clear that Chiam are very settled, and it looks like they’re going to have a wonderful Christmas together.

Liam’s been busy recording his debut solo album in LA over the past few months, but now appears to have touched back down in the UK.

He shared a photo of himself decked out in a woolly beanie and coat this morning, writing the caption: ‘Morning jog.’

Cheryl was spotted with a ‘bump’ last month…

Cheryl recently opened up about how she’ll be spending the festive season, telling Notebook: ‘I used to really look forward to what I was going to get, but now I just don’t need anything.

‘I just love the quiet time, the family time. Being with people, that’s what’s important to me. I like giving gifts more than receiving them. Selfishly. I actually get more pleasure out of watching their faces, giving them something they really want.’

Aw. Sounds lovely to us.
