When it comes to celebrity romances, it’s fair to say that people love to have an opinion.
And on last night’s The Only Way Is Essex, the TOWIE girls certainly didn’t hold back when it came to their thoughts on Liam Payne and Cheryl Fernandez-Versini.
‘Oh my God, have you heard about Cheryl Cole?’ Georgia asked pal Billie Faiers during a morning gossip session on the first episode of the new series.
‘He’s the really nice one of One Direction,’ said Billie, praising the singer. ‘He’s the one who is kind of understated.’
But whilst Billie seemed all for the new pairing, Georgie couldn’t help but be a little sceptical about the reported romance.
‘I don’t know what he’s doing right but he must be good in bed or something because he pulled Cheryl Cole’, she cried. ‘What the hell?!’
Crikey, don’t hold back then, Georgia!
Ever the diplomat, Billie replied: ‘Good for her. I mean, good for her, he’s quite young, but why not?’, referencing the pair’s ten year age-gap.
‘Can you imagine how much he adores her and what he does for her?!’ Georgia replied.
The TOWIE girls aren’t the only ones to have waded into the conversation about Cheryl and Liam – just last week, Simon Cowell’s showbiz friend Sinitta also gave her two cents.
‘I was surprised to hear about their romance, but in a way not surprised because I remember how Liam kind of reacted when he saw her at the X Factor studios last year during the live show’, she told Reveal.
‘He definitely kind of swooned like, “Wow, Cheryl, she’s hot” kind of thing.’
We imagine that’s how most people react, TBH.
