Cheryl, 33, had a chic autumnal vibe going on, co-ordinating a camel polo-neck dress with a peach-coloured jacket and over-the-knee black boots.

The outing came about amid that ‘pregnancy’ speculation, and while the ‘news’ hasn’t been confirmed, Chezza certainly looked gorgeous and glowing.

Her brunette locks had been teased into loose waves, while her make-up had been kept subtle. Just beaut.

Meanwhile, 23-year-old Liam had opted for acid wash jeans, a grey jumper and a gold chain.

All very sweet, right? But some One Direction fans ended up Tweeting their concerns for Liam, saying he looked ‘tired’ and ‘sad’. Hmm.

Messages included: ‘Liam looks so sad?,’ ‘He looks so tired/sad ?? I just hope you are happy with whoever you might be with,’ and: ‘I am definitely not hating on cheryl but liam looks so sad and exhausted ? [sic].’

Well, we think he looks great?! But it wouldn’t exactly be surprising if Liam were a little knackered. He’s recently been in LA, and he’s also been super-busy in the studio.

Just four days ago, he captioned an Instagram snap of himself and Pharrell Williams: ‘Great few days with @pharrell pleasure working with you as always ???.’

So he probably just has work on his mind, and is possibly a little jet-lagged.

Liam Payne recently updated his Twitter bio

We don’t think there’s any need to worry – there’s no denying that he’s in a great place right now. We mean, his Twitter bio reads: ‘The luckiest man in the world’.

And whatever the case, it’s lovely that he and Cheryl are getting to spend some time together. You keep doing you, guys!
