According To Sinitta, Liam Payne Really Fancies Cheryl

So apparently, Liam Payne’s had the hots for Cheryl Fernandez-Versini for a few months. Ooh.

In case you’ve been living under a rock for the past few days, you’ll have heard the rumours about Liam and Cheryl’s ‘romance’. But when did it all start?

Well. While Liam, 22, has known the 32-year-old singer since he first auditioned for The X Factor back in 2008, he allegedly couldn’t hide his attraction when they were reunited in December.

Remember One Direction performing on the final just before Christmas? According to Simon Cowell’s close friend Sinitta, Liam was instantly smitten.

She tells the Daily Star: ‘Cheryl came in and said “Hello”. Liam was like a schoolboy afterwards going: “Wow. It’s Cheryl.”‘

TBH, that’s probably the reaction we’d have had as well.

So what is going on between Liam and Chezza? Well, in all honesty, we’re not entirely sure. They’ve pretty much been keeping us on tenterhooks all week.

What we do know is that Liam changed his Instagram profile photo to a super-cute selfie of himself and Cheryl on Sunday, before deleting it a few days later.

This got fans wondering if their ‘relationship’ had come to an abrupt end. But then he posted his first official snap with the Geordie stunner on Wednesday. And he was looking pretty smug, if you ask us.

After that, Chezza shared a hilarious shot of herself standing in front of three guys, with the cheeky caption: ‘My mystery man line up #whosthemysteryman #whoisit #whosworthit.’

We don’t know who the other two guys are, but the one over to the far left is definitely Liam.

Is she just teasing us? Are they really a couple? Are they just pals? IT’S SO CONFUSING.

But don’t they look good together?!
