32-year-old Cheryl happens to be an X Factor UK judge, who was actually on the panel when One Direction was formed back in 2010, but the two met prior to that when he tried out in 2008 and failed to get through.

A friend has also told The Sun that the two are happy together.

“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.”

Well. There you go. 

Good luck to them!
