Liam Payne and Cheryl have a LOT to look forward to – if reports are to be believed – but it looks like they’ve always been made for each other…

It’s a very exciting time for Liam Payne and Cheryl: her divorce from Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini is about to be finalised, he’s just signed a new record deal AND there’s those ever-present rumours of a bun in the oven…

But could Cheryl, 33, and 23-year-old Liam have been made for each other all along? Fans of 90s sitcom Friends will recall Rachel Green and Ross Gellar as one of the best TV couples ever – and One Direction star Liam and Chez clearly agree.

LIAM SPARKS TWITTER FRENZY AS FANS THINK HE’S CONFIRMED CHERYL’S ‘PREGNANCY’

Way back in 2012 a fan on Twitter quizzed Liam about his favourite Friends character, and he responded: ‘Ross of course, he’s like me :).’

Fair enough. But, less than a year later, Cheryl was asked the same question, and she replied: ‘Rachel of course.’ So not only did they choose the two characters we championed to get together for 10 years, but their answers were practically the same!

Minds BLOWN.

Liam and Cheryl have quickly become the cutest celebrity couple ever, and we live for their regular social media posts dedicated to each other. Just weeks after going public with their romance, Liam posted a gorgeous snap of his new girlfriend on Instagram and wrote: ‘Happy #InternationalWomensDay to my favourite woman in the world. Hope I make you as happy as you make me X.’ Aww!

LIAM AND CHERYL: ‘THE NURSERY IS READY’ 

And even Cheryl’s former X Factor co-judge Louis Walsh thinks she and Liam are good together. He said recently: ‘Liam’s a nice guy and he’s in love with her. He’ll make her happy.’

Could Cheryl be walking down the aisle again in the near future? You know what they say about third time lucky…
