Liam announced his split from Cheryl – with whom he shares one-year-old Bear – two months ago, with both stars revealing in separate statements that they’re still going to support each other.

After two-and-a-half years of dating, they said: ‘We still have so much love for each other as a family. Bear is our world and we ask that you respect his privacy as we navigate our way through this together.’

Meanwhile, 35-year-old Chez was pictured with their tot in public for the first time over the weekend as she took little Bear to a kids’ party at Girls Aloud star Kimberly Walsh’s house.
