Could the be a new love chapter in store for the singer?
The 35-year-old – who parted ways with Liam, 25, last July after a two-and-a-half year romance – described how she found the ‘lows’ of a romance the hardest thing to bear.
‘I hate the lows… I hate the lows. It’s kind of one of the things that makes us not want to get into a relationship. Nothing quite makes you feel like that, does it? Nothing else,’ she told the MailOnline.
‘And I know you have to take the highs with the lows, so I’m working on being OK with that, but at the moment, I just don’t need it. I don’t want it.’
And when it comes to opening up a new chapter in her love life twice-divorced Chezza remains hopeful, but revealed that her current priorities were elsewhere.
She said: ‘I wouldn’t say I’ve given up on love. I love, love. But I have paused my relationship goals. All is well. I’m just going with the flow, but I have no plans to meet anybody anytime soon.’
Co-parenting with her ex – with whom she shares one-year-old son Bear Grey Payne – is something that the Greatest Dancer judge feels positive about.
She added: ‘There’s no animosity whatsoever. We are learning all the time. And it’s good, it’s healthy. We’re just like any other couple that have gone through this, but we have a few more eyes watching us… Just a few.’
The singer also spoke happily about the transformative effect becoming a mum has had on her life.
‘Having Bear has helped. I have a different purpose now. Before, I would work and work and work, and that was the main subject in my life – and now he is,’ she revealed.
‘But being a mum also makes you enjoy it more and appreciate it more. I feel more comfortable with it.’
