Cheryl Cole and Liam Payne

But while we all know the rather awkward story of how these two first met – a floppy-haired Liam performed in front of Chez at the X Factor auditions all the way back in 2008 – the pair have never revealed how they managed to strike up a relationship eight years later.


That is until now, as 24-year-old Liam has confessed it was actually Cheryl who made the first move on him. Well, we weren’t expecting that!

The former One Direction star spilled the beans while playing a game of true or false with Nick Grimshaw on his Radio One Breakfast Show.

As presenter Nick fired a load of random questions at him, Liam wasn’t shy in giving his opinions especially when he was faced with the statement ‘Liam doesn’t like a girl to make the first move’.

Hitting back, the popstar said: ‘I don’t know about that, I’m into it.’

He then added: ‘Chez kind of made the first move on me if I’m honest. She tickled my hair and now look a few years later…’

Well, that must have been one hell of a tickle. This isn’t the first time Liam has revealed details about his girlfriend live on air, as last month the X Factor star got himself in hot water with another cheeky confession.

As he chatted to Grimmy from the Surrey mansion he shares with Chezza and their one-year-old baby Bear, he revealed to listeners: ‘She’s actually in the toilet, this is hilarious.’

If that wasn’t uncomfortable enough, Liam continued the bathroom chat when he said to his 34-year-old GF: ‘Let’s find out what’s going on. First off, was it a number one or a number two?’

Oh, Liam. When will you learn?
