Pretty 52

The showbiz world was pretty shocked last year when reports emerged that Liam Payne, 23, was dating "Just Cheryl," 33. Mainly because of their 10-year age gap.

The pair first met when the 'Strip That Down' singer, then a fourteen-year-old schoolboy, auditioned for The X Factor and Chezza was a judge.

Did you see that wink? If only he knew then what he knows now, eh!

However, according to Liam, Cheryl does NOT like being reminded of this fact.


Radio 1 Breakfast host Nick Grimshaw brought it up during an interview live on air this morning and Liam replied: "She doesn't like to talk about that."

When asked to reveal why he promised he would explain when the pair were off air. SMH. How rude?

Nick went on to ask Liam about his new single, which he released today, and joked that he was still in the very early stages of his career as he's "only 12."

Liam then replied: "[Cheryl's] going to be really offended that you called me 12 by the way."

Uh oh. It's obviously a bit of a touchy subject but they do have a kid together now so I doubt she's that bothered about it TBH.
