Piers Morgan Slams Cheryl And Liam Payne's Break-Up Statement
Liam Payne and Cheryl have announced that they are spitting up after two and a half years together. While their break-up may not come as a surprise for fans after months of speculation, Piers Morgan couldn't help but weigh in on the situation...
The Good Morning Britain host didn't hold back with his comments in light of the split, insisting that celeb couples should be 'more honest' when they announce that they are going their separate ways with fans.
Piers also went on to say that sticking by one another for two and a half years 'wasn't an achievement'.
He added: "Well their relationship lasted more than two years, as if somehow in showbiz circles that's bordering on miraculous."
Piers' co-host, Susanne Reid, pointed out that rumours of an impending break-up have been swirling around the couple for months now, first starting at the beginning of the year.
He continued: "Well it's sad for them I just think this idea that we categorise it as some kind of achievement. I mean it's not really, is it?"
The couple, who share one-year-old Bear together, announced that their relationship was over late on Sunday evening, sharing almost identical statements on their official Twitter accounts.
Cheryl and I are sad to announce that we are going our separate ways. It's been a tough decision for us to make. 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.- Liam (@LiamPayne) July 1, 2018
Former Girls Aloud pop star Cheryl posted: "We are sad to announce that we are going our separate ways. It's been a tough decision for us to make.
"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."
A source close to Cheryl and Liam claims that the couple called time on their romance two weeks ago, adding that the One Direction singer has already moved out of their family home.
