The Fight For This Love hitmaker revealed a huge baby bump as she attended the Quintessentially Foundation fair of St James Christmas Carol Concert in December.

A spokesperson for Cheryl told MailOnline that she will not be commenting on the matter.

The couple first met in 2008 when Liam was a teenage contestant on The X Factor and Cheryl was a judge.

Baby-faced Liam was 14 when he first auditioned for the show but he returned as a solo artist in 2010 only to be partnered with Niall Horan, Harry Styles, Zayn Malik and Louis Tomlinson, who went on to become global boyband One Direction.
