Having previously gushed over one another on a number of occasions, fans have begged for a romance between the pair.
While it’s yet to be on the cards, it hasn’t stopped them being hopeful – and their latest reunion is likely to please a lot of people.
Attending a Cannes party, the duo looked like the ultimate power duo as they oozed glamour.
Liam looked dapper as he posed in a fitted suit, while Rita stole the show in a skintight black ensemble.
The dress fanned out at the bottom as she flashed her pins for the leggy display – and it soon caught Liam’s eye.
After being spotted chatting on multiple occasions, the pair looked caught in a close conversation as they attended the festival.
The babe dropped jaws while she pinned her hair back and opted for a glamorous makeup look.
With black eye makeup surrounding her lids and a subtle nude hue on her plump pout, Rita stole the show as they appeared close at the event.
Their reunion comes months after Rita shared a snap of the duo where she labelled Liam her “partner in crime”.
At the time, fans were quick to urge the duo to become a couple, with the snap coming just weeks after his split from Cheryl.
After hitting 203,000 likes at the time of publication, fans of the pair were quick to gush over a possible romance.
One user wrote: “Please date.”
Another added: “Erm, date night?”
While a third chirped: “I love these two together.”
Needless to say, the pair haven’t confirmed whether anything has happened – or will happen – between them, but it hasn’t stopped fans dreaming.
