Liam Payne has confessed that he thinks about his ex-girlfriend Cheryl moving on and has expressed his hope that she finds happiness.

The One Direction singer, who shares two-year-old son Bear with the former Girls Aloud star, announced his split from Cheryl back in July 2018, however recently revealed that they’d broken up much earlier in the year.

Talking about the future and settling down with new people, Liam said during his appearance on Straight Talking with Ant Middleton: ‘I hope she’s happy, she deserves it, she’s a great mum, she works hard, she deserves to find happiness.

‘I have thought long and hard about [her moving on with someone else]. We will find our own peace with it, for now, it’s good.

‘I go over, do whatever, watch TV, it’s good, it’s nice.’

Liam first met Cheryl when he was just a teenager on X Factor back in 2010.

His band One Direction ended up coming third in the competition, after Rebecca Ferguson and Matt Cardle.

‘I went to Simon’s [Cowell] house and made a joke about how hot Cheryl was,’ Liam recalled. ‘Simon was like, “I know who’s going to be the next Mrs Payne.”

‘Then I was in a bar and Niall [Horan] came in and told me that Cheryl liked me. I was like “Cheryl? Cheryl?” Niall was in Simon’s dressing room, Simon said my name, she went red and left. So I hit her up.’

When quizzed on whether there’s a chance they could reconcile and get back together, Liam replied: ‘If she plays her cards right – I’m going to get a slap!’

Addressing the split, he opened up and said: ‘Both of us struggled under the pressure – working away a lot, a lot of noise being shouted at us about it, having a child in the mix, we grew apart.

‘I was worried I would not be enough to look after the both of them.’

Ant Middleton and Liam Payne: Straight Talking is available to stream on Sky One and NOW TV.
