Cheryl couldn't resist sharing a very smouldering photo of her boyfriend Liam Payne on Instagram – and fans couldn't blame her! The X Factor star, who made her return to TV over the weekend with Simon Cowell, uploaded the snap that showed Liam pouting at the camera. "I had to... I mean come onnnn," Cheryl wrote, alongside an emoji with heart eyes. Fans were quick to express their envy, as one wrote: "He is hot Cheryl! Hold on to him!" Another posted: "I do not blame you, he is one good looking man." A third commented: "Luckiest girl in the world I mean."

Cheryl, 34, tends to keep her private life out of the spotlight, although she has been showing more public displays of affection with her boyfriend. Over the weekend, she helped Simon pick his final three X Factor acts at Judges Houses, and had to fend off an admirer. Miles from band Rak-Su couldn't hide his crush for Cheryl, leaving Simon to tease: "You like her, don’t you?" Laughing the moment off after Miles cheekily winked at her, the former Girls Aloud singer said: "I'm taken, sorry!" Simon added teasingly: "Trust me guys, on this show, anything could happen!"

Cheryl starred on The X Factor over the weekend

Cheryl and Liam, who met when the One Direction singer auditioned on The X Factor, became parents for the first time in March. The couple welcomed a son, Bear. Cheryl recently admitted that she hated being pregnant, but wouldn't rule out having another child. "I hated being pregnant," Cheryl told Lorraine, speaking from Simon's house in the south of France. "A lot of stuff went on and I just didn't enjoy it." She added: "I have no plans of two at the moment, but I think maybe one day."

Of taking a break from the spotlight, Cheryl said: "I didn't stop for 14 years, literally on the rollercoaster, and when I got pregnant I thought, 'Right, I just don't need this stress.' So I relaxed. So it's been like actually over a year, but it's been perfect for me because it's re-set the mind frame, and I feel actually better coming back."
