One Direction star Liam Payne has been gushing over his girlfriend Sophia Smith in a new Instagram photo.

In the photo, Sophia tenderly puts her arm across Liam's chest as the pair smile for the photo.

Captioning the snap, Liam said: "Me and the most beautiful girl in the world :)."

Could he be any more smitten?!

The couple, who began dating last year, are childhood friends having attended the same school in Wolverhampton.

In May, it was rumoured that Liam and Sophia had split following a series of cryptic tweets, but the rumours were quashed when they were spotted out together soon after.

Liam has spent much of the past month touring Europe with his bandmates - Louis, Niall Horan, Harry Styles and Zayn Malik - for their mammoth 'Where We Are World Tour'. The five-piece will resume touring duties in August where they'll perform across North America.
