Cheryl and Liam had been joined by a whole host of friends to mark Lily's milestone, including the 'Crazy Stupid Love' singer's mum Joan.

While Cheryl's latest tweet dismissed rumours they were on a date, it didn't deny that she and Liam are now an item.

The pair have kept fans guessing over the last few weeks, but Liam seemed to confirm their relationship by dedicating an Instagram post to his "favourite woman" Cheryl on International Women's Day.

He had said: "Happy #internationalwomensday to my favourite woman in the world. Hope I make you as happy as u make me."

Reports suggest the pair have been dating since December, following Cheryl's split with her husband Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini.
