Rumours of Cheryl’s pregnancy have been circulating for months, but the singer has so far neither confirmed nor denied she is expecting her first child.

Discussing Cheryl’s and Liam’s romance, Brian continued: “It’s funny to think back how long ago it was that they first met.

“There’s something ironic in that they both came up into the industry in the same way, so they have an immediate connection. They’re in love and it works for them.”

In an interview published last weekend, Cheryl said she was now happier than she’s ever been before.
