The Cheryl Cole pregnancy rumours continue apace – after her mum was spotted buying a pregnancy pillow in Mothercare. 

In an image posted to Twitter, Joan Callaghan can be seen at the till, paying for the item.

The pillows can be used during pregnancy and after the baby is born and are designed to help support an expectant mother's bump, back and knees.

Cherly, 33, and Joan, 58,  are know to be particularly close.

Earlier this year, fans were critical of Ms Callaghan's continued presence during the dates of her daughter and Liam Payne, 23.

Indeed, Cheryl felt compelled to issue a comment on the matter in March of this year.

Taking to Twitter "to clear a few things up," she stated: "There have been a lot of unfair comments about my Mam today and I have to clear a few things up in her defence.

"While I am extremely close to my Mam and respect her entirely, she does not and never has had any influence in any of my relationships.

"As a 32-year-old woman I make my own decisions and choices and take full responsibility for them."

Joan lived with her daughter and Ashley Cole during their marriage and it was widely rumoured that the constant presence of his mother-in-law caused the former footballer considerable discomfort. 

Cherly and Liam began dating last December following the break-down of her second marriage to French businessman Jean Bernard Fernandez Versini.

Numerous sources have said that with the former X Factor judge recently celebrating her 33rd birthday, she is desperate to have a baby with her One Direction love. 


She's back on this side of the Atlantic – and today Cher Lloyd made a welcomed appearance on ITV's Loose Women.

In fact the petite singer, who has had a string of chart hits since she first found fame on The X Factor back in 2010, revealed that it's been a full two YEARS since she first packed up and moved Stateside. 

And the impact of her American beauty regime could today be seen to full effect.

Indeed, fellow panellist Martine McCutcheon couldn't help but comment how the 23-year-old looked "stunning".

Fans and viewers at home, however, felt that her look was striking for one reason alone – namely that she and her former reality TV show mentor and one-time nemesis Cheryl Cole have now largely morphed into the same person.

From the glossy mane of brunette tresses to the mega-white teeth, make-up, high cheek bones and sun-kissed skin – the resemblance was certainly uncanny. 

Previously close, Cheryl and Cher had a famous falling out in 2012 when the latter said she would only sing a duet with the former if "she sang live" without the help of Auto-Tune.

Afterwards, Ms Cole angrily tweeted: "Be careful who you kick on your way up. They kick you twice as hard on your way back down. #unappreciationisugly," later admitting in an interview that the jibe was a "slap in the face".

It is an issue that Loose Women's Janet Street Porter gently asked about today: "Cheryl; have you made up with her?" the journalist said.

To which the popstar replied: "Oh yeah, we made up ages ago. I had gotten married and she tweeted me. And then when she got married and I tweeted her."

Although when pushed on whether the duo would be meeting up, a smiling Ms Lloyd stated diplomatically; "I'd hope to bump into her. It would be nice to bump into her."



Anyone who doubted the relationship between Cheryl Cole and Liam Payne may have to eat their words as reports currently swirl that the couple are planning to start a family together.

According to insiders, Cheryl, who is 10 years Liam's senior, is reportedly preparing for the pitter-patter of teeny tiny feet.

Speaking to NOW magazine, a source close to the couple said that the Fight For This Love singer is putting all her energy into researching pregnancy and motherhood.

"Cheryl's never been more determined to have a baby. It's like it's the only thing in the world that matters to her." they revealed.

The Geordie girl who has been dating the former One Direction star since December has never made any secret of her desire to become a mother, and it sounds like she's decided the time has come.

"Cheryl has a stash of pregnancy and motherhood books she's always reading. She's never been so focused on something," the source added.

The couple have been the subject of intense speculation since confirming their relationship earlier this year, and if they hoped mentor Simon Cowell would avoid the gossip, they were sorely mistaken.

Adding fuel to the fire, Simon admitted, according to The Mirror, that he thought the former Girls Aloud star would make a fantastic mother.

"Cheryl would be an amazing mum. I have seen her with my son Eric and other kids over the years and she is incredible," he said.

"She is very good with them. I think she is in a good place in her life right now."

In all seriousness, how cute would that kid be?!



What is it about Justin Bieber this week?

He may seem initially reluctant to get involved in celebrity gossip, but when he does, he really sends social media into overdrive.

And while Cheryl Cole and Liam Payne's relationship has been a huge talking point this year, the couple themselves have refused to reveal too much, but it looks like JB is well up for it.

Just weeks after Liam's ex-girlfriend wished her former boyfriend well, good ol' Justin has sent the rumour mill into overdrive by suggesting there may be a wedding on the horizon.

The Sorry singer, who recently threw shade at Taylor Swift, is obviously feeling a little more positive, and took an opportunity to share his thoughts on the Cheryl's relationship with the former 1D member.

Speaking to The Daily Star, Justin insisted that the couple were on the fast track to marriage, saying of Cheryl: "She looks the happiest I have ever seen her. She is beautiful inside and out, so she deserves all the happiness the world."

"Liam is a great guy, all the One Direction guys are," he continued. "They just better make sure I am invited to the wedding."

Justin, who says he saw Cheryl just a couple of weeks back, has obviously gotten over being pie'd by her when he laid on the ol' Canadian charm following an X Factor performance back in 2010.

Walking it off there, J-man.


They're famously flirty on The X Factor.

And despite a high-profile falling out back in 2011 over the US version of the hit reality TV talent show, Cheryl Cole and Simon Cowell are now once again thick as thieves. 

Indeed, the 33-year-old pop-starlet's estranged husband Jean-Bernard Fernandez Versini reckons the music mogul exercised a little too much control over her life – suggesting that Simon pushed a stressed Ms Cole to the limits last year.

A source close to Jean-Bernard told the Sun On Sunday today: “JB’s convinced Simon and X Factor played a big role in the end of his marriage.

“He says he watched Cheryl become extremely stressed by the gruelling X Factor filming process.

“He’d stand up for her when he felt people were pushing her to do too much.

“At the end of the 2014 series he said they came to a decision as a couple that she would not return.

“He claims work offers suddenly stalled and Cheryl felt she had no choice but to sign for another year.”

The source added that X Factor producers also didn't want the 35-year-old French businessman on set, explaining: “JB was upset by this as it meant they spent hardly any time together.

“He’s convinced Simon started whispering in Cheryl’s ear about him.”

Now it seems that 56-year-old Mr Cowell may have created something of a formidable nemesis; the source concluded: “It would give JB satisfaction if he could humiliate him.”

Ms Cole sparked concern among fans last year when she appeared to lose a significant amount of weight during X Factor filming. 

Of course, Cheryl is now happily in a relationship with One Direction's Liam Payne. For 2016, she has also decided not to return to her judge's chair, opting to concentrate on her music career instead.

In lieu, Simon has signed up Sharon Osbourne, Louis Walsh, and Nicole Scherzinger.


Last week, there was much discussion on what Cheryl Cole wore to a wedding.

The wedding in question was that of Ruth Payne's – the sister of mega-famous 1Der Liam… now also Cheryl's totes-loved-up beau.

Many commented that the outfit The X Factor judge opted for – a grey and shapeless tunic to her ankles teamed with chunky black platform heels – was unusual for a star ordinarily associated with red-carpet glamour and fashion-forward choices.

Indeed, rumour was abound that the 33-year-old was expecting her first child, while others suggested her wardrobe was dictated by a desire not to upstage the wedding party itself.

Now even the bride has weighed in on the speculation, stating that she "had no say over what any guest wore to my wedding".

"Don't know who does have a say but considering my brothers girlfriend is one of the most beautiful women in the world she can wear anything and still look stunning as she did at my wedding," she added.

Ruth admitted that she was prompted to take to Twitter and make the statement because she "did something i shouldnt and read comments on online articles about my wedding".

She later explained: "Sorry but had to say something, im just a normal girl who married my childhood sweetheart in my dream wedding."

Ms Payne had earlier revealed that she lost a total of 3stone in the run-up to her nuptials and that she 'loved' her wedding dress. 



We have to admit that we raised an eyebrow when it emerged that Cheryl Cole and Liam Payne were an item.

However, they're definitely the couple that has REALLY won us over. In fact, we dare say that the duo have fast become one of our all time favourite celebrity pairings.

And while pregnancy speculation has swirled before, it seems that one particular leaked image has sent fans into baby rumour overdrive.

Over the weekend, a dressed-down Cheryl and Liam attended the wedding of his sister, Ruth.

The event had a strict no-pictures, no-social media policy, but a few sneak-peaks have now begun to emerge on Twitter – and scores of fans are CONVINCED that the pop-star is sporting a baby bump. 

Wearing a loose grey tunic, there seems to be the tiniest hint of pregnancy in the just-unveiled snaps (in a normal person ate-a-bowl-of-pasta kinda way). However, another more telling image shows the 32-year-old shielding her stomach with her clutch bag while Liam places a protective hand on her back. 

Whether an unfortunate angle or a trick of the light, we dare say it's probably the most pregnant the Newcastle-native has ever looked.

Understandably, today there has been no official word from either camp in relation to the leaked photos or the resulting rumour.  



Poor ol' Liam Payne probably thought he was fairly safe to share a snap of him and Cheryl now that they finally walked the red carpet together, but it looks like the 1D star may have gotten a little ahead of himself.

Uploading a black and white shot of the pair looking super cosy on the way to Cannes, 22-year-old Liam really mistook many of his fans' take on the new relationship.

While some Directioners were keen to offer their support, others couldn't resist getting in a cheeky dig about the controversial 10-year age gap between Liam and the Fight For This Love singer.

Taking aim at the fact that Cheryl is just that *teensy* bit older than her new boyfriend, one Instagram user quipped: "Mother son goals."

Echoing their fellow Directioners' snarky comments, one follower wrote: "Your grandma is so beautiful" while another posted: "Sweet as mom and son." Ouch!

While the photo has clocked up a whopping 338,000 likes in just one hour, the snap proves that not all Directioners are ready to accept the pairs' new romance.

That age-gap isn't going to close any time soon, so they may want to just get over it…



After the breakdown of her second marriage, Cheryl Fernandez-Versini's name has become a major talking point.

Will she keep it, like she kept Cole? Or will she go back to her Tweedy roots?

Nope. Cheryl plans on using only her first name, just like Madonna and Adele.

The singer is planning to re-brand herself next month at the Global Gift Gala in Paris where her new title will be debuted.

A source told The Daily Mail: "Cheryl wants to wipe the slate clean and start afresh with a new name, now the divorce is going through. Things turned pretty nasty over the weekend, with both Cheryl and JB making comments on social media, so from here on in, she will just be known as Cheryl."

Do you think it will stick? Or will we have another debacle of Cheryl becoming angry because everyone is using the 'wrong' name? Only time will tell with this one… 



While we are still trying to wrap our heads around the idea, the internet is alight this morning over rumours that our very own Cheryl is having a secret romance with none other than One Direction's Liam Payne. 

The recently divorced (and recently renamed) popstar has reportedly been dating the singer, who is ten years her junior, since her split from Jean Bernard Fernandez-Versini in December. 

We have so many thoughts… 

According to the Sun who have broken the story today, the pair are dating and have become very close since the marriage split late last year. 

"Cheryl and Liam are in a relationship. It was unexpected but they’ve both made each other incredibly happy," a source has reportedly told the paper though neither party have confirmed the romance as of yet. 

The pair would already be acquaintances as Cheryl was a judge on the X Factor the year that 1D made their lucky break in 2010. 

The newspaper, who described the pair as 'secret lovers' in a huge front-page splash, are even reporting that the couple have matching rose tattoos referring to Cheryl's large artwork on her derrière and Liam's more recent rose ink on his hand. 

Both Cheryl and the One Direction star were also seen attending the same BRIT awards party last week. 

All we can say is, if this one is true, then our minds are well and truly blown. 


Tweedy, Cole, Fernandez-Versini… we've known Cheryl by various different identities since she first found fame with Popstars: The Rivals back in 2002.

Now, over a decade on, Cheryl is leaving her roots behind – all of them – and making like Beyoncé. Yup, the X Factor glamazon would reportedly prefer to be known on a first-name basis ONLY from now on.

It certainly seems like a good decision to us, given that Tweedy doesn't exactly fit with the uber-stylish Cheryl we've come to know, and that Cole and Fernandez-Versini are both surnames from her failed marriages.

According to Closer magazine, a few "keen fans" noticed that the singer was being referred to only as "Cheryl" at last night's BRIT Awards in London's O2.

Whether it was a request from Cheryl's camp, or a decision by the organisers to avoid calling her by the wrong surname remains to be seen, but either way we're totally on board.

It seems the 32-year-old has had something of a dilemma trying to settle on a permanent moniker since announcing her split from Jean-Bernard in early January.

"Cheryl has had to reinvent herself several times but her three past names all have very different memories," a source told The Sun recently.

"Tweedy is associated with her assault court case [after an incident in a nightclub in 2003], Cole with [her first husband] Ashley’s cheating."

According to documents obtained by the paper last month, Cheryl has requested that her current name, Fernandez-Versini, remain unchanged in any contracts linked to her company, CC Couture Ltd.

However in celebrity and media circles it seems she's happiest to go surname-free from now on.


Her second marriage may have only lasted 18 months – but it appears newly single Cheryl Fernandez Versini is already looking for love again.

Indeed, it has now been reported that no fewer than three high-profile men have their romantic eye on the pop-starlet – and she's more than happy to court their attention. 

Given the English beauty's status of millionaire X Factor judge, it's no surprise that the trio of love-interests in question are comprised of a successful businessman, a music executive, and a sports star.

Cheryl, 32, was married to footballer Ashley Cole until 2010, while second husband Jean Bernard had several business interests in the restaurant and nightclub industry – meaning this time perhaps she'll be more inclined to try her luck with the music executive. 

The men have yet to be named, but Closer magazine quotes a source who says: "Cheryl is starting to feel like her old self again.

"She says she is being chased by three different men and the attention has really given her something to smile about after a horrible few months."

The source added: "She's being coy about revealing their identities – but her phone is constantly buzzing with messages from them.

"It's putting a spring in her step and she's laughed that she's spoilt for choice when it comes to offers for dates."

Cheryl and Jean Bernard – whom she affectionally called JB – are believed to have split last August. They married in May 2014 after just three months together.

"In the end Cheryl realised she had married too soon and had been swept away by a bit of a whirlwind romance," a friend told The Sunday Mirror.

"Over time it became clear to each of them that they were very different people and from very different worlds."
