‘I was saying something about Cheryl one night in Simon’s house, and he was like: “I think I know who is going to be the future Mrs Payne”, and I was like “Who are you on about?”

‘He was like: “I’m not telling you, you’ll have to wait and see”. They played cupid. If you ever need anything hooking up, those are your boys.”

Meanwhile, Liam recently admitted he has no plans to marry Cheryl in the near future.

The Strip That Down singer said: ‘I see marriage as more of a religious thing and I’m not really a religious person, so I know it’s not really on the cards for me at the moment. So no, not yet, unfortunately.’

That was then... He said: 'Her name is officially Cheryl Tweedy now, but to be honest it doesn't really bother me, we have a kid together, there's a lot more to our life'
