Cheryl Cole and Liam Payne split up

Cheryl and Liam Payne have announced they're splitting up, but say their 18-month-old son Bear is their "world" and "they still have so much love for each other as a family". </3

The celeb pair, who've been together for two and a half years, took to Twitter to break the news that they are going their separate ways, sharing almost identical posts online.

Cheryl said that it's been a "tough decision for the couple to make", tweeting:

It's the singer's third high-profile break up since she's been in the public eye, splitting from footballer Ashley Cole in 2010 and restauranter Jean Fernandez-Versini in 2016.

Cheryl and Liam first met on The X Factor in 2008, when she was a judge and he auditioned as a solo contestant, then 14 years old. Reports say the couple had relationship troubles earlier this year "but were able to get through them". 

They welcomed baby Bear in March last year after being an item since 2016.

Liam tweeted a similar message:
