Liam Payne has officially moved on from his ex-girlfriend Cheryl after being pictured holding hands and kissing model Cairo Dwek.
The former One Direction star, who shares one year old son Bear with the former Girls Aloud singer, looked smitten as he stepped out with the leggy brunette just six weeks after announcing his split from Cheryl.
In pictures obtained by The Sun, Liam, 24, can be seen passionately kissing Cairo in the back of a car before the pair walked around hand-in-hand for all eyes to see.
Cairo, 20, joined Liam for a lunch date at Villa D’Este hotel in Italy, and the pair couldn’t keep their hands off each other as singer Liam wrapped his arms around the beautiful brunette.
An onlooker told The Sun: “There’s no doubt that Liam and Cairo are more than just friends.
“They were kissing passionately with his hand wrapped around the back of her head and they obviously couldn’t get enough of each other.

“They were walking around the hotel grounds hand in hand, he had his arm around her a lot and she had her hand on his bum.
“They’re obviously massively into each other.”
Liam and Cheryl, 35, started dating in early 2016 and welcomed their son Bear into the world on March 22 2017 after keeping former The X Factor star Cheryl’s pregnancy a secret.
The couple confirmed their relationship had ended on July 1 2018, saying they were splitting after two and a half years together.
They posted a message on social media that read: “We are sad to announce that we are going our separate ways. It’s been a tough decision for us to make.
“We still have so much love for each other as a family. Bear is our world and we ask that you respect his privacy as we navigate our way through this together.”
