Cheryl Fernandez-Versini and Liam Payne look loved-up as they make their red carpet debut


Cheryl Fernandez-Versini and Liam Payne were happy to flaunt their affection for each other as they made their red carpet debut as a couple.

Singers Cheryl, 32, and Liam, 22, posed together at this year's Global Gift Gala in Paris, before walking off holding hands.

Cheryl and Liam hit the red carpet hand-in-hand

Cheryl, who last month quit The X Factor to focus on her solo career, stunned in a halterneck pink dress.

Her former One Direction singer boyfriend opted for a simple black suit with white shirt, and struggled to take his eyes off her - whispering in her ear as they posed for the cameras.

Cheryl and Liam got cosy on the red carpet

Former Girls Aloud singer Cheryl had plenty to smile about as she arrived at the event with Liam in tow: she was being honoured by Desperate Housewives actress Eva Longoria for her charity work.

Cheryl posted on Instagram: "So honoured to receive the Global gift philanthropist award tonight."

International travel has clearly taken its toll on Liam, however.

In the early hours of the next morning, he posted a photograph captioned: "Paris before sunrise #jetlag"
