Liam Payne and Cheryl’s odd antics leave fans baffled
CHERYL TWEEDY was in The X Factor crowd cheering on Liam Payne — as he issued a warning to a love rival.
Former judge Chezza made a surprise return to the ITV show on Saturday to watch her boyfriend perform.
But Liam was more concerned about marking his territory with one of the contestants, Myles Rak-Su, 26, who has previously confessed to having a crush on Cheryl.
When host Dermot O’Leary asked who he’d been watching, Liam, 24, said: ‘Him [Myles] — he fancies my missus so I’ve got to keep an eye on him.’
The 1D heart-throb then baffled fans by hastily whisking 34-year-old Cheryl out of the studio, immediately after performing his new single Bedroom Floor.
Cameras showed Dermot looking puzzled as Liam jumped from the stage to usher the Girls Aloud favourite out of her seat.
One Twitter user wrote: ‘I thought he was going to propose!’ Another described his actions as a ‘bit unprofessional’.
Cheryl — who was on the panel when Liam auditioned in 2009 — also sent her best wishes to the ailing Simon Cowell.
‘I really miss you, Simon, I know you’ll be watching at home,’ she said. ‘You’re very, very missed and we love you.’
