What has Cheryl been up to?

Elsewhere, Liam’s ex, Cheryl, was said to be feeling ‘fed up and lonely’ after isolating at home with Bear during lockdown.

An insider told Heat magazine: “As amazing as it’s been with Bear, it’s hard work and having nothing to plan or look forward to has really affected her.

“Bear, like any three-year-old, can be very demanding.”

Cheryl and Liam believed the risk was too high for him to travel from his London home to visit his son.

Consequently, he missed the lad’s third birthday.

“Yeah, it was a really tough call to make to not go down for his birthday,” he told GMB.

“But I discussed it with Cheryl and we just thought it was the best option.”
