It’s thought that Liam proposed to Maya during lockdown and comes after rumours that the couple had split earlier this year.

Instead, a friend of the couple told the Daily Mail they were taking their relationship off social media.

“Very happy”

“Maya and Liam are definitely still a couple and are very happy together,” the pal said.

They added: “Both have been taking time off social media and enjoying each other’s company away from the spotlight.”

Liam has previously opened up about life with Maya.

Posting a picture of the couple cuddling to Instagram last September, he paid tribute to his then-girlfriend.

Thanking Maya for her support as he released his single Stack It Up, he said: “Last but not least this one, @maya_henry for always keeping the biggest smile on my face through all the stress and making me realise how perfect my life really is.”

More bad news for Cheryl

The engagement news will no doubt come as a bit of a blow to ex-girlfriend Cheryl.

It’s been a tough week for the star, who broke her silence over former bandmate Sarah Harding’s breast cancer diagnosis.

Revealing her upset on Twitter, Cheryl posted a simple broken heart emoji as the new broke.
