Danielle Peazar (2010-2012)
Liam met dancer Danielle when they both appeared on The X Factor in 2010 with the couple going on to date for two years.
The pair enjoyed a very brief reconciliation the following year, but soon called it quits for good.

Sophia Smith (2013-2015)
Liam and Sophia originally met when they were both in school, but didn’t date until 2013, splitting in October 2015.
He told The Sun On Sunday at the time: ‘I’m absolutely devastated to have split with Sophia, but in order to do right by somebody, sometimes it’s better not to do what your heart wants, but to do what’s better for them.’
The split came as a shock to fans as just weeks before the boyband hunk admitted that the pair were talking about marriage.
In an interview with Attitude magazine, he said: ‘We have talked about marriage, but 22 seems a bit young for us. Sophia needs to go off and do what she wants to do.
‘I don’t want her to be one of those stay-at-home girlfriends who doesn’t really do much.’

Liam’s most high-profile romance was with singer Cheryl, who is 10 years his senior.
The couple first met when Cheryl was 24 when a then 14-year-old Liam first auditioned for the X Factor back in 2008, but the pair’s romance is said to have started in December 2015 when they got reacquainted at the X Factor final.
Cheryl and Liam went public with their romance in February 2016 and welcomed son Bear in March 2017.
The couple went their separate ways in July 2018 following a two and a half year romance but have remained amicable co-parents to their son.

Cairo Dwek (2018)
Liam enjoyed a summer romance with model Cairo, with their two-month relationship coming to an end in September 2018 after two months of dating.
The Bedroom Floor hitmaker confirmed their split when fans quizzed him on his relationship status – bizarrely beneath one of singer John Mayer’s live Instagram videos.
After John told fans he was single, Liam quickly shut down speculation adding: ‘I’m single too,’ followed by a wink emoji.

Naomi Campbell (2019)
Liam was linked Naomi, who is 23 years older than him, in 2019, with the couple said to have enjoyed a four-month fling that ended in April after Naomi got ‘bored’ of the singer.
It began with a seemingly harmless flirtation on Instagram, liking and commenting on one another’s steamy posts.
Liam described her as ‘perfection in a person’, with her branding him ‘a beautiful soul’.
There were reports about Liam bragging about the couple’s ‘mind-blowing’ sex, but when Naomi was asked outright about the tryst on The Jonathan Ross Show she said the rumours were ‘humorous’. Any romance appeared to end shortly after this.

Maya Henry (2019-2021)
Liam revealed in June that he had called off his engagement to fiancée Maya, in order to ‘work on himself’.
The couple confirmed their engagement in August 2020 after Liam popped the question during lockdown with a £3 million ring.
The pair were first linked back in August 2018 shortly after Liam’s high-profile split from Cheryl.
However, they first set eyes on each other three years earlier, when they were pictured together at a meet-and-greet event when One Direction fan Maya was 15.
