Apparently, Liam Payne secretly dated this former Love Island contestant
Liam Payne reportedly started dating Love Island 2017 winner Amber Davies after his split from Cheryl last year.
The pair are first believed to have gotten together in October last year, shortly before the One Direction singer reportedly got involved with supermodel Naomi Campbell in December.
A source told The Sun that Amber and Liam were keen to make sure nobody found out, "due to his breakup with Cheryl and new thing with Naomi."
“Amber’s very much Liam’s type and doesn’t look a world away from one of his former girlfriends.
“She was very excited to meet him some years ago at the Radio 1 Teen Awards. She told her Twitter followers she fan-girled over him.
“Her dreams came true when they went home together after partying at a nightclub in London. There was a real physical attraction between them.
"They were determined nobody should find out, due to his break-up with Cheryl and this new thing with Naomi.
"But he and Amber still keep in touch and text every now and then.”

Liam was also the one who consoled Amber's ex-boyfriend, Kem Cetinay, when the Love Island winners split up in December 2017.
Kem said at the time:
“He was one of the first people to text me. It was out of the blue.
“He was checking I was OK and gave me good advice. I couldn’t believe he was going out of his way to talk to me.”
Amber and Kem were the winners of Love Island 2017, but announced the end of their relationship just a few months later.
Liam and Cheryl split in summer 2018 after a two year relationship. They have a 23-month-old son, Bear, together.
