Cheryl Fernandez-Versini and Liam Payne off of One Direction are now properly official and stuff. Like, walking round Tesco together at midnight and Instgram official, which is pretty bloody official if you ask us. And while the whole thing might seem totally out of the blue; the pair go way back.

Yup - Cheryl and Liam first met when Payno auditioned for The X Factor first time round in 2008 as a floppy-haired fourteen-year-old who thought waistcoats were the height of cool. Since then quite a lot's happened - girlfriends have come and gone, Chezza's had a husband or two and here we are in 2016 getting our heads around the whole Chiam thing.

So, since Girls Aloud had that 'Whole Lotta History' song and One Direction's 'History' just went gold and that, we thought we'd take a look back at Cheryl and Liam's journey from...um...The X Factor to the sex factor. We assume that's happening, we don't really know. Anyway. Whatever.

Their first words

Chezza was clearly a fan of Liam back at his original, pre-One-Direction-even-being-a-thing telly talent show audition in 2008; telling him he was 'really cute' and admiring his charisma and 'cheeky wink.' GAH.

Cheryl nominates Liam for the ALS ice bucket challenge

In 2014 when errrryone was doing that ice bucket challenge thing, Cheryl nominated Payno, Nicola Roberts and Piers Morgan. Never really thought anything of it at the time, tbh.

'I Don't Care' (BIg Payno vs. Afterhrs Remix)

THEN Liam remixed Cheryl's number 1 single 'I Don't Care.' Again, we didn't really question it tbh. It *is* the only non-1D song he's ever remixed though, which is kinda weird. Hmm.

The first kiss

The pair apparently shared their 'first kiss' publicly when One Direction hit The X Factor stage last year to perform 'History.' Like, this is when things supposedly got kicked up a notch and the stories of Cheryl divorcing husband John Bernard Fernandez-Versini broke.

The Valentine's rose

AND TO THINK WE HAD NO IDEA.

Happy Valentine's Day baby ...🌹😉😍😘
