According to reports this morning, One Direction’s Liam Payne is apparently, allegedly, supposedly dating his long term crush Leona Lewis.

We’ll give you a few seconds while your jaws hit your keyboards.

Liam Payne and Leona Lewis dating

A "close family source" has told The Mirror that 19-year-old Liam has managed to already go on two dates with Leona, 27, despite only breaking up with Danielle Peazer (and Leona look-alike, ahem) days ago.

“He is really excited about how things are going with Leona.

“As soon as the chance came to ask her out he grabbed it – and they really enjoyed their dates together.

“Although they were in London they managed to stay out of the limelight and are really into each other.”

Scapers know all too well, Liam has never made a secret of the fact that he massively fancies la Lewis, even back in January 2011 he told us, “My celebrity crush has got to be Leona Lewis... love Leona Lewis.”

The romance between the two (Lioma?) apparently started earlier this summer.

“Leona told how she enjoyed giving Liam advice about his career. It was all harmless fun at the time. But now Liam seems to have moved on to Leona.

“He is not at all bothered about the eight-year age gap.”

When we asked Leona back in September last year about Liam’s crush on her she described him as “the sweetest boy”.

"Basically, through my Twitter I was getting inundated with these girls telling me that I needed to follow Liam Payne, literally to the point where my Twitter wasn’t working, so I was forced to follow him," she told us.

"Then I found out that he is a fan of mine and really likes my music. "I met him and he is just the sweetest boy - he is so lovely, so I’m really pleased that everyone got me to follow him!"

The insider also revealed that while Liam was always faithful to Danielle, his constant touring with 1D put a massive strain on their relationship.

“Liam has jetted around the world with girls lusting after him,” said the insider.

“While he was never unfaithful, it was hard for Danielle to cope.

“She would have loved to have seen more of Liam, but his career had to come first. It’s sad they’ve had to part. But you could understand why a woman like Leona Lewis would be able to cope with Liam’s superstar status.”

So we might have to go to bed now, get back up and make sure we didn’t just dream this. In the meantime check out our interview with Liam where he confesses his feelings for Leona.

Oh and have a look at this story where Leona says she’d never go out with a member of 1D. Awkward.
