After dropping the romance based bombshell and sending us all into meltdown mode with their secret relationship, One Direction's Liam Payne and Cheryl have stayed relatively off the radar - which might be because they're forging plans to help her crack America.

Or that's what they're up to if the latest reports from Heat magazine are anything to go by, anyway, who reckon their red carpet debut at Cannes Film Festival helped to launch Cheryl and her career into the spotlight over the pond.

According to their source, who claims to be an 'insider close to the star': "Liam [Payne's] massive in America because of One Direction. After his and Cheryl's loved-up appearance on the red carpet in Cannes, she's suddenly in demand."

The source went on to explain how 'baby bump' rumours surrounding the couple (WHAT RUMOURS? TELL US WHAT RUMOURS) have helped her profile even more, as people are super interested in Liam and Cheryl's relationship.

"Refusing to respond to questions about the 'baby bump' has made her even hotter property, too", the source continued. "Her team's had calls from US music bosses, casting directors, TV networks and magazines.

"Cheryl's always wanted to be huge in the US, and her new relationship is helping her get there. She's been given a second chance and she's grabbing it with both hands. She wants to be as big as Adele."

Whether or not these rumours have any truth to them is up for debate, but one thing that's for sure? They did look hella cute at Cannes.

Let us know what you reckon after watching some actual moving footage of them on the red carpet:
