It's been almost a month since Cheryl and Liam Payne announced their split. The couple are believed to have started dating in late 2015, and they stayed together for more than two years before deciding to separate this summer. However, friends of the singer have reportedly been suggesting that a new match could be on the scene. So who is Cheryl dating?

Well, according to The Sun, Cheryl's friends think they've found her perfect match: Adam, the brother of her Girls Aloud bandmate Kimberley Walsh. The newspaper claims, "Cheryl's pals think Kimberley Walsh’s 'hot' brother Adam is her 'perfect man' following her split from Liam Payne," quoting an unnamed source who explained, "Cheryl sees him quite a bit due to her friendship with Kimberley and he’s obviously someone she can trust and be herself with him." Sounds promising, doesn't it?

Although this must be the first you've head of the rumour, Cheryl and Adam actually go way back. The pair reportedly met in the early days of Girls Aloud, and Cheryl has always had plenty of positive things to say about him. According to The Sun, in an interview that dates back to the early '00s, Cheryl said of Adam: "We’d never met before but we just clicked and everything’s going great. He’s like the male version of me and we’re getting along just fine."

Adam is a fashion designer and a manufacturer who recently launched a children's clothing line with his sister Kimberley, as reported by The Sun. If he looks familiar, that might be because you've seen him on TV: in addition to appearing on Loose Women, according to Closer, Adam also featured in TV series Heartbeat, before he ditched acting to work in the fashion industry full-time. You might have also spotted him on his sister’s Instagram:
