It appears there could be another heartbreak in One Direction.

Liam Payne and long-term love Sophia Smith have split, according to reports.

The singer is said to be "heartbroken" at ending their relationship.

Rumours began circulating about their romantic status after the fivesome were forced to cancel their first gig in five years, a sold-out concert in Belfast on Tuesday night. A statement released by the band said Liam had fallen suddenly ill and many fans were quick to blame heartbreak as the cause.

i love you more and more every day. #stop #the #rumours

The pair, who have been dating for two years, were among the more low-key couples in showbiz, but regularly shared loved-up snaps on social media.

The pair first met at secondary school, but their friendship turned to romance in 2013.
