A new video has emerged of Cheryl and Liam Payne that has fans saying it's the moment they fell in love.

New footage from last year's X Factor final sees Cheryl and Liam exchange a tender moment - two months before it was confirmed that they were dating.

The video sees Cheryl, who was a judge on the show at the time, dancing to Jason Derulo's Talk Dirty to Me when Liam approaches her.

In the brief encounter, Liam (23) tenderly touches Cheryl's waist, while she rests her hand on his arm.

Liam then walks away and the former Girls Aloud star is left smiling broadly.

The video has emerged one year on from the final, during which Liam performed with One Direction for the last time before they went on a break.

"Little did we know that they were actually dating," wrote one Twitter user alongside the video.

The pair have been in a relationship since the start of this year, and are said to be expecting their first child together, although Cheryl (33) has not yet officially announced that she is pregnant, despite stepping out with a blooming baby bump.

Cheryl and Liam first met in 2008 when he auditioned for the X Factor panel, on which she was a judge.

Liam was 14 years old at the time, while Cheryl was married to footballer Ashley Cole.
