The love story between Cheryl Fernandez-Versini and toyboy Liam Payne appears to be going from strength to strength, if their Instagram accounts are anything to go by.

The One Directioner deleted the new couple’s official Insty snap after Cheryl, 32, received a barrage of abuse from her 22-year-old lover’s die-hard fans.

But Liam has shaken off the haters with a new selfie of himself and Cheryl, just hours after she defied his female fan base by sharing a few shots of her own.

Cheryl posted her own selfie with an unidentified arm wrapped around her shoulders, so after three hours of fans playing guessing games, she gave them a hint with a ‘mystery man line up’, featuring a smitten Liam and two unlikely male companions.

Liam then followed it up with a super-cute snap from the back of a car. Aww.

It’s been just four days since this surprise couple made their public debut via Instagram, and less than two months since Cheryl split with her husband of under two years, Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini.

Liam split with his long-time love, Sophia Smith, in October last year.
