Wrapping an arm around Cairo with her hand placed suggestively on his bottom, the former One Direction hunk looked loved-up again after enjoying lunch at the posh Villa D'Este hotel – leaving hand-in-hand and passionately kissing in their waiting car.

Liam, 24, had previously been seen flirting with the 20-year-old American last month while out partying with friends at Medusa nightclub in Cannes on the French Riviera.

But The Sun’s exclusive snaps taken this weekend confirm he is enjoying a new romance after ending his two-and-a-half year relationship with Cheryl, with whom he has one-year-old son Bear.

An onlooker said: “There’s no doubt Liam and Cairo are more than just friends.

“They were kissing passionately with his hand wrapped around the back of her head and they obviously couldn’t get enough of each other.

“They were walking around the hotel grounds hand in hand, he had his arm around her a lot and she had her hand on his bum.

“They’re obviously massively into each other.”

On Monday Liam returned home to London, where he was mobbed by fans outside the Capital FM studios in Leicester Square.

Just last week he was seen enjoying an intimate night out at London’s Bvlgari hotel with millionaire heiress Maya Henry, 18 – sparking rumours he could be dating again.

A month earlier the pair were snapped together at the Dolce and Gabbana gala dinner and again partying aboard a friend’s luxury yacht in Cannes – and Liam has met her family.

But friends said that although he and Maya have enjoyed nights out together, the singer is not ready for another serious relationship.

Meanwhile Cheryl, 35, appears determined to take a break from romance and focus on looking after her son and career after her split from Liam – furiously shooting down unfounded rumours that she was secretly dating a new man from within the showbiz industry.

After reports appeared in a gossip magazine, a spokesman for the star shut down speculation by labelling talk of a new romance “ridiculous”.

She and Liam shocked the entertainment world when The Sun revealed they were secretly dating back in early 2016 – eight years after they had first met when Liam auditioned for The X Factor and Cheryl was a judge.

A year later they became parents together, but endured a rough patch in their relationship throughout 2018 which finally saw them confirm plans to go their separate ways in June this year.

In a statement released to The Sun, they confirmed: “We are sad to announce that we are going our separate ways. It’s been a tough decision for us to make.

“We still have so much love for each other as a family. Bear is our world and we ask that you respect his privacy as we navigate our way through this together.”
