It’s weird to think that power couple Cheryl and Liam Payne met when the former One Direction singer was only 14-years-old, and apparently it’s something that Chez isn’t too keen on being reminded about, either.

Speaking to Nick Grimshaw on Friday's Radio 1 Breakfast Show, the Strip That Down singer was asked about how their first meeting during the X-Factor auditions when Liam was just a youngen’, to which Paynos quickly replied,

“She doesn’t like to talk about that..”

Yikes.

Nick later joked that the star “was only 12”, to which Liam replied,

“[Cheryl's] going to be really offended that you called me 12 by the way.”

It comes after the 23-year-old hottie, who just released his super saucy music video for his debut single, revealed he’s always had a bit of the thing for the former Girls Aloud singer, who is ten years his senior,

“I always, always had a crush on her. I got back to school the next day and when my friends saw it they were literally ripping the p* out of me.”

Guess Liam's the one who got the last laugh there!
