Liam Payne surprised fans on Friday afternoon after he shared a rare shirtless picture of himself on social media. The One Direction star - who is in a relationship with Cheryl - took to his Instagram page to post the snap, which has since garnered over 400,00 likes in less than two hours.

1D fans immediately swooned over the 23-year-old's impeccably toned physique. In the black and white image, which was simply captioned "downtime," the singer can be seen posing in front of a mirror inside a gym as he flexed his muscles and proudly displayed his tattooed body.

Over the past few weeks, Liam has been busy working hard on new material, recording his debut solo album in the US while his girlfriend - whose private life has been the subject of much speculation - has been busy promoting her first fragrance, Stormflower, back home in the UK. Liam recently shared a cryptic post on his Instagram account, asking for some "privacy". He uploaded an image of a street sign labelled 'Liam lane, private', adding in the caption: "Stay in your lane."

Liam Payne has been dating pop star Cheryl since February

Liam and Cheryl surprised fans when it first emerged that they were dating in February - despite their ten-year age gap. It's been one month since the former X Factor judge's divorce was finalised from second husband Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini.

Since confirming his romance with the Girls Aloud beauty, Liam has often taken to his social media pages to declare his love for Cheryl. He recently shared a sweet message while he was busy working in Los Angeles - a photo of a sign, which read: "The only lie I ever told is that I liked you when I already knew I loved you."
