The rare outing comes shortly after Cheryl attended the Prince's Trust Awards in London. Looking as stylish as ever, the former X Factor judge was dressed in a white floaty midi dress adorned with a rainbow pattern. She rubbed shoulders with the likes of Tom Hardy and Prince Charles - and even shared a snap of herself cuddled up closely to the Hollywood heartthrob. "It’s incredibly rare for Cheryl to make a fuss of any A-listers so Tom should feel chuffed," a source told The Sun. "She’s always been a huge fan and didn’t waste the opportunity to have a word." Former bandmate Nicola even weighed on the of Instagram picture, saying: "You put Tom 6th... 6th?!"

Elsewhere, Cheryl's One Direction boyfriend joked that he would be willing to trade her in for a burger in a new social media comment. The 24-year-old pop star and his girlfriend exchanged comments on Sam Smith's recent Instagram photo, which showed him eating at fast food chain In-N-Out burger in Los Angeles. Cheryl commented first, hailing the food as "the best", prompting Liam to cheekily reply: "I think I would probably give you away for one of those right now...!! Did I just type that out loud?" However, Cheryl didn't respond to his comment, despite Sam getting involved and saying the burger was "glorious".
