Members of the public took to Twitter to share snippets of the conversation from backstage at B96 Radio Station on Wednesday.

Liam, 23, is no doubt missing Cheryl and their young son. He is currently in the middle of a promotional tour in the US to promote his new music. On Wednesday, he shared a funny video with fans taken on board his private plane, showing him dozing off in his seat, before bursting out into dance when one of his favourite tracks comes on. It's not the first time Liam has spoken about fatherhood. During an outing in LA last month, the pop star told fan Pedro Ramirez: "He's great, he's good. I love him and I miss him a lot."
