Liam Payne has revealed he's still not forgiven Cheryl for not giving him a standing ovation during his 2010 X Factor audition.

Way back when he was just a teenager and Chezza was still a WAG going by the name of Cheryl Cole, Liam auditioned as a solo artist on The X Factor and wowed the judges with his rendition of Michael Bublé's Cry Me A River. But while Simon Cowell and co. stood up to applaud Liam for his triumphant return to the X Factor stage (he lost out on a place in the live shows in 2008), his future baby mumma remained firmly in her seat.

LOL. And Liam hasn't let it slide.

Speaking to our pals at heat radio, he joked: "I got a standing ovation from everyone except for Cheryl, which I thought was hilarious.

“She said she was having a row with Simon because he should have stood up for somebody else, so she didn’t stand up for me.

“But I’m still angry about that."

Liam didn't make it through as a solo artist but thanks to an experimental idea from Simon, was chosen along with four other lads to form a boyband. They've been quite successful since the show, you may have heard of them? One Direction?

Aside from joking about that sore subject, Liam also recently hinted that he and Cheryl might have secretly got married following the birth of their son Bear.
