Liam Payne hasn't long been single, but after flirting up a storm on Instagram with Naomi Campbell, it turns out they're an item!

The former One Direction star has reportedly been dating the model for two months, with the pair being pictured at the O2 in London last weekend and spending New Years Eve together in Ghana.

Naomi, who split from ex-boyfriend Skepta last August, shared a hilarious video of Liam dancing with actress Eku Edewor on New Years Eve, while she also wasn't scared to wear her heart on her sleeve when she left a flirty comment on Liam's Instagram.

When Liam, who split from Cheryl last July, did his best blue steel impression in a modelling shot he shared on the social media site, Naomi told him he had a "beautiful soul" alongside a heart emoji.

He didn't waste time replying, hitting back, "Takes one to know one".

Meanwhile the singer shared the love when he left a comment on one of her recent selfies, writing, "Perfection in a person. Don't give me those eyes." Oo-er!

While the pair rung in New Years together, they enjoyed another date at the O2 arena last Sunday, watching Nigerian singer Davido Adeleke.

That night, the pair attempted to hide their romance, with a source telling Daily Star Online, "Liam and Naomi were keen to keep a low profile. They entered and exited the arena via the back door and were quickly whisked up to a VIP suite on Level 3.

"Naomi was more than happy to pose for official pictures inside the venue but didn't have a single one with Liam.

"After the show they left together in the back of a blacked-out green Range Rover and Liam was seen putting his arm around Naomi's waist."

Now it seems they're ready to take things to the next level, as this weekend a source revealed, "Liam thinks she's amazing and beautiful, and has said their intimate time together has been mind-blowing.

"He can't believe his luck."
