Cheryl 'ready to move on after Liam Payne breakup'

Cheryl is reportedly keeping herself busy in the wake of her split from Liam Payne.

The pair, who share 16-month-old son Bear, called time on their romance last month (Jul18), after two years together.

While Cheryl has been carefully plotting her career comeback after taking some time off to enjoy life as a mum, friends claim she's also ready to throw herself back into the social scene after witnessing 24-year-old Liam enjoying the company of different women.

"Cheryl is booking up her diary and getting some fun things planned with Nicola (Roberts, her Girls Aloud bandmate), as well as her manager and close friend Lily England," an insider told British magazine Closer. "She can see that Liam is happily moving on which, of course, is hurtful - but it's also a stark reminder that no one's irreplaceable, not even Liam, and she realises she's got to put herself first again, too. Her inner circle have noticed a real change in her recently - she's excited to let her hair down and be open to meeting different types of men."

The source also stated that the 35-year-old is "over the worst" of her breakup and is getting back to her "happy" self.

It's even been reported that her former The X Factor boss Simon Cowell has plans to set her up with a new love interest.

"Her close friends reckon she'll be receptive to Simon's offer to play Cupid for her and some of her inner circle are even persuading her to get on the celebrity dating app Raya, which she finds scary but hasn't completely ruled out either," the insider added.
