A friend of the couple said: ‘This is make or break time. ‘Their relationship has been in serious trouble for several weeks and Liam feels a holiday together with Bear will do them the world of good.

‘He’s kept the location a closely guarded secret and only Cheryl and their closest family know where they’re headed. One thing is certain, Liam plans to spoil Cheryl rotten for two weeks.’

Last week, Liam broke his silence on claims his relationship with Cheryl was ‘effectively over’ a week before the BRIT Awards 2018 .

However, Cheryl, 34, was livid he spoke publicly about their relationship and warned him not to do it again. She was also annoyed when pictures emerged of Liam cosying up to Katy Perry, 33, in Japan, while Cheryl was left at home.

The duo previously confronted the claims with a rare joint appearance in a public demonstration of their ‘rock-hard’ relationship.

Yet their overly-affectionate outing in late February raised eyebrows with many, as multiple insiders had come forward to say that they were ‘hanging by a thread’.

‘For me,’ he continued. ‘I just like to think we’re somewhere in the middle. You know, we have our struggles — like of course I’m not gonna sit here and say that everything’s absolutely fine and dandy, because of course you go through different things, and that’s what a relationship is.’ 

He went on to say that their rough patch was inevitable but they were focusing on riding the storm ‘together’.

A source subsequently told MailOnline that Cheryl was spending a lot of time at home on her own with Bear because she would rather stay in watching soaps on TV than go out to showbiz parties.

Concerned fans had pointed out that the couple had not been pictured together for some time, until their PDA-laden outing at the BRITs, which followed a week later.

With Liam away from the home regularly, Cheryl has also admitted that she has found parenthood ‘challenging’ in Bear’s first year.

Cheryl told The Mirror: ‘It’s challenging, that’s for sure, but when you’re with him it makes none of that relevant.’
