Liam and Cheryl have been plagued by split rumours since the start of the month – with a source telling MailOnline that they are struggling to find quality time together, as they juggle their busy careers and care for their 11-month-old son, Bear.

Cheryl is thought to be spending much of her time at home on her own with Bear, because she would rather stay in watching TV than go out to showbiz parties.
The source said: ‘Cheryl basically went into hibernation when she got pregnant and has made the decision to be a stay at home mother with no nanny and is looking after bear herself. She doesn’t like going out much as she used to.’
The pair put on a united front at the BRIT Awards last week, but many accused the pair of putting on an overzealous display, and claimed their appearance was a stunt.

Despite the claims, Cheryl took to Twitter to defend her relationship with Liam on Thursday and denied that they were on the brink of a break-up.
Posting to her 6.4million followers, she wrote: ‘Oh stop no one cares who’s been speculatively arguing or not in their relationship use your platform to put something productive in your columns. I opened a centre this week that could help thousands of youth!!!!’
Before adding of their BRITs appearance: ‘…Oh and your ‘stunt’ theories are just ludicrous and a bit weird’.
Trouble ahead: Liam and Cheryl have been plagued by split rumours recently – with a source telling MailOnline that they are struggling to find quality time together, as they juggle their busy careers and care for their 11-month-old son, Bear
