Did Liam Payne and Cheryl Fernandez-Versini confirm relationship rumours?

Apparently, posting hints on Instagram is more fun than saying "Yes, we're dating"

Are Liam Payne and Cheryl Cole aka Cheryl Fernandez-Versini actually dating? From the looks of the cheeky snaps the duo have been posting on Instagram, the possibility is huge.

Liam Payne first sparked relationship rumours last week when he posted a (now deleted) snap of them both together. Then, Cheryl posted a selfie yesterday with a mystery man's arm on her shoulder. Needless to say, the internet went wild. There's even a Twitter account dedicated to the pair.

The singer later on posted another photo, this time of her standing in front of three men, one of them being rumoured beau Liam. Her caption suggests that any one of these men could be the owner of the mystery arm.

Liam also shared another selfie of them together, a selfie that came right after Cheryl's post. If you look closely, you'll notice that she is wearing the same jacket she wore in the previous photo where the mystery guy's face can't be seen. (It's Liam.) And it looks like the two photos were taken in the same car. (Oh, it's Liam alright.). 

According to The Sun, they've been close friends since Cheryl signed onto One Direction's management company and only got together late last year. Could this series of photos be the confirmation we've been looking for? (Okay, just admit it, guys. It's definitely Liam.) We'll have to wait and see.
