A source said: ‘Liam has always had strong feelings for Danielle and was gutted when they split all those years ago.

Liam appeared to suffer a nosebleed as he headed home from his night out on Monday.
The singer was out celebrating after captaining the England team for Soccer Aid, which took place on Sunday at the London Stadium.
Danielle and Liam broke up in 2012 following a two-year romance – four years before he got together with Cheryl, 38, who’s the mother of his son, Bear, 5.
The pair reportedly called time on their relationship after struggling to make things work long-distance while Liam toured with One Direction amidst the height of their fame.

During an interview in October 2012, Liam admitted he was ‘devastated’ by the couple’s separation.
He said: ‘I am really devastated by the breakup with Danielle. We had an amazing time together, but unfortunately sometimes things don’t go as planned.’
In 2016, after Liam went public with Cheryl, Danielle said she knew her ex had a ‘thing’ for dating older women.
She said: ‘I’m five years older than him so I know that he maybe has a thing for age gaps. I mean look at her, I’d go out with her.’

Earlier this month, Liam admitted having a child with Cheryl ‘ruined their relationship but for all the right reasons.’
He revealed for the first time that Cheryl haemorrhaged during birth, and he was responsible for taking care of Bear for the first 24 hours of his life.
Speaking on Logan Paul’s podcast, he said: ‘To be honest with you it ruined a relationship for me but for all the right reasons.
It’s like you think kids is a blank page, they’re born, I mean when Bear was first born, I was so excited for him to be born I thought “what if I don’t love him enough?” It was such a worry for me.
‘And his mum she had haemorrhaged quite badly in birth, so she was asleep the whole day so for the first 24 hours of his life.
‘I was 23 with a baby in the room and I had to take care of it, and I didn’t have any babysitters or anything, so it was very fun but by the end of the night it finished with me and a PlayStation controller and my little boy on my arm and I’m playing FIFA like this is the coolest thing ever.’
