Liam Payne and Maya Henry have sparked rumours of a reunion after the former couple were recently pictured together at a bar in Buckinghamshire.
The 27-year-old former One Direction heartthrob, who called off his engagement last month, was spotted sipping on cocktails with his ex-fiancée at the Crazy Bear Hotel pool area before jumping into a Rolls-Royce with pals.
According to The Sun, the former couple appeared to be ‘flirting’ and didn’t try to hide how close they were before leaving the luxurious venue together.
An insider also explained to the publication: “They were touching each other all the time. Stroking arms and flirting. I’d say it was heavy petting. He even had his arm around her at one point.
“They didn’t kiss but they were sat right out in the open and it wasn’t like they were hiding the fact they were together from what I could see. They didn’t seem to care who saw them. Then they left together.”
A picture captured by the source also featured the exes heading toward a car outside the fancy bar and eatery.
A representative for Liam has been approached by The Mirror for comment.
Liam and Maya’s romantic-looking get-together came over a month and a half after the musician confirmed that they had split after a 10-month engagement.
Liam and Maya were first linked in August 2018 after the singer had split from the mother of his child, Cheryl Tweedy. In 2020, Maya was spotted with a huge diamond ring on her finger before the couple confirmed that they were engaged.
However, after ten months it appears that their engagement took a turn for the worse as they struggled to make the romance work.
The One Direction star admitted after his split that he needed to work on himself before committing to a relationship.

He also insinuated that it was his decision to put an end to their romance so he could deal with his own behaviour.
Speaking to Steven Barlett on Diary of a CEO back in June, the dad of one explained: “I feel like more than anything at this point, I’m more disappointed in myself that I keep on hurting people. That annoys me. I’ve just not been very good at relationships.”
“And I know what my pattern of things is with relationships at this point.
He added: “I’m just not very good at them so I just need to work on myself before I put myself on to somebody else.”
