Six months on from her split from Liam Payne, TV star Cheryl has opened up about her heartache as she talked about moving on with her life goals. The 35-year-old, who is currently a judge on The Greatest Dancer, told MailOnline: "I hate the lows... I hate the lows. It's kind of one of the things that makes us not want to get into a relationship. Nothing quite makes you feel like that, does it? Nothing else." Cheryl and her ex-boyfriend Liam welcomed their son Bear into the world in March 2017. The former lovebirds announced their split in July this year, after two-and-a-half years together.

When asked about finding love again, Cheryl replied: "I wouldn't say I've given up on love. I love, love. But I have paused my relationship goals. All is well. I'm just going with the flow, but I have no plans to meet anybody anytime soon." Despite the break-up, both Cheryl and Liam remain on the best of terms. "There's no animosity whatsoever," she added. "We are learning all the time. And it's good, it's healthy. We're just like any other couple that have gone through this."
