Cheryl and Liam Payne looked smitten and posed up a storm on the Brits red carpet, just days after it was rumoured that the couple are holding 'crisis talks' over their two-year relationship.

Media reports at the weekend claimed that the couple- who are parents to 11-month-old son Bear - were on the verge of splitting up, but judging by their united front at Wednesday's award ceremony, it seems that the pair are doing just fine.

Fighting for their love

The Fight for this Love singer was all smiles on the red carpet, while the former 1D star was spotted gazing into his partner's eyes and playfully whispering into her ear.

Cheryl held up a white rose in support of the anti-sexual harassment campaign Time's Up that has made its way to the Brits after being a fixture at film award ceremonies the Baftas and the Golden Globes.

Payne, who was nominated for British single and British artist video of the year, performed his single For You, from the Fifty Shades Freed soundtrack, during the ceremony with Rita Ora.

However, he lost out to fellow One Direction star Harry Styles in the video category, who triumphed with Sign of the Times, while Rag'n'Bone Man won British single for Human.
