Back in 2008, as a 14-year-old, Payne first auditioned for Simon Cowell on X Factor, and though he didn't win the whole thing, he made the cut out of the first round… in part thanks to a "cheeky" wink thrown Cheryl's way!!!
Obviously this was now nearly a decade ago, but it seems like there's always been something of a connection between these two now maybe-lovebirds?!
What do U think of that clip??
