However it seems that Liam isn't simply working out for himself, rather to impress a certain lady in his life.

That wouldn't be Leona Lewis would it Liam?

A regular at Liam's gym said: "He's been down a lot more lately and has started asking some of the lads for tips and pointers.

"He said he'll be taking his new girlfriend away when he gets the chance and wants to be fit."

And apparently Liam has also taken to drinking protein shakes in a bid to get big fast.

Well it must be serious.

Let's just hope he doesn't do an Eoghan Quigg on us.

Neither Liam nor Leona has publicly admitted that they are an item but insiders say that the two have been seriously dating for a month.

In recent interview with Look magazine, Leona Lewis admitted that the most important attribute in a partner is maturity.

She said: "If you have a bond with someone it [age] doesn't come into it. I'd date someone younger or older, age doesn't matter to me. Or looks, really — it's all about maturity."

Well if this is the case Liam, we wouldn't bother spending every waking hour in the gym.

The 'Bleeding Love' singer was also extremely coy when asked whether she had been on a date with the One Direction singer.

She said: "I'm not saying. I'm having fun and enjoying myself."

We eagerly await the holiday snaps.
