He released his debut album on Friday – two years after launching his solo career.

So Liam Payne was naturally in high spirits as he celebrated with his girlfriend Maya Henry at Ours restaurant in Kensington.

The former One Direction star, 26, beamed as he made his way home hand-in-hand with his 19-year-old girlfriend.

Liam donned a colourful ensemble for the occasion – pairing a denim jacket with a salmon pink t-shirt, maroon chinos and navy boots.

He displayed a glimpse of his extensive tattoos as he held onto Maya’s hand.

Meanwhile, Maya looked subdued in a black dress and polka dot tights as she held onto a large coat with a houndstooth pattern and faux fur collar.  

Also at the event was Rita Ora and television personality Vas J Morgan, 31, who was seen carrying a two-foot by two-foot image of Liam’s album cover.

The celebration comes after Liam’s fans were left outraged by what they said was ‘fetishising’ bisexuality in his single Both Ways from the album LP1.

In the song’s lyrics Liam appears to reference an unidentified woman’s sexuality while singing: ‘Flipping that body, go head, I go tails / Sharing that body like it’s our last meal.’ 

The song didn’t go down well with listeners, with many claiming they felt ‘uncomfortable’ with the ‘stereotypes’.

Others referenced the irony of the lyrics following his alleged ‘homophobic’ comments against former bandmate Harry Styles back in 2015. The fury catapulted online as #LiamPayneIsOverParty started to trend on Twitter.

Comments included the likes of: ‘As a bisexual woman, it was extremely uncomfortable reading the lyrics to ‘both ways’ by liam payne. 

‘He fetishizes the fact that a woman likes boys and girls, and he even mentions bi women in threesomes which furthers the stereotype that all bi ppl are only into that.’

Another said: ‘I have no words. i genuinely expected better from someone like liam payne, but the fact that he is adding to the constant stereotypes and the fetishism towards bi women is completely unacceptable. i am very disappointed @liampayne.’

Inkings: He displayed a glimpse of his extensive tattoos as a floral  inking on the back of his hand could be seen while he held onto Maya's hand

One added: ‘Agree completely. I’m really really uncomfortable w/this. Bisexual or pansexual women are not some sideshow act for men to watch. This is bad. I’m actually really skeeved out.’

‘Liam payne fetishized bisexual women in his new album after belittling men for showing any femininity… n e ways stream adore you by harry styles#liampayneisoverpartyً,’ another said.

Another one was so outraged they capped up their tweet: ‘BI WOMEN ARENT FOR SEXUAL PLEASURE BI MEN ARE NOT FOR SEXUAL PLEASURE BI TRANS ARE NOT FOR SEXUAL PLEASURE BI NON BINARIES ARE NOT FOR SEXUAL PLEASURE NO ONE IS #liampayneisoverparty.’ 

Liam revealed in a prior interview that his former bandmate Harry would be his ‘last choice’ to babysit his child Bear – who he shares with ex, Cheryl.

‘I couldn’t rely on Harry ’cause I feel like my child would come out dressed in something that I just wouldn’t understand,’ Liam said, much to the horror of fans.

Jessica Rowe wowed fans with her incredible bikini body while appearing on The Real Dirty Dancing earlier this year. 

And now, the 49-year-old journalist and published author has revealed the very sensible secrets to her sensational figure. 

Speaking to Body and Soul magazine on Sunday, the mother-of-two revealed she doesn’t believe in ‘extreme’ dieting.

‘Trying to be super healthy all the time or eating too much rubbish all the time will never work long-term,’ Jess said, adding it’s better to meet in the ‘middle’. 

The former Studio Ten host, instead, said she tries to eat healthily for the majority of the time, but still believes in indulging in sugary chocolate. 

‘I eat well most of the time, but I also love a bit of chocolate in bed at night,’ she said, happy to practice what she preaches.  

Far from feeling guilty, Jess said she enjoys her indulgences.

‘If I don’t let myself have chocolate, I feel like I’m depriving myself and then I eat too much,’ she said.  

Jessica explained she was raised on fresh fruit and vegetables, but her parents often let their children eat chocolate biscuits.     

She said she strives to raise her own children, Allegra, 12, and Giselle, 10, with the same habits, instilling a healthy relationship with food.

She's still got it! Jess (pictured) revealed that she tries to do a Pilates class once a week, while speaking to Now to Love earlier this year

Jessica sent fans into a frenzy when she stripped down for reality show The Real Dirty Dancing earlier this year. 

In an interview with The Morning Show in September, Jessica confessed she felt insecure going on the reality show.

‘I found it very confronting, and I didn’t expect that would happen… So for me to shed my inhibitions and shed my gear was hard,’ she confessed.

Jess admitted that being a mother to her two daughters, made her conscious of the way in which she presented herself to the world.

‘I’m a mum, I’m married, I’ve got two young girls – and when you’re responsible you think you have to be a particular way,’ she said, adding ‘you do lose yourself.’
