Liam Payne looks dapper as he joins glamorous girlfriend Maya Henry at jewellery event... after revealing he battled suicidal thoughts when loneliness 'sent him to a bad place'

He revealed he had battled suicidal thoughts during a heartbreaking appearance on Straight Talking with Ant Middleton on Tuesday night.

And Liam Payne made his first public appearance since the show aired as he supported girlfriend Maya Henry at the Bvlgari launch celebration for the Save The Children 'Give Hope' campaign on Wednesday. 

The One Direction singer, 26, cut a dapper figure as he posed with his glamorous model girlfriend, 19, at the festive event.

Strip That Down singer Liam flashed his toned chest in an unbuttoned white shirt paired with silver chains.

He teamed this with black baggy trousers and shoes as he wrapped an arm around his love,

Maya went braless beneath a striking scarlet blazer with fuchsia pink lapels as she embraced Liam.

She adorned her decolletage with a sparkling crystal pendant and matching earrings.

The beauty drew the eye to her lithe legs in a pair of striking flares and boosted her frame with silver stilettos.

Her tresses were pulled back into a chic chignon while her pretty features were enhanced with a rich palette of make-up.  

The sighting comes one day after the singer appeared on Straight Talking, where he opened up about his mental health, fame, his relationship with ex Cheryl and their two-year-old son Bear, and his time in One Direction.

When asked about his 'darker' moments, Liam said: 'Fame is like having a weird midlife crisis .I am lucky to be here still.'  

Asked by Ant, 38, to elaborate, Liam was reluctant at first.

'I can’t go too deep into it, I haven’t made my peace with it...' he said.

Make a bold statement like Maya wearing Ralph & Russo

Wearing red and pink together has become a go-to statement for celebrities including Katie Piper, Mandy Moore and Lorraine Kelly, so it’s no surprise to see Maya Henry taking on the trend.

The model attended a jewellery event with beau Liam Payne, but we only had eyes for Maya’s bold suit by Ralph and Russo.

The tailored red jacket is designed with striking pink lapels whilst the silk straight-leg trousers feature the pink on the waistband. The two-piece suit, which Maya wore with gold metallic pumps, hails from the SS19 collection and is sadly no longer available.

However, if you want to dress up like Maya this festive season, then peruse our picks to recreate her look. We’ve covered all budgets with look-alikes by Zara, Damsel in a Dress and Next.

But eventually, Ant coaxed him into saying more, as they chatted in the middle of the Southern African game country.

'There’s times where that level of loneliness and people getting into you every day every so often… that’s almost nearly killed me a couple of times.  

'I’ve been in a bad place… it’s been on the menu a couple of times in my life. Luckily I had great people around me. When things start to pile up on you it can get you, and you can only control you. You have to get on with it

'You think there’ll be another hurdle in a couple of months, you just need to get on with it. It’s always turned out alright, even in the darkest situations.'

Ant - who stars on SAS: Who Dares Wins, and is an expert in interrogation - pressed Liam on his highly-publicised relationship with pop star Cheryl - which ended last year.

Liam seemed much happier talking about this chapter of his life, saying: 'It’s not the most normal situation. My life is abnormal, so what is normal? We genuinely get on, there are so many parallels we share in life.'

 He went on: 'I hope she’s happy, she deserves it, she’s a great mum, she works hard, she deserves to find happiness. I have thought long and hard about [her moving on with someone else]. We will find our own peace with it, for now, it’s good. I go over, do whatever, watch TV, it’s good, it’s nice.'

As they were: Liam found fame with 1D in 2010 alongside Zayn Malik, Niall Horan, Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson. Zayn [pictured top left] famously left in 2015, and the band split in 2016
