"I'm going to go down and see Bear, maybe cook Christmas dinner, see the family. It's the first time he really gets Christmas now," said Liam.

"I want to see if he really gets unwrapping presents this year. Otherwise it'll just be Cheryl by the tree again. I can really remember it from last year, she wrapped them all up and I was just sat there going 'Right, what is this?'"

Cheryl and Liam split up last year but continue to co-parent their young son, and the latter recently highlighted the wonders of technology as it allows him to stay in regular contact with Bear when he's away touring.

Speaking about Bear, the 26-year-old noted: "He's good at using the phone and FaceTime."

This Morning airs weekdays on ITV.
