Cheryl appeared to make a playful jibe at her ex Liam Payne on Saturday’s The Greatest Dancer, as she was unimpressed by his FaceTime call as part of a social network-themed routine.
Drafting in some of her celebrity pals, the songstress implemented the video messages into a dance by street dance group the Frobacks, with Liam leaving her stoney-faced after saying he would rather talk to the group.
The hilarious cameo comes amid rumours that Liam is now dating supermodel Naomi Campbell, with sources claiming that the pair have been involved in a ‘mind-blowing’ romance.

In the closing routine, Frobacks implemented social media into their dance, and even welcomed in a few surprise guests who appeared through FaceTime calls.
First was Little Mix star Perrie Edwards, who gushed that she would have to perform with the group sometime.
And next was Liam, who sparked a thunderous response from viewers as this name appeared on the screen, with Cheryl holding her phone close to hand as part of the display.

However it seemed Liam was uninterested in calling to chat about their son Bear, instead asking her to pass the phone over to the Frobacks.
He then went on to gush: ‘Hey man, you guys are killing it. I’d love you to teach me some tricks sometime so make sure you get my number of Chez.’
Luckily Cheryl took the moment in good humour as she played up her unimpressed response, ending the call so the dance could continue.

As the group’s display came to a close they were also joined by X Factor judge Robbie Williams, who went on to share his support for the group.
The dance sent fans into tailspin as many were thrilled to hear that Cheryl and Liam were still on good terms, seven months after they announced their split.
Last month Cheryl revealed that they have remained on extremely good terms, and even spent Christmas together along with their one-year-old son.
Speaking to The Sun, she said: ‘There’s no animosity whatsoever. In fact, Liam spent Christmas Day with us. He cooked the turkey and everything at our home. His family came on the 23rd, and then he was in the house before I woke up on Christmas Day.’

It comes amid rumours that Liam has been dating supermodel Naomi Campbell, with sources telling The Sun On Sunday that they have been having a ‘mind-blowing’ time.
The pair were first publicly spotted with each other when they attended a concert at the O2, in London on January 28 — but they rung in the New Year together, partying in Ghana.
And recently it was revealed that Naomi was the photographer being a gym Instagram snap he posted with chains around his neck, although she is currently in solo in New York for the star-studded Fashion Week.

While Cheryl’s imaginative concept went down a storm at home, the judges offered a more constructive response, with Matthew suggesting the calls distracted from the actual dancing.
Oti agreed, adding: ‘I’m a huge huge fan, but I feel that because of gimmicks you guys stopped dancing and I really wanted to see more of you guys dancing.
‘You’re amazing and I really enjoy watching you, I want to see more.’
Despite a mixed reception to the dance, Cheryl bounced back at the start of the show following a slight stumble last week, busting a move with her acts in an ab-flashing crop top.
The stunning songstress took to the stage after a source told MailOnline that she stumbled in last week’s routine, but ever the pro managed to soldier on.

Meanwhile Prospects Fraternity went back to school for a tables-themed dance, but sadly earned a mixed reception from the panel for repeating old ideas.
Cheryl said: ‘It’s an energy thing it’s a vibe, not ever move was perfect and that’s fine, the fact that you can flip off a desk, it’s so good.
‘I love the symmetry that really does good things for my brain. But, the table thing I have seen it done before.
Oti agreed: ‘You guys always represent street dance really well, I agree with Cheryl if you are gonna do school kids, do it well, make sure it’s tight, but you guys are amazing.’
James and Oliver also struggled to win over the panel with a Les Miserable-themed dance, as they were criticised for a lack of synchronicity.

Next was Company Jinks, who decided to go for a modern twist on a classic as they dressed up as Toys, and Cheryl couldn’t help but gush about their dance.
She said: ‘The choreography for me was so fresh I love it I am such a fan, I find myself sitting there thinking I need to learn those moves.’
