“It’s very, very relaxed, and we spend a lot of time on FaceTime.
“And it’s been really lovely, and I’m closer to them than I’ve ever been before, actually, which is really, really nice.
“But bedtime FaceTime can go really well sometimes. Or I bought him some toys yesterday that I showed them on the FaceTime and it was like I had to travel over and hand the toys over the fence!,” he explained.
Liam and Cheryl, 37, began dating in 2016, but their two-year relationship came to an end in 2018.
