The 23-year-old singer was spotted celebrating in the VIP section of a DJ Zedd show in Sin City over the weekend, just a few days after the 'Only Human' hitmaker's separation from Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini was made official.

Taking to Instagram to post a selfie before the show, the One Direction singer wrote: "It's about to get lit #vegas (sic)"

In another photo posted after the event, he wrote: "Great fun tonight impromptu sing along with my brother @zedd let's get it #vegas (sic)"

The 'History' hitmaker - who is rumoured to be expecting his first child with Cheryl - was pictured at the event enjoying drinks and dancing along to the music whilst he chatted to the girls who stood around him.

The news of Liam's party mood comes after Cheryl, 33, finalised her divorce from the French restaurateur after 18 months of marriage.

The former couple were granted a quickie divorce on Thursday (20.10.16) during a hearing that lasted just 14 seconds, after the judge at the Central Family Court in London handed them a decree nisi, which is a court order confirming the date on which a marriage will end.

A representative for Cheryl said in a statement: "Cheryl Fernandez-Versini and Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini have today obtained Decree Nisi in their divorce proceedings. No further comment will be made and they ask for their privacy to be respected."

The pair tied the knot in a secret ceremony on Macaroni Beach in Mustique in July 2014, just three months after they started dating, and the former Girls Aloud musician first announced their split in January this year.

The former 'X Factor' judge has been dating Liam - who has recently started recording material for his debut solo album - for almost a year, and fellow talent show judge Louis Walsh has said the pair will last.

He said previously: "Can I be honest with you about Cheryl? I think Liam and Cheryl are going to work... He's a nice guy and he's in love with her. He'll make her happy."
