The Greatest Dancer coach Cheryl did not look happy on Saturday night when ex Liam Payne FaceTimed her during dance troupe Froback’s performance.
However, on Saturday night the Girls Aloud star didn’t look too impressed by her ex boyfriend’s surprise appearance on The Greatest Dancer.
As dance troupe Froback took to the stage, a number of famous faces – including Little Mix’s Perrie Edwards and icon Robbie Williams – appeared via FaceTime to show their support for the performers as the theme for the night was social network.
While Froback danced to Liam’s Strip That Down, the One Direction star himself appeared on the screen after video calling his ex girlfriend.
Cheryl looked less than impressed with the call, sitting straight-faced as she turned her phone to the camera.
Liam – who is currently enjoying a fling with model Naomi Campbell – rang into the show to show his support for Froback, telling his ex: “Chez can you put the Frobacks on please?”
He then told the lads: “Hey man, you guys are killing it! I’d love you to teach me some tricks some time so make sure you get my number off Chez, okay?”
The Greatest Dancer fans loved the awkward moment, with hundreds flocking to Twitter to praise the couple.

Former couple Cheryl and Liam dated for two and a half years before their split last summer, but they’ve remained on positive terms ever since.
Liam is thought to have moved on with model Naomi Campbell after they were first spotted on a night out in London at the end of January.
