Liam Paynes sister Ruth turned up to support Cheryl at her first arena show since her comeback.
Taking to Twitter, Ruth tweeted Cheryl from the crowd at the Manchester Arena, saying: Good luck tonight @CherylOfficial ! Smash it.
Like us, fans were absolutely living for it.

Another added: Ugh… What a supportive family.
Cheryl is performing for The Hits Live in Manchester, turning up in a sequinned leotard outfit and fishnet tights.
Shes set to perform on a line-up including Little Mix, The Vamps and Ellie Goulding.
Cheryl and Liam announced their split back in July 2018, after three years of dating. They share a son, Bear, whos a year old.
At the time, 35-year-old Cheryl tweeted a statement, saying: We are sad to announce that we are going our separate ways. Its been a tough decision for us to make.
We still have so much love for each other as a family. Bear is our world and we ask that you respect his privacy as we navigate our way through this together.
Since, shes had a controversial comeback, releasing her new song Love Made Me Do It, which plummeted to number 48 in the charts.
However, after performing on The X Factor, many viewers werent convinced, with some branding it awful.
The whole thing was just quite awkward.
However, being her fierce self, the singer hit back at the vicious comments, saying: Having spent 16 years in the public eye I have always been accepting of peoples opinions. Me personally, my music and performances are never going to be for everyone. And thats OK.

I let a lot of things lie but the sheer level of unbalanced negativity towards me in the tabloid press these past few days has been quite frankly shocking and I need to address it. This level of relentless abuse should not be tolerated in any walk of life.
From my appearance, my body size and shape to my performance and even dragging innocent people into this like they did to Nile Rodgers simply for a clickbait headline is totally uncalled for. It also gives the trolls a bigger voice and platform.
