Awkward! One Direction star bumps into his ex-girlfriend at a party!

There’s nothing worse than bumping into your ex, no matter how famous you are.

But One Direction’s Harry Styles managed not to flee the scene when his former flame Caroline Flack showed up at the same showbiz party.

Harry and Xtra Factor presenter Caroline both turned up at their mutual pal Lou Teasdale’s book launch party at London’s Shoreditch on the release of her DIY hair and beauty manual The Craft.

Well, at least Taylor Swift didn’t make an appearance too.

The pair caused scandal when they began dating in October 2011, due to their 14-year age difference.

However, following their split in January 2012, Caroline insisted that their relationship was just a bit of fun and that they planned to stay friends.

“It was just really fun to hang out… I don’t think we were ever going to have a long-term future,” said Caroline. “It was fun and it was hurting nobody… [Breaking up] was fine. And now we’re friends.”
