Awkward? Ellie Goulding and her ex Dougie Poynter both attend the GQ Men of the Year Awards

Updated: 

Ellie Goulding and Dougie Poynter may have parted ways, but they will be reunited at the GQ Men of the Year Awards after both heading to the event at London's Tate Modern.

The two split earlier this year, calling off their two-year relationship - but if reports are to be believed, the two are on good terms.

The McFly star told The Sun in April that he was still hanging out with Ellie, explaining: "We love each other very much. We are the best of friends."

He turned up to the event in style.

There have been rumours that Burn singer Ellie could reunite with her ex, who has relocated to Los Angeles - but in a sarcastic tweet she dismissed speculation.

So... who knows what will happen if they run into each other tonight?
