Megan Barton Hanson has ‘awkward run-in with ex James Lock’ after split

Megan Barton Hanson reportedly faced a slightly "awkward" run-in with her ex beau James "Lockie" Lock following their split a couple of months ago.

The reality TV stars and former couple, who met via their intertwining lifestyles in Essex, sadly called it quits on their budding romance and Megan confirmed it hadn't "worked out" for them.

The relationship fizzled out only two weeks after their romantic trip to New York, and since then the pair are believed to have not come into contact, until an event for work.

Megan, 27, and James, 35, attended a press call for dating reality show Ex on the Beach, but according to a source things were incredibly "awkward" for the pair.

The source told The Sun: “Being stuck in a room with your ex is most people’s worst nightmare and that’s exactly what happened to Megan and James.

“It was a work job so they were both professional but it was awkward and at times you could have cut the tension with a knife.

“There was a frosty atmosphere to say the least."

During the session, TOWIE star James and Love Island beauty Megan were told to smile and pose alongside each other as they mingled around the rest of the cast, and conducted interviews.

“Megan and James were there to have their professional photographs taken with the rest of the cast," the insider continued.

The source also added that the duo were failing to hide how much they wanted to go home during the entire event.

“As soon as they were able to leave there were definite sighs of relief," they said.

OK! has contacted representatives of Megan and James for comment.

When rumours began to swirl that Megan and James had parted ways soon after their return from the Big Apple, a source told MailOnline at the time: "Megan's relationship with James hasn't worked despite her being hopeful after he surprised during the early days of them dating."

Megan later cleared up any speculation when she took part in a Q&A with her fans on Instagram.

Asked by a fan what happened between her and the TOWIE star, Megan shared a snap of her dressed as Julia Roberts' iconic character Vivian from Pretty Woman.

"It just didn't work out, he made a stunning Richard Gere for Halloween tho," the model wrote over the top, referencing one of her and James' nights out together as a couple.
