Awkward ex alert! Ed Sheeran and Ellie Goulding played nice at the 2014 Victoria Secret Fashion Show in London on Dec. 2. when they shared an incredibly awkward hug. The former couple’s embrace totally makes us cringe!
Ed Sheeran, 23, and Ellie Goulding, 27, used to be match made in music heaven. Despite an an ugly breakup and Ellie’s reported fling with One Direction‘s Niall Horan, the exes shared an awkward hug at London’s 2014 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, on Dec. 2. Luckily, it was captured in a perfectly uncomfortable picture.
Ed Sheeran & Ellie Goulding Hug — Awkward
The strange scenario between the ex-couple unfolded on the pink carpet before Ed hit the stage at the VS Fashion Show to perform his single, “Thinking Out Loud.”
Well, if anyone was ‘thinking out loud’ during the Ed and Ellie’s tense hug than they would have said one word: AWKWARD! Ed seems like he is barely paying attention to Ellie as they embrace. It also appears as though he just wants to get the gesture over as he forces a smile.
We cannot see Ellie’s expression, but it looks like she is saying something to him. Perhaps she is apologizing for her reported fling with Niall. Our minds reel!
The bizarre run in could have been hard for Ellie, who presumably got a glimpse of Ed’s girlfriend, Athina Andrelos, 25. Although Ellie rocked the pink carpet solo, she is apparently linked to another brit boy and musician, Dougie Poynter, 27, according to the Daily Mail.
It seems like someone has a type!

And, it wasn’t just Athina who caught Ed’s eye as he performed amid a squad of supermodels.
Strumming his guitar, Ed stood in one spot on stage as the VS models walked pass him showing off their sexy lingerie. In the video, which can be watched HERE, you can see Ed totally sneak a peek as Alessandra Ambrosio and Adriana Lima walked by him — so cute, Ed!
His angel-like voice won over the audience (and us) and he even managed to concentrate while the hottest models in the world walked up and down the runway beside him — we give him major props!
