MEGAN Barton Hanson and James Lock had an awkward reunion at an Ex On The Beach event.
The pair came face to face following their split at a press call for the hit MTV show in central London on Tuesday.
Insiders said Megan, 27, and James, 35, were frosty with one another and kept their distance when they could.
A source said: “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.
