Their tumultuous nine-month relationship came to an end in July this year.
But since their split, Lottie Moss, 19, and her ex-beau Alex Mytton are often crossing paths, thanks to sharing the same friendships, and Friday night proved to be no exception as they both attended the launch of Mahiki nightclub in Kensington.
However, the evening proved to be something of an awkward affair for the former flames, as both were spotted getting close to mystery companions just a stone's throw away from each other.

Amorous display: Lottie Moss, 19, was seen getting very close to a mystery man as she partied at Mahiki in Kensington for the nightclub's launch on Friday night
Lottie and her mystery man appeared to put on an amorous display, as they stepped outside the lavish venue for a cigarette.
He was seen with his arms wrapped around the model and appeared to be smooching her neck while hugging onto her waist.
Unfazed by the attention, Lottie seemed to continue her conversation with another partygoer, as her companion showered her with affection.
However, it seems their display didn't go unnoticed by Alex, who appeared less than impressed just inches away from his ex-girlfriend.
Awkward? Just inches away, however, had been her ex-beau Alex Mytton who looked slightly unimpressed while in the company of a brunette
He, meanwhile, was spotted in the company of a mystery brunette and was spotted clutching onto his phone while seeming distracted. When contacted by MailOnline, a representative for Alex said: 'That's just a friend of Alex's. Nothing romantic.'
MailOnline have also contacted a representative for Lottie.
Made In Chelsea star Alex was casually clad for his evening out in London and stepped out sporting a dark pair of jeans and a plain grey t-shirt.
Lottie, meanwhile, showcased her slender frame in a thigh-skimming mini dress, making sure to show her ex-boyfriend exactly what he is missing.

She donned a Clueless-inspired ensemble that paired together a Nineties style fur-trim Bardot minidress and diamond choker.
Her scanty number left her pins firmly on view and drew attention to her bare decolletage, with Lottie wrapping up against the November chill by sporting a black heavy-duty leather jacket.
Letting her stylish dress do all the talking, the model added height with a towering pair of black stilettos and styled her platinum tresses in a poker-straight style, with her locks falling past her shoulders.
Nothing to see here! The duo were seen locked in their own exchange, not fazed by other party-goers
Close: He had his arms wrapped around Lottie and was seen kissing her neck as they spoke to others while she smoked a cigarette
She was seen getting up close and personal to her mystery man, with the duo appearing to lock lips as they cuddled up together.
Her pal was seen placing a hand on Lottie's back and leaning in close to the catwalk star, as they stepped outside with a slew of other party-goers.
It comes after Lottie has been romantically linked to rugby player and model beau Elliot Clements, following her split from Alex this summer.

Following a 'rocky few months' and 'cheating' claims, the former couple split, with a source telling The Sun at the time: 'Alex has been away all summer filming for Made in Chelsea in Ibiza.
'They haven’t spent as much time together as they would have liked to but things have been rocky for a few months now.
'Alex is very fond of Lottie and they may find a way to work through their differences but for now they’ve definitely called it quits.'

Two months following their break up, Alex was seen reuniting with his former flame Nicola Hughes at a party.
Sources claimed Alex was 'doing his best to charm Nicola' and that their 'chemistry' was undeniable. Alex and Nicola dated on and off for two years after meeting in August 2014 while he was DJing in Ireland.
After the photo of him and Nicola emerged, Alex clashed with Lottie via Twitter, with the aspiring model telling her ex-beau to 'grow up', but proving there is no bad blood between them, Lottie was recently seen partying with Nicola while celebrating Halloween.

Glam: Styling her platinum tresses in a poker-straight middle parting, she framed her eyes with lashings of mascara and winged liner
Good night? She appeared a tad bleary-eyed as she made a hasty exit after her night of partying
She and Mytton, meanwhile, have remained amicable following their break up and are often seen in the company of each other and the same circle, with Lottie having befriended many of the Made In Chelsea cast, despite never appearing on the show.
The striking blonde was scouted for her first modelling agency at the tender age of 13 and first courted the attention of the modelling world when she attended her older half-sister Kate's wedding to Jamie Hince in 2011.

Sydney seaplane crash: Exhaust fumes affected pilot, report confirms
The pilot of a seaplane that crashed into an Australian river, killing all on board, had been left confused and disorientated by leaking exhaust fumes, investigators have confirmed.
The Canadian pilot and five members of a British family died in the crash north of Sydney in December 2017.
All were found to have higher than normal levels of carbon monoxide in their blood, a final report has found.
It recommended the mandatory fitting of gas detectors in all such planes.
British businessman Richard Cousins, 58, died alongside his 48-year-old fiancée, magazine editor Emma Bowden, her 11-year-old daughter Heather and his sons, Edward, 23, and William, 25, and pilot Gareth Morgan, 44. Mr Cousins was the chief executive of catering giant Compass.
The family had been on a sightseeing flight in the de Havilland DHC-2 Beaver plane when it nose-dived into the Hawkesbury River at Jerusalem Bay, about 50km (30 miles) from the city centre.
The final report by the Australian Transport Safety Bureau (ATSB) confirmed the findings of an interim report published in 2020.
It said pre-existing cracks in the exhaust collector ring were believed to have released exhaust gas into the engine bay. Holes left by missing bolts in a firewall then allowed the fumes to enter the cabin.
“As a result, the pilot would have almost certainly experienced effects such as confusion, visual disturbance and disorientation,” the report said.
“Consequently, it was likely that this significantly degraded the pilot’s ability to safely operate the aircraft.”
The ATSB recommended the Civil Aviation Safety Authority consider mandating the fitting of carbon monoxide detectors in piston-engine aircraft that carry passengers.
It previously issued safety advisory notices to owners and operators of such aircraft that they install detectors “with an active warning” to pilots”. Operators and maintainers of planes were also advised to carry out detailed inspections of exhaust systems and firewalls.

Australia unlikely to fully reopen border in 2021, says top official
Australia is unlikely to fully open its borders in 2021 even if most of its population gets vaccinated this year as planned, says a senior health official.
The comments dampen hopes raised by airlines that travel to and from the country could resume as early as July.
Department of Health Secretary Brendan Murphy made the prediction after being asked about the coronavirus’ escalation in other nations.
Dr Murphy spearheaded Australia’s early action to close its borders last March.
“I think that we’ll go most of this year with still substantial border restrictions,” he told the Australian Broadcasting Corporation on Monday.
“Even if we have a lot of the population vaccinated, we don’t know whether that will prevent transmission of the virus,” he said, adding that he believed quarantine requirements for travellers would continue “for some time”.
Citizens, permanent residents and those with exemptions are allowed to enter Australia if they complete a 14-day hotel quarantine at their own expense.
Qantas – Australia’s national carrier – reopened bookings earlier this month, after saying it expected international travel to “begin to restart from July 2021.”
However, it added this depended on the Australian government’s deciding to reopen borders.
Australia’s tight restrictions
The country opened a travel bubble with neighbouring New Zealand late last year, but currently it only operates one-way with inbound flights to Australia.
Australia has also discussed the option of travel bubbles with other low-risk places such as Taiwan, Japan and Singapore.
A vaccination scheme is due to begin in Australia in late February. Local authorities have resisted calls to speed up the process, giving more time for regulatory approvals.
Australia has so far reported 909 deaths and about 22,000 cases, far fewer than many nations. It reported zero locally transmitted infections on Monday.
Experts have attributed much of Australia’s success to its swift border lockdown – which affected travellers from China as early as February – and a hotel quarantine system for people entering the country.
Local outbreaks have been caused by hotel quarantine breaches, including a second wave in Melbourne. The city’s residents endured a stringent four-month lockdown last year to successfully suppress the virus.
Other outbreaks – including one in Sydney which has infected about 200 people – prompted internal border closures between states, and other restrictions around Christmas time.
The state of Victoria said on Monday it would again allow entry to Sydney residents outside of designated “hotspots”, following a decline in cases.
While the measures have been praised, many have also criticised them for separating families across state borders and damaging businesses.
Dr Murphy said overall Australia’s virus response had been “pretty good” but he believed the nation could have introduced face masks earlier and improved its protections in aged care homes.
In recent days, Australia has granted entry to about 1,200 tennis players, staff and officials for the Australian Open. The contingent – which has recorded at least nine infections – is under quarantine.

Covid: Brisbane to enter three-day lockdown over single infection
The Australian city of Brisbane has begun a snap three-day lockdown after a cleaner in its hotel quarantine system became infected with coronavirus.
Health officials said the cleaner had the highly transmissible UK variant and they were afraid it could spread.
Brisbane has seen very few cases of the virus beyond quarantined travellers since Australia’s first wave last year.
It is the first known instance of this variant entering the Australian community outside of hotel quarantine.
The lockdown is for five populous council areas in Queensland’s state capital.
Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk announced the measure on Friday morning local time, about 16 hours after the woman tested positive.
Ms Palaszczuk said the lockdown aimed to halt the virus as rapidly as possible, adding: “Doing three days now could avoid doing 30 days in the future.”
“I think everybody in Queensland… knows what we are seeing in the UK and other places around the world is high rates of infection from this particular strain,” she said.
“And we do not want to see that happening here in our great state.”
Australia has reported 28,500 coronavirus infections and 909 deaths since the pandemic began. By contrast, the US, which is the hardest-hit country, has recorded more than 21 million infections while nearly 362,000 people have died of the disease.The lockdown will begin at 18:00 on Friday (08:00 GMT) in the Brisbane city, Logan and the Ipswich, Moreton and Redlands local government areas.
Residents will only be allowed to leave home for certain reasons, such as buying essential items and seeking medical care.
For the first time, residents in those areas will also be required to wear masks outside of their homes.
Australia has faced sporadic outbreaks over the past year, with the most severe one in Melbourne triggering a lockdown for almost four months.
A pre-Christmas outbreak in Sydney caused fresh alarm, but aggressive testing and contact-tracing has kept infection numbers low. The city recorded four local cases on Friday.
Prime Minister Scott Morrison’s government has pledged to start mass vaccinations in February instead of March as was planned.
Lockdown interrupts ‘near normal’ life in Brisbane
Simon Atkinson, BBC News in Brisbane
At 8:00 today I popped to the local supermarket for some bread, milk – and because it’s summer here – a mango. I was pretty much the only customer.
When I went past the same shop a couple of hours later it was a different story – 50 people standing in the drizzle – queuing to get inside as others emerged with bulging shopping bags. “Heaps busier than Christmas,” a cheery trolley attendant told me. “It’s off the scale”.
Despite the “don’t panic” messages from authorities, pictures on social media show it’s a pattern being repeated across the city.
While shutdowns are common around the world, the tough and sudden stay-at-home order for Brisbane has caught people on the hop here after months of near normality.
But while such a rapid, hard lockdown off the back of just a single case of Covid-19 will seem crazy in some parts of the world, I’ve not come across too many people complaining.
And I don’t think that’s just because Aussies love to follow a rule. This is the first time the UK variant of the virus has been detected in the community in Australia.
And nobody here wants Brisbane to go through what Melbourne suffered last year. Even if it means going without mangoes.
