Harry Styles and Taylor Swift avoided an awkward encounter by steering clear of each other at an awards bash in France.

The One Direction singer and the US pop star - who recently split following a brief romance - both attended the NRJ Awards in Cannes, but apparently timed their appearances to make sure they didn't bump into each other and trigger a "media circus".

A source told Us Weekly: "It was very carefully timed so they didn't do the carpet at the same time.

"Taylor didn't do any backstage interviews and didn't use a dressing room - she changed at the hotel because she didn't want to see Harry at any point."

The insider added: "Things were timed to keep them apart and for it to not become a big media circus."

However, although there were no embarrassing encounters, Harry, 18, did have to sit through Taylor's rendition of her hit song We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together, which she performed at the ceremony.

The 23-year-old, who often mines her personal life for inspiration for her music, is thought to have penned the track about another of her former flames.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Sagittarius:

Working in isolation doesn't suit you. You're a social creature who gets your best ideas when collaborating with others. Unfortunately, that's not possible right now. Resign yourself to this difficult situation. If you do a good job, you'll pave the way for bigger and better assignments. Part of the problem is you lack experience. The only way to get the training you need is to do some volunteer work. Making a temporary sacrifice will eventually pay off. Be patient.More
