However, organisers have kindly leant them a hand in easing any awkwardness by shifting things around meaning the pair will have more chance of successfully avoiding each other.
They have already ensured that the couple don't bump into each other at rehearsals with the use of a Mumford and Sons shaped buffer.

The original plan was for Taylor Swift and One Direction to rehearse on Tuesday with Justin Timberlake and Muse (do line ups get any bigger than that?!).
And then for the rest of the acts - Robbie Williams, Emeli Sande, Mumford and Sons and Ben Howard - to rehearse Monday.
However, after it was realised that things could be a little frosty between Harry and Taylor organisers quickly swapped Mumford and Sons around, who were happy to swap days.
A source told The Sun: “It was a bit of an oversight to say the least. The original plans were drawn up a while back when Harry and Taylor bumping into each other wouldn’t have been an issue."
In fact, it would have been hand holding and snogging PDA central backstage.
The source added: “It could have caused a bit of a headache if the Mumfords kicked off — but fortunately they played ball.”
Of course they played ball, now they get to rehearse alongside blimmin' JT trousersnake! Who wouldn't be game?!
