And the two just about managed to keep this up at yesterday’s NRJ Music Awards.
Phew! That could have been awkward.
The two singers were attending the French music award ceremony in Cannes last night with One Direction picking up the Best International Duo/ Group award.
Following their win, Harry Styles, 18, tweeted his thanks to the award ceremony and the group’s fans.
He wrote:"Thank you so much to @NRJhitmusiconly and our fans for the award!! See you later .xx."

His band mate Niall Horan also tweeted saying: "Cannes thank your for today! We had a lot of fun! French fans thanks alot for the award! gona sit lovely beside the TV. (sic)"
Although Taylor Swift 23, left the ceremony empty handed, she did manage to grab everyone’s attention when presenting the Best French Female artist award wearing a rather short, sparkly dress.
Taylor also spiced things up during a performance of ‘We are Never Ever Getting Back Together' by donning a pair of knee high leather boots and hot pants.
That’s one way to show Mr Styles what he is missing- and not exactly the most subtle of songs to sing considering her ex is in the room.
The two are both set to appear at next month’s BRIT Awards after both received nominations.
No doubt they will be employing the same avoidance tactics then too.
