Now was there as the ex-lovebirds hilariously played hide-and-seek at the Brits

Caroline Flack and Harry Styles may have been trying to brush their relationship under the carpet but they’re making a pretty shoddy job of it.

The pair have sworn their three-month fling is over for good.

Yet after chasing each other around London all week, they’re not fooling us.

Now watched as Harry, 18, played a game of cat and mouse with Caroline, 32, last Tuesday and Wednesday – with their poor mutual friend Nick Grimshaw, 27, stuck firmly in the middle.

First up was the Brit Awards, where the pair were in the same place for the first time since their split in January.

While they kept their distance at the ceremony, we’re told they started texting after One Direction won the British Single award and continued to stay in touch through the night.
