Oh dear: Gemma Oaten endured an awkward run-in with her DIY SOS ex Nick Knowles at the TV Choice Awards on Monday night, as he arrived with a glamorous brunette on his arm
Who’s that? In an undoubtedly hard sight for the blonde beauty to witness, a dapper Nick, 54, swanned in and posed for photos with a stunning brunette, who looked close as she leaned into him, days after he stepped out with love interest Pascal Craymer
Flaunting her glowing tan, the star styled her beachy blonde locks in soft waves and parted on the side .
Her sparkling peepers were enhanced with fluttery lashes and lashings of liner while she slicked on a berry gloss for her encounter with her former flame.
Adding height to her look, the glamorous star slipped on a pair of nude stiletto sandals.

Close: The pair looked pretty happy as they cosied up for the cameras
Nick rocked a fitted ebony suit and tie while his date slipped into a showstopping metallic, sequined strapless dress with a thigh-high split.
Adding a pop of colour, she slicked on some scarlet lipstick.
The run-in comes after Gemma embarked on a short lived romance with Nick, who she was pictured cuddling up to at last year’s TV Choice Awards where they had first met
Nick immediately whisked her off for a romantic dinner after the glitzy award ceremony and they began dating, eight months after Nick’s separation from wife Jessica Moor.
But when pictures emerged of the pair enjoying a romantic getaway in Edinburgh, the 54-year-old star abruptly broke up with Gemma leaving her in ‘tears’.

Nick returned to Jessica, 29, and supported her as she battled cervical cancer.
By January they decided to separate but remained on good terms for the sake of their son, Eddie.
Rubbing further salt into the wound, Nick then claimed he had only been on ‘one date’ with Gemma and that he was working things through with his estranged wife Jessica Moor.
In the aftermath of their split, Gemma said she had ‘been burned’ by the dumping.
While Gemma is now loved-up with film producer boyfriend Scott Walker, Nick has been rumoured to be romancing former TOWIE star Pascal Craymer, and even joined her at Tito Jackson’s album launch on Friday.
They had enjoyed a date night at Gabeto restaurant in London’s Camden last month.
When contacted by MailOnline, a spokesperson for Pascal said: ‘It’s very early days. They had a wonderful night. Let’s see what happens.’
However, a source recently told The Sun Online that the couple’s chemistry was ‘amazing’.
They enthused: ‘Nick and Pascal were introduced a little while ago by a mutual friend, and have been talking ever since.
The evening was their first official public date – they went to Gabeto in Camden and ate loads of amazing tapas and drank cocktails.
‘The chemistry between them was amazing – it went so well. He thought she looked really stunning, they were there for hours laughing and talking.’
