Harry Styles and Taylor Swift are to be kept firmly apart at the BRIT Awards tonight, as things are already awkward enough between the pair after they split over New Years, what with Harry constantly out on the tiles and Taylor taking the piss out of him during her Grammy performance of  'We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together'.

Harry and the rest of the One Direction boys are to have their own private dressing room in one part of The O2 in London tonight, while Taylor is to be kept in a completely different section to avoid any run-ins and clashes. Which is really unfair, because we'd love nothing more than a Haylor run-in at an awards ceremony where there are eyes everywhere and countless women that Harry has shacked up with.

Someone from the BRITs told the Metro: 'No one wants anything awkward to happen. Taylor and Harry are definitely being kept well apart. Taylor is near Robbie Williams, Justin Timberlake, Mumford & Sons and [host] James Corden in one area.' Sticking Taylor in with all the boys? Now that's just mean. How are they supposed to enjoy their evening with Swifty peeping around every corner hoping to nab her next celeb boyfriend? Meanwhile Harry is down a different corridor with an extra-large room for himself and the other 1D lads, hopefully getting messy and overcompensating for their nerves before performing their Comic Relief single 'One Way Or Another'. Hopefully Debbie Harry will then come on stage and swallow them all whole for destroying a perfectly good song (even if it is about stalking someone).

The awkwardness continues however, as Taylor is expected to perform 'We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together' at tonight's show. Ouch. Are we in for another MTV VMA 2003 Britney Justin awkwardness moment? Probably. This could be great.
