Insiders said Megan, 27, and James, 35, were frosty with one another and kept their distance when they could.
A source said: “Being stuck in a room with your ex is most people’s worst nightmare and that’s exactly what happened to Megan and James.
“It was a work job so they were both specialized but it was awkward and at times you could have cut the tension with a knife.
“There was a frosty air to say the least.
“Megan and James were there to have their specialized photographs taken with the rest of the cast.
“As soon as they were able to leave there were definite sighs of relief.”
Megan and James called time on their relationship last month.
At the time a friend said: “Megan’s relationship with James hasn’t worked despite her being hopeful after he surprised during the early days of them dating.”

The series, which has proved a hit since it first launched, sees Megan opening up with guests about some of the most taboo and private topics.
The Love Island beauty also revealed she was open to finding a partner who wasn’t famous.
She told fans during a Q and A: “I’ve said so many times I want someone not in our industry but it’s all I meet when I prioritise work and events.
“This year I’m putting work second and myself and happiness first! I want to travel loads.”
