"Dougie is one of the most special people in the world and I'm so happy for him.He's doing well in LA and he's still one of my best friends.A source told the Sun Online: "Ellie and Dougie were hanging out in the ceremony area after it had finished and most people had left."They continued: "Dougie was being very attentive and lent in to hug his ex and kiss her on the cheek before they headed towards the exit together.They walked separately but were very friendly and amicable with each other."This comes after both Ellie and Dougie have both spoken in the past about their continued friendship after their break-up. I need time off for my own head," she told the paper.I can't think of any of my friends or family who have been through a break-up and actually thought, 'That was all right'.I am just grateful I am in a time in my life when I'm completely preoccupied with the tour and seeing my fans every night."If I wasn't on tour it would have been a great deal harder. I have been trying to take my mind off it by watching things and reading.Photos have emerged of the pair hanging out at the awards and posing for pictures together, but it seems Ellie and Dougie may have continued the party elsewhere afterwards.
