What's more awkward than running into an ex? How about: Being a celebrity, running into an ex on a plane, being trapped in the same small space with hundreds of other people, while your daughter tries to orchestrate a family reunion.

On Tuesday, Pete Doherty and Kate Moss found themselves on the same flight to Ibiza, where Doherty was scheduled to play at the Ibiza Rocks Bar that night.

Then Kate's daughter Lila Grace suddenly appeared - and began beckoning her mum over.

An onlooker said: "Lila was excited because she hadn't seen Pete for ages. She was calling her mum over but Kate and Pete stayed in their seats and just acknowledged each other.

"They both looked extremely uncomfortable and spent the whole flight trying not to catch each other's eyes. When the flight landed Kate was ushered off and they did not speak."
