Frankie Sandford had an emotional reunion with ex-boyfriend Dougie Poynter last night (12.04.10).

The Saturdays singer met up with her former lover at London's Mayfair hotel and appeared upset as the pair chatted quietly in a corner of the bar.

Keen to comfort the brunette beauty, the McFly bassist placed a caring hand on her leg as they continued their discussion.

After their reunion, Frankie, 21, left to fetch room keys from reception while 22-year-old Dougie departed the hotel.

Following their meeting, Frankie sought comfort in her pet dog.

She took to twitter to post a picture of her pooch with the caption: "He gives the best cuddles."

Frankie and Dougie - who had been living together - vowed to stay friends after they ended their year-long romance in March.

Speaking at the time of the split, a source said: "Frankie is so upset. She had moved in with Dougie and thought their romance was for keeps. She is heartbroken after their split because of work commitments. They are both still friends."

Since they separated, Frankie has been romantically linked to a number of famous men, including JLS' Aston Merrygold and Calum Best, although she has denied she is more than friends with either of them.
