Hilary DuffHilary Duff has said it was “nerve-racking” and “a little strange” to meet up with ex-boyfriend Joel Madden earlier this week - and the strangeness was amplified because it happened on television.

Hilary and the Good Charlotte frontman, who dated for over two years before separating last November, both appeared on MTV’s TRL on Monday.

After the show, Hilary told People magazine: “I just did TRL today and Joel was there, and it was the first time we’d seen each other and it was so, like, nerve-racking.”

“I knew that he was going to be there and he knew. It is what it is. I mean, what am I going to do? It’s life.”

“It was a little strange at first, but I wish nothing but good for him and I know that he wishes the same for me. I’m happy and he’s happy and I think that’s all that counts.”
