It doesn’t matter how long ago the relationship ended bumping into an ex-boyfriend can be a traumatic experience.

But Imogen Thomas will no doubt be satisfied with her brief encounter with former fling Jermain Defoe today, because she was dressed to impress in a tiny and very tight dress.

The Welsh former Big Brother contestant was seen indulging in a spot of shopping at a boutique in Chigwell when her ex was driving past.

What a sight for your ex: As Imogen was crossing the road her former flame Jermain Defoe was driving past and he couldn't help but stare

Jermaine was seen looking out his window at Imogen, who had complemented her curves in the orange and grey striped dress.

The pair dated back in 2009 and their romance was brief lasting just six months.

Still it's never nice to bump into an ex not looking your best so Imogen was probably delighted by today's coincidence.

Despite temperatures soaring instead of flashing more flesh by sunbathing Imogen had opted for a bit of retail therapy.

She is often gifted with clothes from the Debra boutique and today she left with no less than three bags full of clothes.

But she had the top down on her convertible car making the most of the hot weather.

Jermain is said to be demanding lavish gifts back from his most recent ex Alexandra Burke.

One present he especially wants back is a Bentley worth 175,000 which the Tottenham Hotspurs player claims he only lent to the Elephant singer.

Defoe has also asked Alexandra to hand over a watch and ring but the Bad Boys performer is apparently refusing because he has items from her wardrobe in his mansion.
