Calvin Harris may have a new lady in his life, dating Mexican actress and singer Eiza Gonzélez. But on Tuesday night, it was longtime friend Ellie Goulding by his side.

The “I Need Your Love” collaborators attended the GQ Men of the Year Awards in London Tuesday night, where Goulding presented Harris with the Patron Solo Artist of the Year Award.

Harris looked dapper in a sleek black three-piece suit and crisp white collared shirt – sans tie. Goulding, 29, stunned in a lilac, floral, short Marchesa number with silver strappy sandals.

The 32-year-old Scotsman’s appearance came after PEOPLE confirmed that his ex-girlfriend Taylor Swift had split from new boyfriend Tom Hiddleston after just three months of dating.

Harris and the 26-year-old “Bad Blood” singer were an item for 15 months – having been set up by mutual friend Goulding. News of their breakup was revealed in early June. Nearly two weeks later, Swift was photographed exchanging kisses, holding hands and cuddling up to Hiddleston, 35, on a Rhode Island beach.

In his acceptance speech for his big award Tuesday night from London’s Tate Modern Museum, Harris addressed how his life has changed over the past decade – and how he’s handled the media storm since his breakup from Swift.

“This is a big week for me because this week, 10 years ago, was the week that I left Marks and Spencer Simply Food in Clapham South – where I carried out such tasks as date-rotating sandwiches and moving the salmon,” he revealed.

Harris continued: “I’d like to dedicate this to my manager Mark Gillespie for being a fantastic man. We started out at the same time. We’ve been through a lot and discovered a lot this year – whether it be touring or dealing with the endless amount of bulls— written about people in 2016.”

Goulding and Harris previously dated in 2013, ET reports, though they have remained pals – pairing together on three songs so far.

“To call our next winner a superstar deejay barely hints at it,” she said while introducing him. “He is the best deejay in the world. At 32, he’s just getting started. He is my friend – I’m so very proud of him.”

The two had a playful night at the Awards, documenting much of it on Snapchat. “We just had a massive fight at the GQ Awards, and we’ve fallen out,” Harris joked at one point. “It’s horrible, really. Awkward as f—.”

“Not really!” Goulding said, laughing in the background.
