Well at least they can laugh about it - The Vampire Diaries stars Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerholder joked about their real-life break-up as they accepted their award for Best Chemistry at the Peoples Choice Awards last night

Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerholder still have "chemistry" despite their break-up.

The Vampire Diaries stars called off their three-year relationship in May 2013, yet managed to good-naturedly laugh off winning the prize for Best Chemistry at the Peoples Choice Awards on Wednesday thanks to their characters Elena Gilbert and Damon Salvatores steamy on-screen romance in the hit TV show.

Taking the stage to accept their trophy, Ian enthused: "Wow, this is crazy! Can you believe this is almost five years in the making?"

The 25-year-old brunette joked: "Youre right, yeah! But you know whats funny, Ian, is that at the beginning of the show, Elena actually hated Damon."

Ian retorted, "You were hooking up with my brother!", referring to Elenas long-term relationship with Damons brother Stefan (Paul Wesley), on the show.

There was no certainly no sign of bad blood between the pair, who played up to the audiences cheers by pretending to feel uncomfortable around each other as they referenced their real-life break-up.

Nina continued, "Then we broke up in real life," with Ian chiming in, "And yet our characters are still dating on the show", before she replied, "Its a good thing its not awkward..."

The Lost hunk then spontaneously planted a smooch on Ninas cheek as she giggled, "Well, its a good thing we have chemistry!"

The exes - who are constantly subject to rumours about getting back together - were visibly on very good terms during the ceremony and Ian even shared a special birthday message for Nina on Twitter yesterday.

He wrote: "Happy Birthday @ninadobrev!!! The world loves you! We all do. Enjoy the moment, enjoy the day, enjoy the year!"

Disappointingly for fans of the show, Nina was spotted holding hands with a mystery man as she arrived on the red carpet before the ceremony.
