'They were smiling and laughing the whole time,' the source said, of what appeared to be obviously a 'friendly meal'.

A source told People magazine: 'They just wanted to connect and have a friendly chat.

'They just wanted to sit down together. The tone was light and fun.'

However, fans hoping for them to get back together look set for continued disappointment.

'This isn't them reconciling,' the source insisted. 'This was just two people who were married being civil and friendly.'
