She’s opened up about their on/off relationship
Whoever spread the rumours that Ellie Goulding and Dougie Poynter were over must be sitting with actual egg on their face right now, because their brand new joint photoshoot for Glamour magazine is all the proof you need that they’re still going strong.
Just before Christmas, insiders reckoned that #Dellie was done and dusted after being ‘torn apart by jealousy’ (dramatic), but um, they’re still looking very much like a thing to us.
Would you just LOOK at them – with all their matching blonde hair and slightly sibling-like faces. Glorious.
Chatting to Glamour about their forever on/off relationship, Ellie admitted that, although they like to have their space from one another now and again, it’d take a lot to split them up for good.
‘Relationships have their ups and downs,” Ellie admitted. “And sometimes, yeah, I want to be left alone. Dougie is respectful of that.
“I’ve been busy; he’s been busy. We’re apart constantly, but we’re great because we accept it’s never going to be perfect.
“Dougie and I have such different musical worlds, but he understands when I’ve had a tough rehearsal or tough couple of days travelling.
Although Doug and Ellie have been together for ages now, she’s still proud of her independence too: “I don’t like to rely on him to get me through everything, though. I’m an independent person – I do like to take care of things myself. It’s important to figure out ways of keeping your own Zen.”
Everyone knows that a couple who share outfits and hair bleach together, stay together, and it’s not just us who’ve noticed how Dougie and Ellie have both morphed into the exact same person over the years.
She spilled: “We dress kind of similar. Dougie’s always like, “We can’t both wear this shirt!” But I like it… People always say we look like brother and sister. Even our family members say it. It’s quite weird.”
