Was it a date night?
McBusted band member Dougie Poynter and pop star Ellie Goulding looked pretty cosy as they were spotted leaving her London home last night. The pair have been faced with plenty of relationship rumours and after their late night rendezvous those reports are unlikely to go away.
Ellie Goulding and her rumoured boyfriend Dougie Poynter went for low key as they left her London home following reports that they have begun dating. Goulding opted for a casual ensemble, including a navy jumper and jacket to protect her from the February chill. Poynter went for a more colourful outfit, with a red plaid shirt and army print jacket making him stand out in the dreary weather.
They might look like a pair made in pop star heaven but Dougie has insisted that their relationship is purely platonic. Appearing on the Jonathan Ross Show, the 26-year-old told the T.V. Presenter: “we’re friends.”
However, after the young starlets were spotted holding hands at the Cosmopolitan’s Ultimate Women of the Year awards in December, people began speculating that love was in the air between the Burn songstress and the cheeky McFly guitarist.
This isn’t the first time Ellie has supposedly dipped her toe into the world of showbiz dating. The 27-year-old was previously been linked to One Direction cutie, Niall Horan in August 2013.
However, the blonde beauty had been reluctant to confirm any kind of relationship with the 1D singer as she refused to talk about her private life.
Talking to the Daily Mirror at the time, Ellie said: “Oh God, I knew this was coming. I just can’t talk about Niall.”
“I won’t ever talk about my love life any more as it’s always then gone wrong when I have in the past.”
“I will say this, I’ve definitely had some ‘interesting’ tweets since the story came out. Thankfully I’m able to take it all with a pinch of salt because I’ve been told to be that way.”
Speaking of Twitter, a retweet from Ellie last night proves that she definitely has love on the mind as she shared the message: “I want you to know that you are loved, and that you are not alone”. Watch this space…
