Ellie confirmed she and Dougie are no longer together but that they remain as friends.

In an exclusive chat to 3AM’s Hannah Hope, Ellie reveals she needs some time to herself after Dougie split

After a show-stopping performance at the Grammy Awards last month, Ellie Goulding has been busy travelling the world on her Delirium tour, barely stopping to catch a breath.

But underneath her energetic stage persona, the singer, 29, has been dealing with heartache since splitting with her McFly drummer boyfriend Dougie Poynter.

The couple dated for two years, splitting briefly over Christmas, but eventually decided to call it quits last month with their work commitments keeping them in different countries.

“I’m not in a relationship any more so that has been hard,” Ellie tells 3am in her dressing room backstage at her first UK gig in Cardiff’s Motorpoint Arena on Tuesday night.

“Everyone knows breaking up with someone is a terrible thing and it’s really hard and it’s complicated.”

Thankfully, the tour has given Ellie a positive focus, so the break up doesn’t engulf her.

In a intimate chat, sipping Veuve Clicquot champers amid the waft of scented candles, softly spoken Ellie admits that she’s still in touch with Dougie, while he explores career options in LA.

She says: “Dougie is a really special person. He’s one of the most special people in the world and I’m so happy for him he’s doing so well in LA and he’s still one of my best friends and I know he feels the same.”

For Harry Judd, the McFly drummer crowned Strictly Come Dancing king in 2011, it came as a surprise: Paddy McGuinness, host of hit dating show Take Me Out, wanted to wrestle him.

Despite his wife’s pleas — and Judd’s admission that he is “totally an underdog” — he accepted, and the duo will fight it out in Sport Relief’s Clash Of The Titans competition next month.

“Strangely, he personally requested to wrestle me,” said Judd, 30. “I don’t think I have any beef with him. I am pretty sure he thinks I will be an easy competitor.

“He challenged me to an arm wrestle once and he won easily so maybe it was that. Or maybe he saw me on Strictly and thought, ‘I could take Judd.’

“He is much taller and about three stone heavier and is pretty strong. I am totally an underdog, but I quite like that. And I am going to try to do everything I can to make it a good fight.

“I am quick on my feet from Strictly, I have a lower centre of gravity than Paddy and I’m not as easy to push around as I look.

“It will be a real David versus Goliath challenge. Hopefully I will survive. I have a picture of Paddy McGuinness on my fridge to keep me inspired and get me going. I am going to take him down.”

However, McGuinness, 42, joked that the wrestling match was hardly David and Goliath as Judd has “muscles on his muscles, lives in the gym and is 18 years younger than me”. He added: “What could possibly go wrong?”

In the competition — broadcast as part of the BBC’s Sport Relief coverage on March 18 — captains Sir Steve Redgrave and Freddie Flintoff will lead celebrity teams through challenges.

Team Flintoff will include Judd, East-Enders star Maddy Hill and newsreader Sophie Raworth. Team Redgrave boasts Will Young, McGuinness and TV historian Dan Snow.

As well as the wrestling, Judd, 30, is taking part in a cycling challenge at the Lee Valley Velodrome — and his wife Izzy, who gave birth to their first child last month, has been worrying.

He said: “They offered me the rhythmic gymnastics, which I would have agreed to. But then when the email came through about wrestling Paddy then I was really keen. It is more of a challenge.

“My wife wasn’t best pleased. She was like, ‘Do you have to do the wrestling and do you have to do the cycling?’ She worries it’s not safe.”

Asked about their new daughter, Lola Rose, he said: “Surprisingly our grasp of nursery rhymes is a little poor. We only seem to know Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star. I’m going to have to up my game a little bit there.”

This is the fifth time the Standard’s Dispossessed Fund has joined forces with Sport Relief and Comic Relief.

So far, £4 million in donations has gone to 271 projects tackling social exclusion across the city. Londoners are also urged to sign up to the Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Games, at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park on March 20.

“Dougie started taking acting lessons last year and decided it was something he wanted to pursue and take seriously

Not content with being in two massive pop bands, Dougie Poynter is trying to crack Hollywood. The McFly and McBusted star, 28, has been out in LA meeting with top agents and producers.

The floppy haired bassist has already got a neat side project away from music, as he was snapped up by Kate Moss’s modelling agency Storm back in 2014.

But Dougie is looking to move and talk in front of the camera as well as pose.

A source said: “While the bands are taking a bit of time off, Dougie has been busy networking across the pond.

“It’s pilot season in LA, which is when lots of casting decisions are made.

“He’s not filmed anything, but he has had productive chats with some really important people out there.

“Dougie started taking acting lessons last year and decided it was something he wanted to pursue and take seriously.

“He’s not looking to stay out in Los Angeles permanently just now, but who knows in a year or two?”

Dougie still has upcoming McFly commitments, but the bass player had a bit of time out while the rest of the boys get on with their own things.

Much of which has to do with making babies.

Harry Judd became a father for the first time last month and Tom Fletcher welcomed his second son this week with wife Giovanna.

The couple kitted out a £900 Bugaboo Donkey double buggy blue on both sides for sons Buzz and newborn Buddy.

She’s one of the busiest ladies in showbusiness and singer Ellie Goulding has said she’s doing her best to make things work with her boyfriend Dougie Poynter, despite their hectic lives.
In an interview with Lorraine on Tuesday morning, the 29-year-old said she doesn’t see the handsome chap much.
She said: ‘He’s out in LA working hard and he’s doing all sorts of things. He’s started acting. He’s amazing, a complete natural, so I am excited to see what comes of that.

‘We work it out, we figure it out. We are pretty realistic with things. We’re pretty sensible about it and we just see each other when we can.’

Lorraine said: ‘Eventually, I’m sure you two will settle down at some point, but you don’t need to.’ to which she replied:

‘It’s just that time that everything comes up in the air, you don’t know what’s gonna… but at some point, maybe.’
The couple have dated for over two years, but were rumoured to have split in early December, however, Ellie soon rekindled her relationship with the 28-year-old a month later.

Tom talked about the soon to be brother or sister of Buzz during his appearance at the CopaFeel Celebrity Boob Ball.

[x21]EVENTS AND APPEARANCES > 2016 > COPAFEEL CELEBRITY BOOB BALL, LONDON – FEBRUARY 1

The McFly frontman is expecting a sibling for son Buzz very soon

The McFly frontman and his author wife Giovanna are set to become parents once again at the end of the month.

Speaking exclusively to OK! Online at Coppafeel’s Celebrity Dodge Ball tournament, he admitted that the baby could arrive at any moment. “We’re prepared, I think,” he said.

He added that two year old son Buzz is also looking forward to becoming a big brother. “He’s kind of aware,” he said.

“I don’t know if he’s aware of quite how much it’s going to change his life though, a new brother of sister. But he does know there’s a baby coming.”

The singer also admitted he hasn’t yet met bandmate Harry Judd’s new baby Lola.

“I haven’t met her yet, I’ve been poorly so I’ve been staying well away,” he said. “They’re getting on very well, I’m very excited to meet her.”

With a wife and a sister both ambassadors (or boob ninjas) for Coppafeel, the 30 year old revealed why he thinks the breast cancer charity is so important.

“It’s an amazing message and one that’s so simple. To pass that message on to people, woman and guys to check themselves and know their own bodies, it’s important.”

He added: “You need to know your own body and know if there is anything different going on. Just familiarising yourself.”

Ellie talked about her relationship with Dougie on a new interview with RED Magazine. You can read the part she talks about him below, also if you want to read the whole interview you can do it HERE

Suddenly, after scooping up the cats again, Goulding remembers something. “I had a dream that someone came up to me in a restaurant, saying ‘How are things with you and Dougie?’ And I said, ‘How are things with you and your wife?’ And he said ‘It’s none of your business’, and I said, ‘Well, it’s none of yours,’” she says, quite surprised at the recollection.

At the end of last year, tabloids claimed Goulding and Poynter had split up, but they have since been photographed together. It sounds complicated and, unsurprisingly, she doesn’t want to go on the record about it today, admitting at least that things have been tough but she’s in this for the long haul. She says she’s a good judge of character who can gauge people’s intentions towards her.

“When I met Dougie, he had no game. He was just like, ‘You’re really cool, let’s go out.’ It was me that pursued him, very unexpectedly. Before him, I was having a single period and hating all men, saying never again, after a series of things that happened to me. I thought I was going to be single for a long while. But then I met him and was like, ‘uh-oh, game over.’ He was just so nice. So, you know, you don’t throw something like that away so easily.”

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.”
