McBusted star Dougie Poynter has confirmed he is dating singer Ellie Goulding.
Dougie and Ellie have been spotted together the past several months and Poynter, but at first denied they were more than friends.
Dougie said, “We’ve been seeing each other since last year. Ellie’s a great girl, such a lovely person and a breath of fresh air in this industry.”
The 26-year-old singer, who went to rehab with depression over his split with The Saturdays singer Frankie Sandford, refused to comment on his romance with Ellie last week. He even said they were “just friends”, but not admits the romance.
The singer said, “In the music industry you always bump into the same people, so it’s nice when you get to meet other musicians you like and want to spend time with.”
Dougie , whose former band McFly joined forces with fellow pop-rockers Busted last year, was recently signed to Storm Model Management.
A source said, “Dougie has got great style, and he’s really caught the eye of some top scouts. His career looks like it will really take off in the future”.
Dougie recently split from girlfriend of two years Lara Carew-Jones and Ellie has been linked to Jeremy Irvine, Ed Sheeran and Calvin Harris in the past.
