Ellie Goulding and Dougie Poynter are officially dating, which was confirmed during the latest episode of the two-part documentary Fearne and McBusted. Poynter is featured in several interviews with his McBusted bandmates.
Television personality Fearne Cotton follows the group in their day-to-day lives, which seems to get more interesting by the episode.
On May 20, the Daily Mail spotted the couple and said, “Dougie even wore his favoured fedora for the couple’s romantic stroll, while Ellie, 27, added some headgear of her own for the walk courtesy of a black beanie hat.”
“Yeah. All is good in that area,” the 26-year-old English boy band star said when asked about Goulding.
He remained quiet on any further details regarding the duo’s relationship, adding that he likes to keep his personal life private. Goulding has yet to address her boyfriend’s comments and has remained tight-lipped when it comes to the couple’s romance. However, this is the first time that either party has copped to their relationship status.
Poynter and Goulding are frequently spotted in each other’s company, but had not officially announced their status until now. The pair were seen holding hands as they shopped in Manchester on Monday.
In fact, Goulding proudly professed that she’s single and doesn’t “need a guy” in the April issue of Cosmopolitan magazine.
“I [used to] put men on a pedestal,” Goulding, who previously dated EDM DJ Skrillex, admitted to the publication. “They’d be everything. I decided to remedy that, and that’s why I’m single now. I’ve realized I don’t need a guy. I’ve got amazing, awesome, stupid friends in the best way possible.”
The 27-year-old songstress also admitted that she’s learned a lot from her past relationships and the heartache that followed.
“A lot of despair in breaking up with someone is thinking about how you’re going to cope in the future,” she said. “But not being completely present prevents you from being happy and alive. As soon as you stop relying so heavily on what happened in the past, you end up being able to deal.”
Goulding re-released her 2012 album Halycon as Halycon Days in 2013. The 27-year-old singer was recently asked to write a new song, Beating Heart, for the Divergent soundtrack.
