Ellie Goulding and Dougie Poynter have split!

Ellie Goulding has confirmed that she and Dougie Poynter have split, again and she has also revealed that she plans to take a break from music.


The “Army” singer has revealed that she has spilt from McFly star Dougie Poynter due to their busy work schedules.

“People think I’m invincible but these past few weeks have been tough,” Goulding told The Sun.

“When you’re in the public eye, it seems like you’re able to deal with stuff better than anyone else, which is not remotely true.

“I’m not in a relationship any more and that’s been hard.”

The singer said that Poynter is “one of the most special people in the world” and that she is “happy for him” as he tries to make it as an actor in Hollywood.

“He’s doing well in LA and he’s still one of my best friends. I know he feels the same,” she continued.

“But I think for me and anybody else going through the same thing, it’s really important to get to know yourself, be happy with your own company and like yourself.

“The only way I can do that is by spending time with myself.”

“The last couple of weeks have been quite strange and quite different for me because I’ve been by myself so much, but I think it’s healthy to do.”

Meanwhile, Ellie has also revealed that she plans to take a break from music after her current tour Delirium finishes, stating that she is not planning to write or release any new material for at least a year.

‘My plan is to have a month off in August and do more of my charity stuff and then next year I need to live a bit. Who knows? My situation has changed,’ she has explained to The Sun, pointing out she’s been touring constantly for the past seven years.

Ellie Goulding’s current single Army is out now.
