Dougie Poynter has denied reports that he and girlfriend Ellie Goulding are engaged.
There have been rumours that the McBusted band member proposed to Ellie after she was spotted wearing a band on her ring finger.
When asked at the Royal Variety Performance if it was an engagement ring, Dougie told Digital Spy: “No. It was just a ring that fit on that finger. “It didn’t really look like an engagement though, did it?”
His bandmate Harry Judd joked: “That would have been a lame engagement ring Doug…”
Dougie and Ellie were first rumoured to be a couple around a year ago when they were seen together at an NBA basketball match.
Ellie later criticised newspapers for printing false quotes allegedly from Dougie supposedly confirming their relationship.
In the May issue of Cosmopolitan, published in April, Ellie said that she was single, but a month later Dougie did confirm that he and Ellie were dating.
Ellie later spoke about the romance, telling Alan Carr: “Err, he’s my man friend. Boyfriend traditionally.”
