Star finally addresses big engagement rumours

Ever since Ellie Goulding was photographed with a ring on that very important finger last month, there has been widespread speculation that she had secretly become engaged to her singer boyfriend Dougie Poynter.

Just before you go out to buy the hat though, the McBusted singer has denied the rumours that they are set to tie the knot.

In an interview with The Mirror this week, Dougie said: “No. It was just a ring that fit on that finger. It didn’t really look like an engagement ring though, did it?”

Well now we just feel disappointed and silly.

And just in case Dougie thought he might be able to get away with proposing with a ring like that in the future, his bandmate Harry Judd piped up to add: “That would have been a lame engagement ring, Doug.”

Given how Ellie has been gushing about the lovely Dougie of late, we would imagine that wedding bells may not be too far off.
