‘We work it out’: Ellie Goulding on her tough relationship with Dougie

After a brief break-up last year, pop princess Ellie Goulding has admitted that her relationship with McFly guitarist Dougie Poynter involves a lot of hard work. 

With the pair both being in the entertainment business, the 29-year-old admitted it can be difficult to make things work. 

"We work it out, we figure it out. We are pretty realistic with things," said the On My Mind singer in an interview for the Lorraine Show

"We're pretty sensible about it and we just see each other when we can."

And she admitted that things would only get tougher as Dougie moves out to LA allow to pursue a new career path. 

"He's out in LA working hard and he's doing all sorts of things. He's started acting. He's amazing, a complete natural, so I am excited to see what comes of that."

But the singer remained coy when the presenter asked whether the pair had any plans to settle down. 

"It's just that time that everything comes up in the air, you don't know what's gonna… but at some point, maybe."

The couple have been an item for over two years despite the hiccough in the relationship in early December of 2015. 

The singer also responded to rumours that she wasn't eating, as printed in tabloid papers such as Metro

"Some people thought I was replacing my meals with the vitamin shots but it wasn't the case. My friends know I love my food too much. 

"If I didn't exercise, I would be in serious trouble."

Us too Ellie, us too.
