Ellie Goulding on McBusted's Dougie: 'He's my manfriend'

2014-05-23
ellie3Ellie Goulding discusses her relationship with McBusted's Dougie Poynter on Alan Carr: Chatty Man tonight (May 23). The Burn singer and Poynter have been linked to each other since January, having made several public appearances together - but until now neither has spoken about the romance. Quizzed by Alan Carr on Channel 4 tonight, Goulding shyly confirms that the pair are in fact dating. "He's my manfriend," she admits, before the audience woop. "Boyfriend, traditionally." Asked how long they've been together, Goulding says: "Umm... well I don’t know. We were sort of friends for quite a long time..."  "… and it just blossomed," Carr interrupts. "He’s a very lovely human being," Goulding adds later in the interview. Alan Carr: Chatty Man airs tonight (May 23) on Channel 4, and in addition to Ellie Goulding also features interviews with comedian and actor John Cleese, Mary Portas and Richard Ayoade.
