See how the stars' relationship has developed

Despite being so private, Ellie Goulding and Dougie Poynter¬†have taken part in a steamy photoshoot together for Rollacoaster magazine, which Dougie teased on his Instagram, writing ‘Soon…’ in the caption.

Dougie appears shirtless, while his girlfriend of 18 months cosies up to him in a PVC dress.

Before hooking up with McFly bassist Dougie, gorgeous singer Ellie was linked to stars including Greg James, Skrillex, Ed Sheeran and One Direction’s Niall Horan.

Dougie was in a long-term relationship with The Saturdays’ Frankie Sandford before enjoying a romance with artist Lara Carew-Jones.

As our gallery shows, Ellie and Dougie were first rumoured to be an item in January 2014. In our next picture, the pair end up cringing at the NBA Global Games in London.

While they cosy up together, the Kiss Cam lands on them. The flustered pair fail to pucker up but Ellie promises she will in future.

‘Apparently big faux pas to not kiss on kisscam @NBAsorry!! Ha next time!’ she Tweets.

Ellie and Dougie are snapped together more times. In February 2014, Dougie is seen leading Ellie out of London’s Soho House.

She looks suited to her casually-dressed man sporting a red and yellow stripy jumper and rock-chick tousled hair.

The couple stay very quiet about whether or not they’re together until May 2014. When asked about Ellie on ITV2 show Fearne and… McBusted, Dougie finally comments: ‘Yeah. All is good in that area.’

Ellie and Dougie soon become a little more open about their love on social media, sharing sweet Instagram photos of both each other and them together.

In a snap taken after London’s GQ Men Of The Year Awards in September 2014, Dougie really opens up about their status by writing the sweet caption: ‘Went out with my lovely lady to the GQ awards then posed in front of the washing.’

They also become happier to cuddle up and hold hands in front of paparazzi cameras, and are now doing double photoshoots, as Dougie’s latest picture shows. Aww, guys!
