McFly are getting back together - but are Dougie and Ellie?

Dougie Poynter and Ellie Goulding left us all devastated when they called time on their relationship earlier this year.

Now they’re breaking our hearts all over again by admitting that they’re still in love and have even been hanging out again – but can’t quite make it work. *sob*


Ellie Goulding quitting music after Dougie Poynter split?

McFly star Dougie, 28, has broken his silence on the split and revealed that he and Ellie reunited for the first time since the break-up at Coachella last week.

‘We love each other very much. We are the best of friends,’ the guitar player says.

‘We hung out at Coachella, like all day, with her friends and my friends. It was really, really cool. Everything is totally fine.’

Awww. This sounds pretty hopeful for the pair getting back together, right?

But sadly Dougie has heartbreakingly admitted that it’s not happening at this moment in time and he’s not sure why.

‘It’s just both being all over the place,’ he tells The Sun. ‘Like I said, we still get on really well.

‘She’s one of the most amazing people I’ve ever met. But just right now, it’s hard. I’m single now.’

Oh Dougie, pass us the tissues! The musician’s confession is made all the more upsetting because things always looked pretty promising for him and 29-year-old Ellie.

During their relationship – which began in 2014 – the couple got matching tattoos and even hinted at marriage and children one day.

In December though they were reported to have taken a break from their romance and, despite briefly giving it another go earlier this year, things ended for good in February.

Luckily Dougie has got plenty of other things going on to distract him from the Ellie split, having moved to Los Angeles where he’s pursing various acting roles.

‘No matter what I think I’ll be spending a lot more time out in LA,’ he reveals.

‘Overall I’m just happier there.’

He’s also reuniting with his McFly bandmates for a tour this summer which will see the boys perform every song they’ve ever recorded over three nights in four cities. We can’t wait!
