Dougie Poynter - Dougie Poynter confirms Ellie Goulding romance

Dougie Poynter has admitted that he is dating Ellie Goulding.

The McBusted star has been spotted with the 'Burn' singer numerous times over the past few months, sparking rumours of a romance, and he's now admitted that they are a couple.

He said: ''We've been seeing each other since last year. Ellie's a great girl, such a lovely person and a breath of fresh air in this industry.''

The 26-year-old musician - who spent time in rehab after suffering from depression following his break-up from The Saturdays singer Frankie Sandford - refused to comment on the rumours they were dating last week, claiming the pair were ''just friends'', but he's now decided to come clean.

He told the Daily Mail newspaper: ''In the music industry you always bump into the same people, so it's nice when you get to meet other musicians you like and want to spend time with.''

Dougie - whose former band, McFly, joined forces with fellow pop-rockers Busted last year - was recently signed to Storm Model Management under the 'Storm Artists' category which includes other musicians such as Paolo Nutini.

A source said previously: ''Dougie has got great style, and he's really caught the eye of some top scouts. His career looks like it will really take off in the future.''
