British pop star Ellie Goulding has dismissed rumours of a split from Dougie Poynter after they were spotted cuddling during a shopping trip in England.

The Burn hitmaker has been dating the MCFly rocker since last year (13), but they were recently reported to have ended their romance after the singer was pictured frolicking with a personal trainer on a vacation in Miami, Florida.

However, Goulding has now been pictured walking through Manchester, England with her arms around Poynter, ending speculation about a split.

They were photographed smiling and cuddling during the shopping trip.
