Ellie Goulding may be snogging Prince Harry, but her ex Dougie Poynter has nabbed himself a relatively high-profile love interest too.
Perrie Edwards isn’t quite royalty, mind – though Little Mix fans might argue otherwise. The Mc Fly bassist, 28, and girl band star, 22, apparently got close at the recent Glamour Women of The Year Awards – and if this is the real deal it’s been a long time coming.
‘I don’t know Ellie, but from the outside looking in, they look perfectly suited and they seem happy, which is nice,’ Frankie added.
DOUGIE Poynter hit the headlines earlier this year after he was spotted with his on/off girlfriend Ellie Goulding.
Perrie’s had a thing for Mr Poynter for ages – since before 2008, when he started dating Frankie Bridge (née Sandford) from The Saturdays, truth be told.
One source told The Sun newspaper: ‘Perrie looked amazing and caught Dougie’s eye.
Mc Fly rose to fame with their first single 5 Colours in Her Hair and went to Number One Their first album, Room on the 3rd Floor, also hit Number One and earned the boys a Guinness World Record for being the youngest band to have a debut album enter the charts in the top position, previously held by The Beatles.
The band have since gone on to become a household name with sell-out tours.
"They looked really happy with each other, and got really close at the edge of the stage." The Belvedere event saw Dougie pictured with Pussycat Doll Ashley Roberts – but it seems the Mc Fly singer had his eye on someone else.
They have released six studio albums and two “Best ofs”.
Dougie is also credited as a lead writer and co-writer on many of Mc Fly's songs.
Meanwhile, the Mc Busted musician is currently dating singer Ellie Goulding and the pair have been rumoured to be secretly engaged.
She revealed that she even stays in touch with people in Dougie’s life at the moment.
