El­lie: ‘We Have Some­thing Special’

Re­turn of the ex? They do seem close…

Look (UK) - - NEWS STORY -

We’ve al­ways thought there was some­thing still there be­tween these El­lie Gould­ing and Dougie Poyn­ter. Not only have the pair re­mained close since their split, they’ve also been spot­ted to­gether a num­ber of times and both openly gush about each other – with El­lie even re­fer­ring to Dougie as ‘the one’.

‘We have some­thing I know is special and I think other peo­ple see it – my friends see it; my fam­ily see it,’ El­lie’s ad­mit­ted pre­vi­ously. ‘But I think some things are just kind of un­fin­ished, an un­fin­ished story. I hope.’

How­ever, a year af­ter their Fe­bru­ary 2016 split (when we’d all but given up on a re­union) we’re told the pair have put their dif­fer­ences aside and have se­cretly been see­ing each other for weeks. Which is why they were snapped leav­ing the Burberry af­ter-party to­gether.

While El­lie’s been linked to judo cham­pion and per­sonal trainer Bobby Rich re­cently, our sources re­veal that she and Dougie have been grow­ing close again. It’s all be­cause El­lie, 30, has moved into a prop­erty close to Dougie’s south Lon­don home and her break in tour­ing has al­lowed them to spend time to­gether.

‘They just have so much fun to­gether,’ says our source. ‘The only rea­son they split was down to work com­mit­ments. They left the LFW par­ties to go on to her man­ager’s do. They were flirt­ing but that’s all for now.’

It’s no se­cret that El­lie strug­gled with their break-up. Af­ter part­ing ways last year, the singer spoke out, say­ing: ‘Peo­ple think I’m in­vin­ci­ble but these past few weeks have been tough. When you’re in the pub­lic eye, it seems like you’re able to deal with stuff bet­ter than any­one else, which is not re­motely true.’

Af­ter their sep­a­ra­tion, Dougie, 29, ad­mit­ted: ‘We still love each other very much. We hung out at Coachella all day, with her friends and my friends. It’s re­ally, re­ally cool.’

So could there be a proper re­union on the cards? ‘El­lie’s des­per­ate to take it slow, but Dougie al­ready seems smit­ten again,’ a close pal tells Look. Well, they wouldn’t be the first high-pro­file rub­ber­band re­la­tion­ship…

Dougie and El­lie even have the same taste in shirts
