Ellie Goulding was drinking heavily and almost ‘lost it all’ before meeting boyfriend Dougie Poynter

The look of love

Ellie Goulding says her boyfriend Dougie Poynter stopped her from “losing it all” as she struggled with life in the spotlight.

The Burn singer opened up about finding fame difficult before she met her McBusted beau two years ago.

Talking about her new album, which is expected to be released later this year, she said: “I have a song on the album that is called ‘Two Years’. It’s about two years ago, which is before I met my boyfriend.

“I went through a phase of being on tour and having a really hard time and not being home, and even just struggling with having a number one song,” she explained to Refinery29.

“That was a time when I couldn’t deal with anything. I was drinking, and I was not really myself. It’s only when you come out of that phase you realise you were in trouble.”

Ellie has previously opened up about her difficult childhood growing up on a council estate after her father walked out.
