The pop star pair were seen out and about in London on Wednesday night (26 February), but looked as if they'd rather not be photographed together.
Now, we completely get that girls and guys can be just friends and hang out as friends, but obviously when you're two very famous people the are they or aren't they dating rumours will fly…
During an appearance on The Jonathan Ross Show at the weekend, McBusted star Dougie insisted of Ellie: "We're just friends."
Rumours about their 'friendship' have been swirling for a while, fuelled by little things like Dougie watching Ellie in concert, a night together at a bowling alley (admittedly surrounded by other celebs) and a picture of them side of stage at a Taylor Swift gig with their arms around each other.
Dougie was even photographed in what appeared to be Stockholm while Ellie was performing in the city. Now, we love our friends and all, but we've never flown to another country to be with them while they're working...
Maybe-couple Ellie and Dougie also attended a London Fashion Week party together on 17 February, where they were later snapped in the back of a car looking as if they wanted to keep a low profile.
A source told The Metro: "Ellie looked completely smitten with Dougie… They looked very cute together."
It's all so confusing, isn't it?
