Dougie Poynter has denied he is engaged to Ellie Goulding.

It seems celebs just can't get enough of sparking speculation by wearing rings on THAT finger.

After Kylie Jenner was spotted with a piece of jewellery on her ring finger this week, now Dougie has been forced to deny rumours that he is engaged to Ellie after she wore a band on her ring finger at an event last week.

Dougie says that he and Ellie are not engaged

Speaking backstage at the Royal Variety Performance, where he performed with his McBusted bandmates, Dougie responded to questions about a possible engagement with: "No. It was just a ring that fit on that finger. It didn't really look like an engagement ring though, did it?"

His bandmate Harry Judd then joked: "That would have been a lame engagement ring, Doug."
