Ellie Goulding has declared she's "punching above her weight" with boyfriend Dougie Poynter.

The 'Burn' singer paid tribute to her McFly star beau while picking up the Solo Artist prize at last night's Glamour Women of the Year Awards in London.

According to MailOnline, she said: "My boyfriend is the coolest person in the world. Definitely punching above my weight."

Ellie, 28, was accompanied to the glitzy awards by Dougie, 27, who looked super proud to have her on his arm.

The past year has been rather fantastic for Ellie, who scored a major hit with track 'Love Me Like You Do', which was written for the Fifty Shades of Grey soundtrack. It spent four weeks at the top of the UK chart and broke records for most streamed single in a week in the UK and worldwide.

She recently made a cameo in Taylor Swift's 'Bad Blood' music video.

And speaking of Taylor... Ellie's old friend and collaborator Calvin Harris - who is dating Taylor - was named Glamour's Man of the Year, thanks to a pretty incredible twelve months of chart-topping success and mega stardom.
