Dougie Poynter has ruled out ever collaborating with his girlfriend Ellie Goulding.

McFly star Dougie has said he doesn't want to team up with Ellie for a song because he reckons it would ruin her career.

He told Notion magazine: "No I wouldn't want to destroy her career. You've never heard me sing solo."

It's a shame, as last year Ellie gushed about McBusted member Dougie saying his voice made her "melt". 'Starry Eyed' singer Ellie said the pair often sing together when at home and said she would "happily" have Dougie on her album.

She told Capital FM at the time: "He has got a really amazing voice. His voice literally makes me melt, and he doesn't believe me! When he sings I just, like, collapse. I love his voice so much."

Ellie and Dougie fuelled rumours of a romance from early last year after they were spotted together on numerous occasions, but they always claimed they were just friends.

Dougie confirmed their relationship during the Fearne and.... McBusted documentary, which aired on ITV2 in May 2014. Since then, the pair have been pretty loved-up, and if they're not sitting on FROW together, they're sharing cute photos via social media.
