Ellie Goulding has told fans about the scary moment a van she was travelling in fell through ice in Norway.

The 'On My Mind' singer ventured to Norway a few weeks back, but hadn't mentioned the incident, choosing to share a slew of stunning snow-drenched snaps to her Instagram instead.

However, she and her friend Conor McDonnell (Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's official wedding photographer) decided to open up about the crash, after realising it was "too mad of a story not to tell."

Both Ellie and Conor shared the same photo of their van half submerged into water - in the middle of nowhere.

Ellie told her followers: "Throwback to a few weeks ago when myself and @conormcdphoto nearly ended up in a lake in -30... Note to self don't drive a BV206 over a frozen lake."

Conor, meanwhile, said: "So me and @elliegoulding weren't going to post about this, but we decided that it's too mad of a story not to tell. This photo is from when we were in Norway a few weeks ago - That moment when you're in -25 in the middle of nowhere in Norway in the pitch black and your belt wagon crashes through the ice in the middle of a lake and you have to emergency evacuate through the roof.

"'Oh sh*t we're in' was my first thought. Second was to take photos. We were in the front cabin. That is pretty much under water in this photo. A few minutes later it was all completely gone under the water and ice for good."

Scary stuff, right?

Luckily, both Ellie and Conor are ok and we're glad to hear it!

News of Ellie's crash comes after it was recently reported she and Dougie Poynter had reunited following a brief break.

The much-loved couple had been dating for nearly two years, before splitting in December last year. It was claimed their busy schedules had put strain on their relationship, as Dougie and Ellie were forced to spend more and more time apart.

A source, at the time, revealed: "They've decided to have a temporary break to see if they can work things out. They are both very sad that things have hit a rough patch... but they are trying to see if a little distance can help them get through it."

A month later, Ellie and Dougie sparked speculation they are back together. The couple were pictured out together and both took to social media to pay tribute to the other. While Ellie gushed about Dougie making his catwalk debut, Dougie wished his "very special/rad lady" a happy birthday.
