Nope, it's the other stuff that's had us gushing, from their joint pamper sessions to dreamy holiday snaps and sweet supportive comments about each-other.

In an interview with Red mag, Ellie has opened up about her relationship with the McBusted singer, saying:

"When I met Dougie, he had no game. He was just like, 'you're really cool, let's go out.'" That relatable bit of info just makes him even cuter, right?

But Dougie's lack of "game" didn't get in the way of the romance blossoming, instead Ellie admits she pursued him, despite the fact she'd recently sworn off men, because "you don't throw something like that away".

The 'On My Mind' singer explained: "It was me that pursued him, a bit, very unexpectedly. Before him, I was having a single period and hating all men, saying never again, after a series of things that happened to me.

"I really, really thought I was going to be single for a long while. But then I met him and was like, uh-oh, game over. He was just so nice. So, you know, you don't throw something like that away so easily."

Ellie and Dougie started dating two years ago, after they met at the Cosmopolitan awards, and Ellie has her fingers crossed they last a lot longer...
