Ellie Goulding has ruled out an engagement to boyfriend Dougie Poynter, admitting they won't be tying the knot anytime soon.

She and Dougie have been dating for over two years now, but the pair were forced to split briefly back in December after their busy schedules had put strain on their relationship.

Last month, it was revealed the 'On My Mind' singer and her McFly beau are back together again, but Ellie has now admitted she and Dougie are being realistic about their romance and taking things slow.

In a recent interview with the Daily Mirror, Ellie opened up on her rekindled romance and explained she and Dougie are still battling with the distance between them.

Due to the nature of their careers, the pair can go weeks without seeing each other. Ellie has just kicked off her European tour before then heading to the US to perform across twenty dates there too.

Dougie, meanwhile, is heading to LA to focus on his modelling.

Speaking to the newspaper, Ellie said: "We're realistic about the fact that I'm in Europe and he's in LA and we take each day as it comes... I won't see him for a long time."

When asked if she thinks the pair will wed, Ellie admitted she couldn't see an engagement happening any time soon, as they have decided to take things slow this time round.

Ellie's comments come after it was reported she and Dougie were taking a break.

A source at the time revealed: "Their work commitments have meant they have been spending more and more time away from each other and it has made it difficult to maintain their relationship. 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."

Despite spending some time apart, Ellie and Dougie reunited in January with Dougie reportedly telling The Sun things were "really good" between the pair.

Prior to their brief break, the couple had seemed pretty smitten and Ellie had even claimed she was ready to marry Dougie.

Opening up about how she would want to tie the knot, Ellie told Cosmopolitan: "It's nice to think of doing everything the traditional way: having a church wedding, with all my family in one place - I love the idea of that."
