Dougie Poynter and Ellie Goulding may have called time on their relationship but they're still "the best of friends" and hanging out.

The music power couple split for a second time this year, after a romance that started back in 2014, blaming their hectic work schedules for the break up.

Speaking to The Sun today, bassist Dougie said the former couple met for the first time since their separation at Coachella Music Festival in California this month.

And it all went great!

"We love each other very much. We are the best of friends," he said. "We hung out at Coachella like all day with her friends and my friends. It was really, really cool,. Everything is total fine."

He added: "It's just both being all over t he place. Like I said, we still get on really well. She's one of the most amazing people I've ever met. But just right now, it's hard."

That echoes what Ellie said in March, when she told The Mirror: "He's one of the most special people in the world and I'm so happy for him he's doing so well in LA... he's still one of my best friends and I know he feels the same."

Meanwhile, Dougie's band McFly announced today plans for a special UK summer tour called 'Anthology', in which they'll play three nights at different cities across the UK, showcasing a different album playlist on each night.
