Dougie, 29, first found fame in 2003 alongside his McFly bandmates - Tom Fletcher, Danny Jones and Harry Judd.

Recently, following a successful tour with super-group McBusted, the lads have all been focusing on solo projects, with Dougie getting into acting.

In October 2015, it was reported that his then-girlfriend Ellie Goulding had encouraged Dougie to think about treading the boards. Apparently, Dougie had thought about an acting career for a long time, but Ellie gave him the final push.

Dougie and Ellie split in March this year.
