Ella Eyre has DIY skilled boyfriend

Ella Eyre's boyfriend Lewi Morgan is her DIY hero.

The 'Together' singer and the Rixton drummer have been an item for most of 2015 and Ella has revealed her hunky man has been helping out around her apartment by putting together flat-pack furniture for her.

The loved-up pair have also taken a major step in their relationship and proven they're getting serious by going together to Ikea, the popular Swedish home furnishings store.

Speaking at the MOBO Awards nominations announcement in London on Wednesday (30.09.15) - which he attended with her - she told BANG Showbiz: "Lewi is good, he's here. He's between albums at the moment so he's spending a lot of time building things in my house.

"We bought a wardrobe this week which took ages to put together! It's really cool, I needed it because I'm running out of space. He built it and I was doing more of the clearing away, getting rid of the packaging and then organising everything else that was going in the wardrobe so it was a team effort, I think!

"We also went to Ikea the other night and we spent two hours there and came away with one scrubbing brush. Going to Ikea is more about going for the meatballs, isn't it? Who doesn't enjoy Ikea meatballs! He had never been to Ikea before so it was great; it was the best day ever. I drive a little Fiat 500 so I was never going to fit anything in it anyway."

When asked if he minds doing so much DIY for her, Ella said with a smile: "He's got to be OK with it! Well, he's still around so he must be."

Although Lewi spends a lot time at Ella's London apartment, he is yet to officially move in and that suits the 21-year-old pop beauty because she loves staying at his home in Manchester.

She said: "It may as well be the two of us living there, but he still lives in Manchester and I love it in Manchester so I'm always back and forth."

Although Ella and Lewi have to miss out on time together because of their busy careers she has devised a plan to use their jobs so they can hang out with one another.

She said: "I drag him to events, it's just nice to spend any time that we can together really."

Ella is up for Best Female at the 20th MOBO Awards which take place on Wednesday November 4 at Leeds' First Direct Arena.
