Ella Eyre's Mexican break

Ella Eyre's Mexican break

Ella Eyre can't wait for her festive holiday.

The 21-year-old singer and boyfriend Lewi Morgan reached their first anniversary together in October but have been too busy to celebrate, and are looking forward to finally marking the occasion by jetting off to Mexico on Boxing Day (26.12.15).

Asked how they celebrated their anniversary, she said: "We had to wait for the Christmas period, when it's a lot calmer and when everybody has disappeared off for a week or two.

"I'm going to Mexico with Lew on Boxing Day, which I'm very excited about.

"I think I'm more excited to be going to Mexico than I am about Christmas.

"It'll be nice to go and get some winter sunshine.

"We've done work in different countries before at the same time but that's not really a holiday."

2015 saw Ella scoop Best Female Act at the MOBO Awards and the 'Gravity' singer was thrilled to triumph in such a hotly-contested category.

She said: "It's amazing. I never, ever expect anything.

"It's always such a pleasure to be in such a strong category. There are so many strong female artists around.

"I'm proud and flattered to be a part of that. I would much rather support them than feel like I'm against them.

"I'm a big fan of all the girls in the industry and I will forever be championing that."
