Ellie Goulding and Dougie Poynter split again

Ellie Goulding and Dougie Poynter have split up - again.

The 'Army' singer and McBusted bassist only just got back together two weeks ago after going on a short break in December - due to their demanding schedules - but now it seems they've parted ways once more over their workload.

A source told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "They are finding it hard to spend time together as Ellie's music career takes her all over the world and she is pulled in different directions. Dougie is trying to make it in America as an actor and they are drifting apart."

The news the couple, who have been dating on and off since 2013, have called time on their relationship for the second time will no doubt come as a surprise to fans as the 28-year-old beauty recently admitted their romance was back on track and they were taking each day as it comes.

She said: "We're realistic about the fact that I'm in Europe and he's in Los Angeles and we take each day as it comes ... I won't see him for a long time."

The blonde singer was even thinking about marriage a few months ago as she admitted she originally didn't want to get hitched out of fear of getting divorced, but her opinion has taken a U-turn since she began dating her beau.
