Ellie Goulding wants to get back with Dougie Poynter
Ellie Goulding's relationship with Dougie Poynter is an "unfinished story".
The 'Burn' hitmaker recently split from the McFly bassist after two years of dating but she is hoping they can get back together in the future because they have a "special" connection.
Asked if they can work things out, she said: "Maybe. I hope so. We have something I know is special and I think other people see it - my friends see it, my family see it...
"But I think some things are just kind of unfinished, an unfinished story. I hope so - he's a real gem and he's doing so well and he's keeping busy, as am I.
"I hope so, he's a great guy."
And it wasn't just Ellie, 29, who was upset by the break-up.
She told heat magazine: "My nana was, like, really sad."
While the blonde beauty is planning a break from music when her current tour ends later this year, she will still keep busy writing songs, though she doesn't know yet whether she'll be writing about her heartbreak.
She said: "Everyone knows I write about things that have happened in my life, but it's too early to say.
"It's very new and very different and I think people forget me breaking up with someone is no different to them breaking up with someone - it's s**t.
"But if I do write about him, it will probably be nice stuff."
