Little Mix’s Perrie Edwards has set the record straight regarding the rumours circulating about her and Ellie Goulding’s ex, Dougie Poynter.
The pop singer revealed that her and McFly bassist Dougie are not dating when bombarded with questions about her rumoured beau at Capital FM’s Summertime Ball.
Perrie called Dougie “a good mate” and elaborated slightly, saying: “He’s a lovely guy.” What a shame! We were all utterly convinced that the pair would be this years hottest IT couple, especially as the blonde beauty admitted to having a crush on the boyband star for years whilst still dating ex fiancÃ© Zayn Malik. She said in a 2014 interview:
“Dougie from McFly started seeing Frankie Sanford from The Saturdays and I was gutted.”
It appears that Perrie’s bandmates are more smitten with the handsome bassist, with Jesy Nelson adding: “He’s very handsome, I’ll tell you that!” We couldn’t agree more, Jesy!
Perhaps the two really are just friends…; Though we’re not quite sure how anyone could manage to friendzone this hunk!
