The former ‘I’m A Celebrity’ winner previously dated The Saturdays singer Frankie Sandford, who he started going out with when they were still teenagers.Meanwhile in the past Ellie has been linked to Radio 1 DJ Greg James and electronic music star Skrillex.
A friend of Dougie's told the Metro newspaper: "He is devastated.
He didn't see it coming at all and still doesn't know why.
“He saw himself getting married and having kids and being with her for life. It got to the point where he was struggling to get through the day so he decided to seek help at the Priory clinic.
He’s been in there working hard on getting his head straight.”Though Frankie Sandford was linked to Ashley Cole during his marriage to Girls Aloud star Cheryl, causing an angry denial from The Saturdays’ star, Frankie is again being linked to the Chelsea defender.
Mc Busted star Dougie Poynter has confirmed that he is in a relationship with pop singer Ellie Goulding.
