Only a few days after denying the romance, Dougie Poynter and Ellie Goulding were spotted leaving her house in London last night.
The pair (and Ellie's moss green Alexander Wang Emile handbag) were unhappily papped as they enjoyed each other's company on a low key date in the capital.
This unsurprising sighting was a week after McFly's Dougie insisted the two of them had a purely platonic relationship during his recent appearance on the Jonathan Ross Show.
They started the rumour mill when the pair were seen holding hands at Cosmopolitan's Ultimate Women of the Year awards in December – very shortly after Dougie's long term relationship with the artist Lara Carew-Jones came to an end.
They say no, but that Alexander Wang bag told us yes. Just call us the bag whisperer.
