Could wedding bells be on the horizon for Ellie Goulding and her boyfriend Dougie Poynter? The couple's friends certainly seem to think so. DJ Calvin Harris has already offered to spin the tunes when the Lights singer and Dougie tie the knot.

"Calvin Harris has already offered to play at our wedding," said Ellie, speaking to Elle magazine as this month's cover girl. "Not that we've organised one. But the offer has been made."

The 28-year-old has been in a relationship with McBusted's Dougie for just over a year, and the sweet couple have been inseparable ever since getting together.

Ellie Goulding said of her boyfriend Dougie Poynter: "He is definitely the one forever"

While at first the lovebirds were keen to keep their romance under wraps, Ellie has now admitted: "He is definitely the one forever. And you know what, when I was a teenager, I fancied him but I thought he was so out of my league. Way too good-looking for me."

Speaking about her boyfriend's troubled past – which has seen Dougie spend time in rehab for depression, alcohol and substance abuse – the blonde beauty added: "He's been through a lot, and he has a quiet depth that I love."

Ellie also set the record straight on her dating history. The singer was said to be the subject of Ed Sheeran's hit track Don't, after she reportedly strayed away with Niall Horan from One Direction.

"When I was a teenager, I fancied him but I thought he was so out of my league," Ellie admitted

However, Ellie clarified: "I did go on a few dates with Niall but I was never in a relationship with Ed. I have absolutely no idea where that came from and why it was turned into such a big thing."

"I find it so frustrating that female musicians are constantly defined by the men they have or haven't dated," she added. "It's something I've talked about with Taylor [Swift] a lot. She definitely feels that. She gets bothered by it.

"It's like, you can be a great artist, you can write great songs, but the thing that everyone is going to talk about is some relationship they think you have had or not had. It's definitely something we both think happens to female artists over male artists."
