Dougie wouldn't do that unless he was serious about her.

It is his longest relationship since he was with Ellie [Goulding] and he's in a really good place." The 31-year-old hunk dated Ellie Goulding for two years before they split in 2016.

Dougie took her on holiday at the end of April and the beginning of May and she was introduced to his Mc Busted bandmate James Bourne.

The band have since gone on to become a household name with sell-out tours.

They have released six studio albums and two “Best ofs”.

Update: uk has made an article as well now, which has some ‘sources’ (friends) confirming the split.

You can read it below, but I still hope it’s just a rumour as none of the girls have confirmed it, and they are usually pretty open about it!

It’s not got any sources to back this up on, so we’ll keep an eye out on the girls’ Twitter and so.
