The 'Love Me Like You Do' hitmaker follows a diet free of dairy products, so while touring in Australia, she was excited to hear from a fan that there was a place she could enjoy the calorific meal without consuming real sea creatures.

A fan posted on Twitter: "Remember to check out the vegan fish and chips store here in Sydney!"

She replied: "Omg where is that (sic)"

But while she is on the hunt for her food, Ellie would appreciate it if her fans approached her, rather than following at a distance.

She tweeted: "I'd feel way more comfortable if you approached me to begin with, as you can understand.

"I really don't like being followed secretly when I'm out and about... no one should get followed like that unknowingly."

The 29-year-old singer previously admitted that sticking to a vegan diet is "challenging".

She said: "It's challenging, but not impossible. You just have to eat or drink a lot of greens. I make green juice for myself almost every day. I put in things like bananas, avocado, spinach, broccoli - whatever's in my fridge, really.

"Sweet-potato fries and salad are my absolute favourites. They make the perfect meal. I eat a lot of quinoa and nuts, too, but I also love eating chips. It's actually easy to be a bad vegan because a lot of junk foods are vegan!"

But the 'Starry Eyed' hitmaker still enjoys drinking alcohol now and again.

She said: "I'm not ashamed to talk about my past. I smoked for a long time. I still drink alcohol. I believe you have to find balance. We're expected to stay fit and eat healthy all the time, but that's just never going to happen.

"We all have to deal with stress. Sometimes at the end of the day, I want to have a drink, and I'm not ashamed of that."
