The 'Love Me Like You Do' hitmaker started dating the McBusted bassist in 2013 before briefly splitting a couple of months ago due to their hectic schedules but whilst Ellie insists they are now back on track, they take each day as it comes.

She told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "We're realistic about the fact that I'm in Europe and he's in LA and we take each day as it comes ... I won't see him for a long time."

Meanwhile, the 29-year-old beauty previously claimed she "hated all men" before the met the 28-year-old musician.

She shared: "Before him, I was having a single period and hating all men, saying never again, after a series of things that happened to me. But then I met him and was like, uh-oh, game over. He was just so nice.

"The last month has been really testing, on everything, on my sanity. The music industry isn't like other industries - there are no rules about working hours, or taking breaks. A working day will start with a 4am flight and finish at 3am the next day. Sometimes I don't have time to eat in the day."
