They have been joined at the hip since embarking on their relationship, and Wednesday proved to be no exception as Ellie Goulding and Dougie Poynter stepped out in London.

The couple enjoyed a romantic stroll following a visit to a local coffee shop, where they picked up some refreshments on a seasonably warm day in the capital.

Sporting a black denim jacket with matching skinny jeans, Ellie looked casual as she walked arm in arm with the McBusted bassist.

The 28-year-old added a splash of colour to an otherwise neutral ensemble courtesy of her pink and black Nike Air trainers, while her blonde locks were easily maintained with a simple centre parting.

Clearly smitten, Ellie was hand in hand with Dougie for much of their outing, even resting her head on his shoulder as they walked past a strong of local stores.

At one point she coiled an arm around the musician’s waist while he tucked into a takeaway snack.

With his long hair partially hidden beneath a wide brimmed hat, Dougie oozed hipster cool as he chatted to his girlfriend.

The 27-year-old looked equally trendy in a faded denim jacket and skinny jeans – a look he completed with his own pair of Nike running shoes.

Walking side by side, the couple also revealed the matching skull and crossbones tattoos they recently had inked on to their middle fingers.

Ellie and Dougie have become inseparable over the last year, having met at the Cosmopolitan Ultimate Women Of The Year Awards in December 2013.

The Starry Eyed singer joined Dougie on tour with McBusted Down Under recently, and the pair are often seen hand-in-hand at events or in the streets of London.

In McFly’s autobiography Dougie revealed he had attempted suicide as he struggled to overcome his battle with alcohol in February 2011 – just before entering rehab.
