While hardly a full-on smooch, this was the first tactile display between the two since rumours began to swirl that they were together late last year.A source is quoted as telling the Mirror: “They are taking a break.“They are both very sad that things have hit a rough patch, but are trying to see if a little distance can help them get through it.” Despite their hectic schedules, Dougie and Ellie have travelled together frequently during their relationship (and making us jealous with Instagram posts from their trips), as well as making a number of public appearances together.Back in July, the couple posed for their first ever joint photoshoot, appearing in Rollercoaster magazine together.“Their work commitments have meant they have been spending more and more time away from each other and it has made it difficult to maintain their relationship.
It would ruin the surprise.” Where do we even start?
They may have seemed like 2014's hottest couple, but in September, Kelly had us all talking when she revealed on Twitter that the two had parted ways.
Although their split started off amicably enough, it didn't take long for things to turn bitter, with the two becoming emblazoned in an online war of words after their private nude photos were leaked online.
The pair have been spotted together on numerous occasions in the past few months, but have remained coy about their romance.
But now, Dougie has decided to open up about the new love in his life.
She fueled rumours by retweeting a Harold Pinter quote around the same time which read: ‘Oh, love finds away.’ Ellie was also linked to Prince Harry earlier this year after they were reportedly seen sharing a ‘secret snog’ under a blanket.
