McFly bassist Dougie Poynter ‘splits from model girlfriend Maddy Elmer’ – after the pair found lockdown ‘very hard’

Dougie Poynter has reportedly split from his girlfriend Maddy Elmer. 

The McFly bassist, 34, and the model dated for over two-and-half-years, with their romance being confirmed by cosy photographs outside the exclusive Soho House in London back in June 2019. 

But it has been said the pair mutually decided to part ways last year, after finding lockdown ‘very hard.’

Sources confirmed to The Sun: ‘Maddy and Dougie seemed to be a great match. They had a lot in common, including their passion for unusual animals, like insects and reptiles.

‘But like a lot of couples they found lockdown very hard and they decided to split last year.

‘It was a very upsetting time for both of them, but the decision was mutual.’

MailOnline has reached out to Dougie’s representatives for comment.

The pair were last spotted together at a music festival in July.   

Dougie previously dated The Saturdays star Frankie Bridge – now a mother-of-two and married to former footballer Wayne Bridge – from 2009 to late 2010. 

Their break-up reportedly left Dougie heartbroken and resulted in the McFly musician checking into The Priory for depression, and he later confessed to attempting suicide at his lowest point.

Dougie also dated songstress Ellie Goulding, who is married to art dealer Caspar Jopling, on-and-off between 2014 and 2016.

The pair dated for two years, and once parted ways in December 2015 before rekindling their romance at the beginning of the next year.

They originally kept their relationship under wraps for some time before the bassist confirmed the rumours to Fearne Cotton during a fly-on-the-wall documentary with McBusted in May 2014.  

Ellie confirmed the pair had split for good in March 2016 due to the musicians’ hectic schedules.
