London: Singer Ellie Goulding was spotted flirting with English musician Dougie Poynter during a night out at Cosmopolitan`s Ultimate Women Of The Year awards here.
The`Burn` singer was spotted holding hands with the McBusted star Poynter, who recently split from his long-time girlfriend Lara Carew-Jones at the awards night Thursday, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
An onlooker said they sneaked behind a pillar to get some privacy.
"They were deep in conversation and seemed to really be getting along. Ellie was laughing at all of Dougie`s jokes and he was being tactile touching her arm. They were talking for about an hour, as if there was no one else in the room, and then they left at the same time,” said the source.
Goulding is currently single after previously being romantically linked to electronic musician Skrillex, One Direction`s Niall Horan and actor Jeremy Irvine.
