Ellie started playing the clarinet and guitar (not at the same time, she's not mental) when she was just nine years old.
She dropped out of uni because being a popstar seemed like a better idea and how right she was.
In 2010 she won a Brit award, was top of the BBC Sound Of... poll and her debut album 'Lights' entered the charts at Number One. What did you do in 2010? Not that, we would wager, unless you happen to quite literally be Ellie Goulding.
She's 'bezzie mates' with producer Starsmith, who worked on the majority of 'Lights'.
Her cover of Elton John's 'Your Song' was used in John Lewis' Christmas ad campaign a couple of years ago, which hopefully meant lots of free stuff for Ellie. A nice coat perhaps, or something from the cookware section.
She's a big fan of jogging.
Prince William had her sing a song or two at his wedding pissup thing.
Her second album 'Halcyon' is really good, thanks for asking.
