Ellie 'hindered' by good reputation

Ellie Goulding says too many men see her as wife material

Ellie Goulding has claimed she can't get a boyfriend because too many people see her as wife material.

The Burn singer said she had a squeaky clean image that was holding her back and wasn't always well deserved.

She told Marie Claire: "People seem to think I'm more wife material than girlfriend material. That's probably why I'm single! People want to marry me - and nothing before it."

Ellie, who stripped off for a photoshoot for the magazine, has been linked to One Direction's Niall Horan, singer Ed Sheeran and actor Jeremy Irvine in the past.

She added: "People might think I am [squeaky clean] but I'm not. I've been quite clever about what gets in the press but I've done some stupid things, some reckless things. A few too many drinks have caused a lot of things to happen."

The Your Song star has also got to know Prince William and wife Kate, who chose her cover of Elton John's hit for their wedding first dance.

She revealed: "They're just a really awesome couple, lovely people, so I understand why people are fascinated by them."

Getting handsomely rewarded for your communication skills will be gratifying. When one door closes, another will usually open.More
